“We ran the ball very nicely and threw when we had to,” said Phillips coach Leon Modeste. “Our offense was very out of sync last week. We just couldn’t get anything done. This week we really showed what we can do.”

Jumaane Ford also starred on the ground, rushing for 103 yards and a TD, while TOm Lane and Brandon Michel also had scores.
