FOSTORIA - Downriver ran downhill all night, and almost always over St. Wendelin.
Jacob Gorman and Kyle Johnson each ran for a touchdown and more than 140 yards, and Johnson added a TD pass Saturday as Downriver spoiled St. Wendelin's homecoming with a 55-14 victory.
Gorman scored on an 8-yard run en route to 153 yards on 17 carries for the Wolfpack, and Johnson ran in from 5 yards out in the second period on his way to 11 rushes for 145 yards as part his team's 481-yard ground attack.
Johnson's touchdown pass covered 18 yards to Mitchell Bezeau in a back-and-fourth third quarter.
St. Wendelin got that period off to a rousing start when Austin Reinhart sprinted yards on the half's first play, then bulled in from a yard out two snaps later.
Downriver answered with the Johnson-to-Bezeau connection with 8:51 left, but Reinhart returned the ensuing kickoff 67 yards for another touchdown.
