MONTCLAIR, NJ — The West Orange football team rolled to a 35-6 victory over traditional power Montclair Saturday afternoon at Woodman Field.
Shakhi Carson, a senior running back committed to Kent State, carried 16 times for 112 yards and a 31-yard touchdown for the Mountaineers (2-1), who led, 21-6, at halftime.
Jehki Williams, Makhi Green and Mekhi Branch each scored a rushing TD for West Orange, and senior quarterback Mason Murdock completed 19 of 32 passes for 196 yards and a TD pass to Amiyn Hanks.
The Mountaineers, still playing without Stanford-bound senior receiver Jayson Raines, who was injured in the team's first game two weeks ago, received a strong effort from its defense. Montclair committed six turnovers against West Orange.
West Orange's next scheduled game is Saturday at 1 p.m. on the road against East Orange.
