Kammel leads Phoenix past IV

PHOENIX — Chris Kammel ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more as Phoenix rolled to a 61-14 homecoming victory against Illinois Valley in Skyline Conference football at Jack Woodward Stadium Friday.

Kammel, a senior quarterback, engineered the Pirates to a 55-0 lead at halftime.

Phoenix rushed for 278 yards and added 133 through the air.

Running backs Matt Lapat and Jason Adams each scored two touchdowns. Lapat paced the Pirates' ground attack with 114 yards on seven carries, while Adams chipped in 63 yards on eight rushes.

Kammel, who gained 93 yards on the ground, opened the scoring with a 5-yard TD run in the first quarter. Lapat and Adams also scored in the opening period as Phoenix jumped to a 21-0 lead.

Skyler Reagan hauled in a 59-yard scoring pass from Kammel for the first of five Phoenix TDs in the second period. Lapat then broke loose for a 57-yard TD run.

"Our offensive line was awesome tonight," Phoenix first-year coach Toby Walker said. "Lapat had some huge holes to run through. He's got the burst of speed that he can get into the secondary pretty fast."

Illinois Valley was limited to 112 yards in offense and five first downs. The Cougars completed seven passes for just 3 yards.

"Defensively our up-front guys had good pressure," said Walker, "and we had tight coverage downfield. They run a lot of different offensive and defensive sets that are uncommon. Our kids picked up the checks that were necessary."
