Damion Samuels scored three touchdowns, runs of 28 and 5 yards and a 94-yard kickoff return, to send host Frankford to a 25-14 victory over previously unbeaten George Washington on Friday in a Public League Gold Division football showdown.

Quarterback Tim DiGiorgio ran 3 yards to cap the scoring for the Pioneers, who got a measure of revenge for last year’s Public League final, in which Washington prevailed, 20-13.

Frankford improved to 4-2 overall, 3-0 in the division. Washington fell to 5-1 and 2-1.

Samuels propelled the Pioneers to a 13-0 lead in the first quarter with his two rushing touchdowns. Donald Smith scored on a 1-yard run for Washington later in the quarter to trim the lead to 13-7.

After a scoreless second period, Samuels took the second-half kickoff to the end zone, putting Frankford ahead by 19-7.

Marquis Edwards’ 4-yard run cut the deficit to 19-14.

DiGiorgio, returning from a week off because of an injury, was 6-for-14 passing for 99 yards. Samuels finished with 15 carries for 77 yards.
