FOOTBALL: Highland 19, Deptford 10

With football teams many teams going to sophisticated passing attacks, there is still room for the run. Highland proved that with today’s 19-10 win over Deptford in a Tri-County Royal Division game.

The Tartans passed for just 11 yards, but had two players escape the century mark on the ground. Sean Daniels, the 6-foot-2, 219-pound senior with both power and speed gained 159 yards on 25 carries and scored on TD runs of 1 and 12 yards

Senior Terell Lane added 132 yards on 12 carries, including a 79-yard TD run early in the third quarter.

Lane is extremely dangerous when he bursts to the outside.

Highland (2-2) is among the most improved teams in South Jersey after going 1-9 last year.

The ground game is only part of the reason for the turnaround under first-year coach Craig Stinson. The Tartans also have some big-play performers on defense, including Derrell Lane, the twin off Terell, who had a key interception from his free safety position.

Highland has enjoyed the recent edge over Deptford with three wins in a row over the Spartans. Last year Highland beat Deptford, 14-10 and in 2007 the Tartans won 21-7.

These have been low scoring-competitive games, dominated by the respective running games.

Deptford 3 0 7 0 – 10

D: Samantha Dimitri 21 FG
