Dennis-Yarmouth put on quite a show for homecoming.
The Dolphin defense stymied star tailback Gates Kelliher and the Falmouth attack, allowing just one first down in the first three quarters on the way to a dominant 42-6 Atlantic Coast League win on Friday night.
Senior quarterback Jacob McCarthy was on target all night, completing eight of his 15 passes for 185 yards and three touchdowns.
“We saw man-to-man man coverage across the board,” said McCarthy, who directed a 425-yard attack for 5-0 D-Y.
“I have trust in all of my receivers that if it’s man, they can beat their guy, and they did just that.”
Junior Daryan Thompson was a force. He hauled in four catches for 81 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown catch, and had a pair of inteceptions.
Kelliher managed just 15 yards on six carries before leaving the game for good in the second quarter with an undisclosed injury..
With two minutes left in the first quarter, McCarthy connected with freshman Geoffrey Jamiel on a corner route for a 24-yd touchdown pass, the eighth TD of the season the first year. Senior Sam Capobianco’s extra point, the first of six in the game, made it 7-0 D-Y.
After McCarthy’s scoring toss to Thompson late in the half, the Dolphins recovered an onside kick at the Falmouth 42. Four plays later, McCarthy hit senior Joe Tierney for a 37-yard score for a 21-0 cushion at halftime.
Despite forcing two early turnovers, the Clippers (3-2) failed to capitalize, going three and out on the ensuing drives.
Early in the fourth quarter, Bobby Evans took it in from 4 yards out for 28-0. Three minutes later, he sprinted 42 yards, untouched, and a 35-0 margin.
Falmouth’s lone touchdown came with four minutes left, on a 10-yard run from sophomore QB Kyle Connolly. Payton Doyle wrapped it up with a 55-yard scoring run.
That score was quickly answered by Dolphins junior Payton Doyle, whose 55-yd touchdown run just a minute later made the score 42-6.
“We played fast,” said Dennis-Yarmouth coach Paul Funk. “That’s what we worked on all week, and we really got it done tonight.”
