Westminster football drops road game against Sewanee

For the second week in a row, Westminster College football lost by a 41-6 scoreline, this time against Sewanee Saturday in Sewanee, Tennessee.

The Blue Jays' rushing game was one of their bright spots in the defeat. As a team, Westminster ran for 120 yards on 45 attempts.

One of those runs was Westminster's only scoring play. With 6:08 left in the fourth quarter, Jordan Kern took it to the house for a 3-yard touchdown run and made it Tigers 35-6 Blue Jays.

Kern was Westminster's rushing leader with 47 yards on 10 carries; his longest run was 16 yards.

Defensively, the Blue Jays were led by Justin Scales who recorded six tackles and one sack.

While Scales had a good individual game for Westminster on defense, the team was shredded by Sewanee's offense. The second quarter was when it was most apparent as the Tigers registered 21 points.

In that quarter, Jeremiah Young threw two touchdown passes to two different receivers.

Young threw his first touchdown to Kaleb Seay on a 34-yard pass with 13:46 left in the second quarter. A little more than three minutes later, Young tossed a 45-yard touchdown pass to Cyrus Wilson.

On the ground, Micahel McGhee was a menace to the Blue Jays' defense, picking up 125 rushing yards on 15 attempts while scoring two touchdowns.

Westminster will have to get its offense going if it wants to win games; the Blue Jays have only scored 12 points through three games.

The Blue Jays (0-3) will hope to do so against Rhodes (1-1) at 6 p.m. Saturday in Memphis, Tennessee.
