Long runs rally Lake-Lehman

Lake-Lehman’s often struggling offense came up with the game’s two longest plays Friday night.

The Black Knights used one long run to set up a touchdown and another to take advantage of a big special teams play while rallying past host Tunkhannock, 14-7, in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 football game.

Landon Schuckers scored both touchdowns as Lake-Lehman, the lowest-scoring team in District 2, picked up its second win. The Black Knights improved to 2-1 in the division and 2-4 overall.

Tunkhannock lost its fourth straight and fell to 1-3 and 1-5.

The Tigers opened the game with a 23-play drive, resulting in a Ben Chilson 1-yard touchdown for a 7-0 lead that held up for half the game.

Those were the last points the Black Knights allowed.

Javon Borger broke a 60-yard run to set up the first Schuckers touchdown to tie the game, 7-7, late in the third quarter.

Lake-Lehman forced a punt that Shuckers blocked, giving the Black Knights the ball at midfield.

Schuckers scored from there on the next play, producing the winning 50-yard touchdown with 10:56 left.
