Photos: Moorestown Football Falls to Cherry Hill West

The Quakers score first Friday night, but the Lions had all the offense in the second half.

It was a tale of two halves for Moorestown football Friday night.

In one, the Quakers were toe-to-toe with upstart Cherry Hill West, drawing first blood on a Sidney Ruffin touchdown run and threatening on other drives.

In the other, the offense disappeared entirely.

It was that second half, where the Quakers ran just 13 plays in 24 minutes, that decided it, as the Lions pulled away with a fourth-quarter field goal and touchdown in the 16-7 Moorestown loss.

It was the second time this season Moorestown's been upset by a visiting Cherry Hill team—the East Cougars shocked the then-undefeated Quakers with a late safety in a 26-25 win.

The loss drops Moorestown to 4-3 on the season and could potentially knock the Quakers out of a first-round home playoff game. Moorestown was third in South Jersey, Group 4 power points after beating Camden last week, but two of the teams just behind it—Clearview and Hammonton—each won Friday night.
