MILFORD — Throwing or running, Delaware Valley gained yards in bunches.
The third-ranked Warriors piled up more than 500 yards of offense to roll to a 43-7 win over Scranton in a Division I game at Warrior Stadium on Friday.
Matt Cavallaro threw for 230 yards and four touchdowns for the Warriors (5-2 overall, 1-0 Division I) and Ryan Obiso ran for 189 yards and a score to pace the offense.
Obiso averaged nearly 10 yards per carry, allowing Cavallaro and his talented receivers to carve up the defense with play-action passing.
“I think that’s a big part of our game,” Cavallaro said. “We’ve been running the ball really well. Being able to run the ball like that definitely opens things up in the air. When you go play action they have to respect the run and we can find some seams downfield.”
The Warriors’ first drive covered 73 yards in eight plays. Cavallaro hit Trevor Smith for a 23-yard touchdown pass to give Delaware Valley a 6-0 lead.
After forcing a punt, Delaware Valley took over at its 49. Obiso carried three times on the six-play drive and scored on a 1-yard run to push the lead to 14-0 after a two-point conversion.
“I thought our offensive line played extremely well,” Delaware Valley coach Keith Olsommer said. “I thought the guys came off the ball and were getting to the second level and Ryan was getting through. He ran the ball hard. He’s a tough kid.”
After forcing another punt, Delaware Valley took over at the Scranton 49. On the first play, Cavallaro hit Dylan Kelly in stride downfield for a 49-yard touchdown.
“All of our receivers can make plays like that,” Cavallaro said. “They can either burn you downfield or stop one on you and make a couple of moves and get some big yards. It’s great for us to have receivers who can make plays like that.”
On the Warriors’ next drive, they converted a fourth-and-8 when Obiso ran the ball for 30 yards on a fake punt. Cavallaro hit Tyler Smith for a 9-yard touchdown pass and a 29-0 lead.
Scranton (3-5 overall, 0-1 Division I) broke through on its next possession, when Rheyse Green ran 58 yards for a score. But Delaware Valley answered on its next drive when Cavallaro connected with Trevor Smith for a 24-yard touchdown pass and the Warriors led, 36-7, at halftime.
Cavallaro finished 12 of 22 passing and hit six receivers. Kelly had 105 yards receiving and a touchdown and Trevor Smith had 55 yards receiving and two scores
