Lee leads Wolverines to 54-6 NJAC road romp over Kean

E.J. Lee

UNION, N.J. — Wesley College couldn’t do anything to change the result of last weekend’s tough one-point loss to Frostburg State.
So the Wolverines did the only they could do.

No. 7 Wesley got back on the winning track by dumping Kean, 54-6, in a New Jersey Athletic Conference football game on Saturday afternoon.

Junior E.J. Lee ran for 117 yards and scored three touchdowns as the Wolverines (4-1 NJAC, 5-1 overall) dispatched the Cougars (1-4 NJAC, 1-5 overall) for the fourth straight year.

Lee scored on runs of four and 28 yards while also catching a 40-yard TD pass from quarterback Khaaliq Burroughs. Wesley led 35-6 at halftime.

The Wolverines finished with commanding advantages of 551-190 in total yards and 30-10 in first downs.

Receiver Ruhann Peele finished with 104 yards and a pair of TD catches on seven receptions with Alex Kemp adding 62 yards on four receptions.

Burroughs completed 21-of-27 passes for 312 yards and three touchdowns with an interception.

Five different players scored for the Wolverines. That included offensive lineman Devin Miller (Cape Henlopen), who recovered a first-quarter fumble in the end zone for Wesley’s first touchdown.

Shawny’e Jones then added the Wolverines’ last TD on a 12-yard interception with 13:57 remaining in the contest.

Defensive back Coray Williams collected a team-high seven tackles and an interception to pace the Wolverines’ defense.

Wesley returns to action next Saturday with a 2 p.m. NJAC game at Rowan.
