STONEBORO, Pa. – Eisenhower held the Sailors’ leading rusher in check, while the Knights ran for over 200 yards themselves, in a 35-13 win at Lakeview on Friday.

Lakeview’s (3-2) Mitchell Tingley came into the game averaging nearly 95 yards per game on the ground, and 6.5 yards per carry. The Knights (5-0) limited Tingley to just 3.5 ypc and 56 yards on the ground.

Meanwhile, Eisenhower’s Benji Bauer picked up right where he left off a week ago. Bauer ran for 152 yards and two touchdowns and added a pair of 2-point conversion runs as well.

Tucker Lindell ran for 69 yards and a score, and Shawn Pascuzzi added 43 rushing yards and a TD. Pascuzzi was 3-7 passing for 80 yards. Wyatt Lookenhouse had all three of Pascuzzi’s completions.

Though he had just two carries for five yards, Keegan Eckstrom had an 80-yard kickoff return touchdown to help the Knights’ cause.

Cameron Pence had a hand in both Lakeview scores. He ran three times for 11 yards and a TD and was 4-7 passing for 157 yards and a score. Danick Hinkson had all four receptions for the Sailors.

Eisenhower will have a stiff challenge next week when the Knights welcome Mercyhurst Prep to the Pasture of Pain.
