The undefeated Willingboro Chimeras arrived at Moorestown as if they knew they were going to win this game on Saturday afternoon. With that much confidence, there was no stopping Willingboro in achieving their goal. Behind the running of Cornell Brockington and a very aggressive defense, the Chimeras extended their winning streak to an overall record of 6-0 with their 46-13 thrashing of Moorestown. Willingboro's Brockington crossed the goal line six times in this Burlington County Liberty Division football match.
Coming into this game, the Quakers from Moorestown (1-5) had their work cut out for them in search of their first divisional win. The Liberty Division this year has two high school football programs that are having excellent years. On top and riding high with their success are both the Holy Cross Lancers and today's opponent the Willingboro Chimeras. Tough times were ahead of Coach Frank Paris and his Quakers.
From the beginning of this game, Willingboro were ready to play this game. The Chimeras were the first one to score with 9:21 in the first quarter. Brockington got loose for a 29-yard touchdown run and a 6-0 lead. The Quakers took advantage of a fumbled punt attempt with 7:51 showing on the clock. Moorestown tied the score at six all when Doyle scored from 15 yards out. Brockington scored the last touchdown and two point conversion to end the scoring in the first half 14-6.
On this day, it was the unstoppable Cornell Brockington and the offensive line. He would score three more rushing touchdowns, plus one receiving in the fourth quarter to cap off the scoring for the day. The Chimeras defense held the talented junior running back Albert Young out of the end zone all day. Willingboro will host Franklin Township next week and then the long awaited divisional meeting with Holy Cross.
