WARE -- McCann Tech’s football season continues to be perfect.
The Hornets gave up a second-quarter touchdown to Ware, but outscored the indians 27-0 in the second half to remain undefeated in a 34-8 win Saturday afternoon.
"This was very important for us. They were playing for first place against us," McCann coach Bob LeClair said. "We really needed this."
With the win, the Hornets improve to 4-0 overall and 4-0 in the Tri-County League. Ware falls to 2-2 and 2-2 in the league.
Ware took an 8-7 halftime lead on a 75-yard pass play from Seth Beckland to Hunter Millier. The score came on a mixup in coverage.
LeClair said that defensively, the Hornets were pleased with the first half, except for that one play midway through the second quarter.
The Hornets took the third quarter kickoff and went on a four-minute drive that culminated in a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Nick Lincoln. A conversion pass from Lincoln to Levi Lawson put the Hornets up 15-8, and they never trailed again.
McCann blew the game open with three touchdowns in the final four minutes of the fourth quarter.
"We wore them down," said LeClair. "The time of possession was in our favor the whole game."
Lawson, who rushed for 81 yards on six carries and caught four passes for 83 yards, scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. He ran one in from 35 yards out and caught a 60-yard pass from Lincoln.
Lincoln was 8-of-13 passing for 164 yards and the one touchdown. He did not throw an interception.
Dylan Darby ran for 120 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown while Brett Pecor rushed for 90 yards on 16 carries.
McCann’s Rahmer Vincent caught four passes for 82 yards.
The McCann defense did a number on Ware running back Zered McCoy. He had 73 yards rushing in the game, but had 30 going into the fourth quarter.
