MORRISTOWN, NJ- Morristown's 2019 Homecoming game was spoiled by a dominant performance by West Morris (5-2), where the Colonials fell to 2-4 on the year with a 48-13 defeat. After a 2-1 start to the season, Morristown has now dropped 3 straight, with 2 road games remaining.
"West Morris is a terrific football team that's extremely well coached", said head coach John Power. "They are tough and very physical and we just have to execute better"
Quron Lattimore won the race to the pylon from 2 yards out for Morristown's opening score to cut the deficit to 8 in the 2Q. That capped off a strong Colonial drive, in which Jackson Willette was 6-6 with 70 yards.
Down 21-6 at the half, the sides exchanged 3rd quarter punts before Jack DiPietro scored from 60 yards on the first play of the drive. That demoralizing run for the Colonials, was DiPietro's 3rd of the game, and he wasn't finished just yet. On the next drive he'd add his 4th, to put West Morris up comfortably, 34-6.
After a West Morris pick six, Jack Harris sparked the crowd with a 75-yard catch and run for a touchdown. Harris was solid yet again, hauling in 4 passes for 129 yards and that score.
"We need to continue to be more disciplined and putting in a full 4 quarters of football", said coach Power.
Morristown will look to snap this 3-game skid next weekend at Delbarton.
