If you just looked at the boxscore, Brandon McIlwain's numbers Friday night might lead you to believe he's an elite running back for Council Rock North.
However, you'd be slightly mistaken.
The senior quarterback, a South Carolina recruit, rushed for five touchdowns and threw for another to lead the visiting Indians to a 41-31 win over Quakertown in a Suburban One Continental game.
"We knew [Quakertown] was a very fundamentally sound team," Council Rock North coach Adam Collachi said. "But McIlwain did exactly what he needed to do, and so did our offensive line with their blocking."
Yet the road to beating Quakertown (8-1), the 10th-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania, was not a smooth drive.
With just under three minutes remaining in the third quarter and the Indians (6-3) trailing 24-20, McIlwain sprinted 6 yards for the go-ahead touchdown.
McIlwain rushed for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
Rob Burns rushed for a pair of TDs for Quakertown.
