MORRISTOWN, NJ- After just 3 games in 2019, the Morristown Colonials equaled their win total from a year ago, after a dominant 38-7 outing against Chatham. The victory was Morristown’s second straight and the uptick in offense, led by junior QB Jackson Willette is a big reason why.
Willette passed for over 200 yards and 3 total touchdowns, including the opening score of the game, which Willette lowered his shoulder and bullied into the endzone on 4th and goal.
Chatham’s only score was on their first drive, when Peter Scheilling broke a handful of tackles on his way to the endzone from 30 yards out.
A pair of Morristown penalties on 3rd down extended the scoring drive.
A.J. Jordan put the Colonials back on top on the kickoff, with a return of 80 yards, showcasing his blazing speed. He also showed off his return skills in the 2nd half, but this time on defense with a 60-yard interception return for a TD.
Willette’s big play receiver was Jack Harris, who hauled in 3 catches for 129 yards and 2 TD’s. 83 of those came on a bomb from Willette to put the Colonials up 38-7 midway thru the 3rdquarter.
38 points was more than enough for the Colonial defense, as they were flying all over the field. 7 sacks and constant pressure on the quarterback gave Chatham fits. Jordan and Jason Jones both had interceptions as Morristown’s defense stepped up in a big way.
“We moved some guys around on defense and we just all have a better understanding of what needs to be done,” said coach Power. “I’m really excited how we played a full 4 quarters today.”
Morristown will travel to Roxbury on Friday night, looking to make it 3 straight.
