Football: Williamstown beats Timber Creek


Junior fullback John Chamberlin carried 41 times for 189 yards and two TDs as Williamstown rallied for a 26-18 victory over Timber Creek in a battle of Top 3 teams on Friday.

Chamberlin carried 27 times in the seconf half, as No. 3 Williamstown (4-0) rallied from a 12-6 deficit to stun No. 2 Timber Creek (2-2).

Junior Marques Little scored two TDs and forced a fumble for Williamstown.

Williamstown coach Frank Fucetola said the victory was a "statement game," for the Braves, a program that has been on the rise in recent years.

Chamberlin carried 10 times as Williamstown took the second-half kickoff and unfurled a 17-play drive that consumed nearly nine minutes. Little ended the drive with an 11-yard TD and Matt Peacock's PAT made it 13-12.

Three plays later, Little forced a fumble and Williamstown drove eigth yards for another score on a 5-yard Chamberlin run. At that point, Williamstown had run 25 plays in the second half to 3 for TC.

"We looked at each other in the huddle before the start of the second half and said we need to take over the game," Chamberlin said.

Little played despite a groin injury that limited his effectiveness.

TC was without DT Greg Webb, who still is rehabbing from knee surgery.

Bryce Shade ran for one score and passed for another for TC. The Chargers used four quarterbacks, counting Shade in the Wildcat formation.
