Cameron Hammond broke free for two long runs in the fourth quarter last Friday night to put the finishing touches on Middlesex’s 37-0 win over Lancaster in varsity football.

Hammond scored on a 41-yard run to start the fourth and went 67 yards for a touchdown midway through the quarter. He rushed five times for 175 yards, three times as many yards as Lancaster’s entire offense.

Penalties continued to be a problem. Lancaster was flagged seven times for 55 yards and had a 74-yard Branndonn Wade kickoff return for a score negated on a defensive block in the back call.

The Chargers had 239 yards of offense, while Lancaster managed only 47 yards total with 48 on the ground and minus 1 in the air…[to-view-more]
