Wilson’s non-league football game against Cheltenham at West Lawn was suspended Saturday night due to intense storms and will resume on Monday at 4 p.m.
The Bulldogs (0-2) hold a 26-0 lead with 8:02 remaining in the second quarter. The game, which was scheduled to be start at 6 p.m., was delayed for 45 minutes before kickoff due to lightning.
Playing his first snaps of the season, senior wide receiver Edison Case caught two touchdown passes and had 156 yards on four catches, all in the first quarter, to help Wilson establish an early lead.
Case took his first catch of the night, a deep slant over the middle, for 74 yards to open the scoring with 7:38 remaining in the first quarter. Tommy Hunsicker scored a 7-yard rushing touchdown to make it 14-0 a few minutes later to cap an eight-play 60-yard drive.
After a fumble by Cheltenham quarterback Jonathan Ingram on the first play of the ensuing drive gave the ball right back to the Bulldogs, Hunsicker connected with Case for a 34-yard touchdown. The two-point conversion run following the score failed.
Wilson then recovered an onside kick and Case’s fourth catch of the night, a 30-yarder, set up a 4-yard touchdown run by Nick Fiorini with 1:27 left in the first quarter.
The Panthers had 67 yards (minus-3 rushing, 70 passing), while Wilson had 199 (189 passing, 10 rushing). Hunsicker was 9-of-10 passing for 189 yards.
The Bulldogs were scheduled to play Martin Luther King Friday at Benjamin L. Johnston Stadium in Philadelphia at 7 p.m., but that game was canceled Wednesday when the Philadelphia Public League opted to not play its Thursday and Friday games due to this week’s heat wave.
Cheltenham (1-1) was scheduled to host Abraham Lincoln, also a Public League member, Friday.
