DELCO TIMES:  Fitzsimons comes up big

RADNOR - As Radnor looked to christen its new, synthetic playing surface Friday night at Provost Field, the Red Raiders were stunned when Terance Fitzsimmons opened the game with a 91-yard kick return for a touchdown. It would be the first of four scores that Fitzsimmons would lay on the Red Raiders in The Haverford School's 46-21 romp.

The Fords scored early and often with Fitzsimmons leading the way. He chalked up three touchdowns in the first quarter alone, giving the Fords a 19-point lead entering the second quarter.  Fitzsimmons talked about how his team wanted to send a message this season by working hard and finishing plays. "Last year on one of those (returns), I got caught on the 3-yard line," Fitzsimmons said. That's nothing but a distant memory now.

The Raiders were able to get on the board in the second quarter, as quarterback Tyler Andersen connected with Derrick Adger for a 61-yard scoring strike. Ian Watts kicked the extra point to cut Haverford School's lead to 19-7.  That would be Radnor's only points in the first half. The Fords scored twice more, on a 57-yard Carl Walrath touchdown run and a Dan Judge strike to Joe Nassib that gave the Fords a 33-7 lead at the half.

In the second half, it was more of the same. Although Radnor put two touchdowns on the board on a four-yard run by Robert McCurdy and a 10-yard pass from Robert Collins to John Coleman, it was never close.  Fitzsimmons added another touchdown on a 73-yard run and Michael Washington put the nail in the coffin with a 70-yard interception return.
