DOVER — Called on to move from receiver to quarterback, Timberlane senior Ethan Stewart delivered in a big way on Saturday.

In his first varsity action at QB, Stewart ran for 104 yards and threw a touchdown, while running back Dominic Pallaria added a career-high 108 yards and three 3-yard touchdowns as Timberlane surged to a 37-7 victory over St. Thomas.

The win was the second straight for Timberlane (2-1), after snapping a 14-game losing streak last week.

"It was a good overall win," said Fitzgerald. "For the second straight week, we were able to control the game with our rushing attack. Our offensive line did a great job, and our backs did a good job of running in space."

Stewart, who normally starts at slot receiver and defensive back and returns kicks, needed just seven carries to break 100 rushing yards. He also threw an 8-yard TD to Robert Olson.

"Stewart played well at quarterback tonight," said Fitzgerald. "Some of his yards came on designed runs, while others came on scrambles. He bailed us out with some big first downs.

"And Dom is a workhorse at running back. He's strong and has good vision running the ball."

Timberlane' defense was led by Evan Roeger, who excelled at nose guard and scooped up a fumble and ran it 20 yards for the Owls' last touchdown of the day. Cooper Kelley also excelled at linebacker.

The Owls will look for their third straight win when they travel to Hollis-Brookline (1-2), which beat Sanborn on Saturday.
