It couldn't have started off worse for Moorestown football Friday night, with a fumble on the first play from scrimmage and three turnovers, including two interceptions, by the end of the half.
But it couldn't have ended much better, as the Quakers reeled off 41 unanswered points to avenge an upset loss last year and pull off an upset of their own, beating Cherry Hill West, 41-13, on the road.
Down 13-0 at halftime, Moorestown stormed out of the gate in the third quarter, forcing a pair of three-and-outs on defense and getting a nine-yard rushing touchdown from Anthony Williamson and a 53-yard punt return from Tyreek Robinson to take a 14-13 lead.
Robinson's 20-yard touchdown as time expired in the third gave the Quakers the lead they'd never relinquish, but the offense wasn't done.
After a 57-yard run from Williamson took Moorestown inside West's 5-yard line, the Quakers scored again on a quarterback sneak by Mike DiMarino to push it to 27-13.
Despite giving the Lions absurd field position on the ensuing drive—a penalty on the kick return gave West the ball with a 26-yard field—the Quakers found a way, getting a 97-yard interception return from Quinton Law to put the game completely out of reach.
Nick Lucidi would score on a four-yard run with less than a minute to go in the fourth quarter to finish off Moorestown's effort on the night.
The win moves the Quakers to 3-4 on the season and snaps a two-game losing streak.
