WILLIAMSPORT — The Loyalsock Lancers busted out of the gate with 21 first-quarter points to roll to a 53-14 Heartland-II victory over Milton on Friday.

First, Chase Cavanaugh hooked up with Rees Watkins for a 65-yard touchdown pass before Davion Hill and Joeb Schurer ran for scores of 6 and 10 yards, respectively, for Loyalsock (5-3, 3-1 HAC-II).

The Lancers then got a 37-yard field goal from Brady Dowell to start the second quarter.

That was followed by Eli Gair’s 35-yard interception return for a touchdown, plus a 20-yard scoring strike from Cavanaugh to Watkins to make the score 38-0 at the half.

Milton (0-8, 0-5) got on the board in the fourth quarter by getting a 43-yard touchdown pass from Ethan Rowe to Kenley Caputo, along with a 32-yard touchdown run by Tyler Boyer.
