MONTROSE – Not even a long bus ride to almost the New York border could slow down Lake-Lehman.

Quite frankly, nothing could stop the Black Knights on this night.

Joey Vigil ran for 160 yards and three touchdowns in the first half, and Lake-Lehman’s defense held Montrose to negative yardage through the first three quarters as the Black Knights rolled, 60-0, in non-conference football game.

As for a letdown after a tough loss to Old Forge in Week 1, think twice. Lehman (1-1) jumped out to a 21-0 lead after one quarter and led 41-0 at halftime.

“We did a nice job of mixing up the runs, and throwing the ball, too,” Lehman head coach Jerry Gilsky said. “It was a tough loss to Old Forge and it’s hard to open the season in the loss column, but the kids came back to practice and we moved on. On offense, you don’t want to live and die with one player. That’s why we want multiple guys to touch the ball. We are confident in all of our backs. It makes it really tough for the defense to key on just one guy.”

For Vigil, it was a breakout performance for the promising back.

He scored on three straight touches in the second quarter, reaching paydirt on runs of 44, 40 and 13 yards.

If there were any nerves for the young back, they were quickly dashed aside as the Meteors couldn’t contain him around the corner of a physical offensive line that pushed Montrose all around the field.

“Our line is just so big and physical. The holes they opened up for me were amazing. They deserve so much of the credit,” Vigil said. “Without them, I couldn’t get the yards.”

He finished with 160 yards on just seven first-half carries.

“We had a real tough week of practice to prepare for this game,” Vigil said. “Everyone was real serious, and determined to get back on track. Myself, I’m happy. I feel great.”

The Black Knights finished with 485 yards of offense – 425 on the ground.
