King's Wins 2009 Mayor's Cup
Despite erroneously being touted as underdogs by Times Leader sportswriters, the King's College football team whipped Wilkes University 33-16 on a misty Saturday afternoon. King's quarterback Corey Lavin looked like a combination of Brett Favre and Micheal Vick as he scrambled, split Wilkes's coverages with his passes, and broke several big runs. On one 2nd half run, he appeared to be sacked for a loss but broke free and eluded several defenders for a 40+ yard gain.
Notwithstanding Lavin's accomplishments, the game was a total team effort as King's offensive line drove Wilkes defenders off the line of scrimmage to spur RB Cluade O'Connor for 167 yards. LB Alex Watty picked off the Wilkes QB in the second half to seal the deal. It was evident that King's wanted the game more as they left everything on the field.
