“I was really happy with the way we answered the bell,” Smith said. “We came out and went right down the field and put seven on the board. I thought we established the line of scrimmage. I thought we ran the ball well all game but it came down to us making mistakes and penalties. It was stupid stuff; Offsides, holding, facemasks just when we didn’t need it.”

The Raiders repeatedly set back their own drives with ill-advised penalties, and on defense, just about every time they thought they found a way to slow the Blue Devils’ potent offense, dual-threat quarterback Chris Parker and backup running back Tegha Egbiri sprung long scoring plays.
Sharp turned 17 carries into 87 yards and a score and Daniel Seelagy had 58 yards on eight carries. Lawrence grad Cameren Kitchen, a post-graduate at Hun, had five touches for 52 yards from scrimmage. Vidas completed 13 of 24 passes for 155 yards.
But the Raiders liked the position they found themselves in when they went right down the field on seven plays, covering 47 yards capped by a 2-yard Chris Sharp rushing touchdown on its opening drive of the game.
That would be the last complete drive Hun managed to put together, however, as Poly Prep responded with five unanswered scores en route to a 34-7 victory on a sun-splashed and unseasonably hot day at Natale Family Field.

“We were feeling good at that point,” Sharp said. “We just had to stop them on defense.”

PRINCETON TWP. — Todd Smith knew his Hun School football team had a challenge on its hands when New York prep school power Poly Prep Country Day took the trip south with four games under its belt against the Raiders' one.
“I thought we ran the ball very well and I think that’s one of the best teams that we’re going to play all year,” Smith said. “We’re not going to see too many teams that look like that.”
“There’s no excuse for those penalties, but they were a pretty well-seasoned team,” Smith said. “Overall I was pretty happy. I don’t think the final score is indicative of the way we played but we have to learn from the mistakes.”
Parker hit Nick Storz on a 42-yard throwback screen for a touchdown on the Blue Devils’ fourth play of the third quarter and Egbiri extended the lead to 27-7 going into the fourth with a 9-yard touchdown run with 39 seconds left in the third.
Hun still led, 7-6, with 1:27 to play in the first half and looked to convert a third-and-18 from its own 33. Instead, quarterback Simon Vadas’ pass attempt missed the intended target and was intercepted by Parker and returned 44 yards for a touchdown to put Poly Prep ahead, 13-7, at the half.
“Turnovers will kill you,” Smith said. “We want to run our entire offense against every team that we play but we couldn’t do that today. We didn’t do a good job up front with protection. Simon was running around back there all day.”
