A pair of Jeannette graduates led Lackawanna College (4-0) to a runaway victory.

Sophomore defensive back Robert Kennedy returned an interception 70 yards for a touchdown, and sophomore teammate Kareem Hall ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns in an 83-0 win over Erie Community College.

Hall, who transferred from Bowling Green, had 11 carries.

Kennedy’s stock is rising in the recruiting arena. He picked up an offer this week from St. Francis (Pa.), where another former Jeannette teammate, Gio Vonne Sanders, is a redshirt sophomore and a key defensive back.
