Thomas leads Allegany to 42-8 win

NEW PARIS, Pa. — After winning three straight games, Chestnut Ridge lost its second in a row Friday night. The Lions were pummeled, 42-8, by Allegany in front of a big home crowd in New Paris.

The Allegany Campers, a Division 1A team from Maryland, came into the game with a 6-2 record, and an offense that averaged over 40 points per game.

The Campers will enter their Homecoming match with Fort Hill on Saturday with some possible playoff implications. Boonsboro owns the top seed in Maryland 1A West, with Fort Hill and Allegany following in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. A Boonsboro win this weekend could lock in a rematch for the two schools in the opening round of the playoffs.

Chestnut Ridge got off to a slow start. Quarterback Beau Bosch fumbled on the Lions’ first drive, and the Campers capitalized immediately.

Dylan Shockey scored on a 4-yard run. The Campers missed the ensuing extra point, which made the lead just 6-0.

The Lions responded with a 10-play, 72-yard scoring drive, capped off with a Jacob Mock touchdown run of 23 yards.

Allegany dominated from that point forward, dominating the line of scrimmage on offense, and perfecting a ‘bend but don’t break’ approach on defense.

Christian Thomas scored on a dazzling 77-yard touchdown run. The Campers failed to convert on their two-point conversion attempt.

Chestnut Ridge trailed at the half, 12-8, with the game still in range.

The second half was entirely a different story. Allegany scored rushing touchdowns on all four of its second half possessions. The Campers controlled the clock, and only lost yardage on one play in the half.

Dylan Shockey got the second half scoring started with his seven yard touchdown run. Shockey finished with 88 yards on 14 carries to go along with his two scores.

Running back Madison Wolford completed a pass to wideout Hayden Bosley on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt. The trick play gave Allegany a 20-8 lead.

Thomas iced the game, scoring on each of the next two Allegany drives. Thomas finished with three touchdowns and an impressive 195 yards on just 12 carries.

When asked about his team’s defensive performance, Chestnut Ridge head coach Max Shoemaker said, “They are very big, strong, and talented up front. Their linemen are terrific. We knew it was going to be a big challenge for us. Our kids knew and understood the gameplan, but they were just the better team tonight.”

After the two touchdowns by Thomas, Allegany suddenly led, 35-8, and all hope was lost for the Lions.

The Campers kept their foot on the gas until the final whistle sounded. Backup quarterback Trenton Eirich scored with less than two minutes left. The scoreboard read: Allegany 42, Chestnut Ridge 8.
