Winless Henderson overtaken by Owen J. Roberts (with boxscore)

BUCKTOWN – West Chester Henderson was unable to sustain a second-half lead in dropping a 26-14 nonleague decision to Owen J. Roberts Friday night at Henry J. Bernat Field.

The winless Warriors (0-3) held a 14-6 advantage in the third quarter after CJ Preston’s 7-yard TD run – a score that was set up by Ian Tracy’s 36-yard reception. Tracy finished with 6 catches for 86 yards to spark a meager attack that turned the ball over twice and managed just 158 total yards.

The host Wildcats responded with a 9-play, 75-yard march that was capped by junior Marcus Martin’s 5-yard run to close the gap to 14-12.

OJR (3-0) then took the lead for good on QB Dawson Stuart’s one-yard TD run at the end of an 8-play, 53-yard drive with 6:43 left before closing things out on a 31-yard TD run by Sean Praweckyj. Praweckyj, who also caught a 16-yard TD pass from Stuart in the second quarter, later put an exclamation point on his great performance with an interception in the end zone at the wire.

Warriors QB Joe Saulino, who opened the scoring with a 5-yard TD run in the first quarter, accounted for 135 yards (97 passing, 38 passing) from scrimmage and both touchdowns in the loss.
