Fort Hill wins physical battle against Morgantown, 16-7

CUMBERLAND, Md. — As Morgantown junior Preston Fox reflected on Friday night’s battle with Fort Hill inside Greenway Avenue Stadium, it didn’t take him long to describe his opponent’s playing style.
“They hit hard,” he said. “They laid it on us very hard.”
Few words could more accurately describe the action in Cumberland as the Mohigans (1-2) were, despite a size and numbers advantage, physically dominated as they fell 16-7 to the Sentinels with the help of three Danny King field goals.
“They dominated us. They were technicians,” Morgantown coach Matt Lacy said. “They kicked us out, and they ran straight up the field at us all night.”
The Sentinels outgained the Mohigans 421-261 in total yardage, with 410 coming on the ground behind a 200-yard performance from Carter Swann. Morgantown seemed defeated in the trenches, unable to gain control of the line of scrimmage for more than brief moments.
