Already matching their win total of 4 from 2015, the Meteors of DeLaSalle came into Friday's game vs. the Spartans of St. Francis riding high.

St. Francis lost 39-6 in Wheaton.


DeLaSalle got on the scoreboard early when defensive lineman Ebrima Njie picked up a fumble in the St. Francis red zone and ran it in for a touchdown.

On the next drive for the Meteors, senior Devin Michicich plunged into the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown run putting the Meteors up 12-0. Michicich added another score a few drives later on a fourth-and-long play.

Michicich had a big day on the ground running in 2 touchdowns while adding a third on the screen pass. He shouldered the load for the Meteors with 48 yards on 11 carries good for 2 touchdowns while adding one catch for 20 yards and a touchdown.

Michicich's second score put DeLaSalle up 19-0 and it seemed as if this game was getting out of hand early in favor of DeLaSalle.

St. Francis, however, was not calling it quits. St. Francis drove the field on the following drive and cut into the deficit with a great contested touchdown reception by junior Sidney Moore making the score 19-6 at halftime.

DeLaSalle put up 19 points in the first half, but its offense did not look at the top of its game as quarterback Dorian Woods completed only 3 of 9 passes for 50 yards and no touchdowns.

"I thought we started off slow," DeLaSalle coach Mike Boehm said. "They showed us some stuff we hadn't seen on film, but we adjusted and we did OK. I was very happy with the way our defense played today. Offensively, our line was tremendous."
