Wildcats soar past Flyers
McLevedge keeps Weymouth on roll
WEYMOUTH - Behind the aerial attack of quarterback Cam McLevedge, Weymouth kept its playoff hopes alive by rolling past Framingham, 50-0, last night in a Bay State Carey matchup.
We absolutely didnt expect that, said coach Kevin Mackin. When we take care of the ball and dont turn the ball over were an explosive offense.
After stopping Framinghams first drive deep in Weymouth territory by recording a pair of sacks, McLevedge and the offense took over on their 13 and proceeded to march down the field, needing only seven plays to get into the end zone.
The drive was capped by McLevedges 9-yard pass to open receiver Ozzy Colarusso.
Cam makes things happen, said Mackin. Outside of the touchdown passes that he throws he really does find the open man and executes the teams offense very well.
After a faulty snap by the Flyers soared out of the end zone for a safety, McLevedge guided a nine-play, 58-yard drive that ended with him running it in on fourth-and-goal from the 4.
After Framingham turened it over with a fumble, McLevedge found Shawn Whouley with a 2-yard TD pass to make it 22-0.
The subsequent kickoff was fumbled and the Wildcats scored again one snap later, McLevedge connecting with Khary Bailey-Smith for a 26-yard TD.
McLevedge and Bailey-Smith hooked up once more before halftime, on a 16-yard TD pass, to send the Wildcats into the locker room with a 36-0 lead.
We benefited from a few Framingham turnovers tonight, said Mackin. Our guys took advantage of good field position and were able to score some points off of mistakes.
Comfortably ahead to start the second half, Weymouth (8-2) didnt let up. McLevedge went 4 for 4 for 71 yards and Ronald Homere capped the drive with a 6-yard run.
The Wildcats tacked on one final touchdown in the fourth quarter, a 9-yard run by Ryan LaFazia, to push their total to 50.
McLevedge was efficient all game, guiding just as many touchdown drives as incompletion, six. He finished 20 for 26 for 273 yards and four touchdown passes, while rushing in another.
Weymouth is now in need of some help.
In order to win the Carey Division and secure a playoff spot they must defeat Walpole on Thanksgiving and hope for a Needham loss. The Rockets hold the tiebreaker, having beaten Weymouth, 45-28.
No matter what happens we just need to take it week by week and take care of our own schedule, said Mackin. If we get help, awesome, but if we dont well still have a share of the title, which is something to be proud of.
