Lawrence runs for 257 yards, 5 TDs for Sachem North


Davon Lawrence rushed for 257 yards on 11 carries and scored a career-high five touchdowns to lead Sachem North to a 47-7 win over Commack in Division I Saturday.

"From the second time he touched the ball, I knew Lawrence was going to have a big day," Sachem North coach Dave Falco said. "He's an excellent athlete ... big, fast, strong. . . and give credit to the offensive line and line coach Nick Codispoti. They really have come together as a group. In 8 games we have rushed for over 2500 yards"

Lawrence, a 6-2, 210-pound senior, is a force on the gridiron and "not easy to take down," Falco said.

Sachem North (8-0) took first place in its division for the first time since 2000. Jesse Scanna and Mike Andreassi made 10 tackles apiece for the Flaming Arrows.

"We're going to put this behind us," Falco said. "A new season starts tomorrow. Everyone is 0-0 and everything we did before doesn't matter. We will survive and advance or lose and go home."
