MIDDLEBURY — It was muddy, windy and rainy, but a Goshen found a ray of hope in Chunie Pung.
Pung slashed his way for 162 yards and three touchdowns as the Redskins kept Northridge winless with a 28-0 victory Friday night.
Pung’s yardage accounted for more than two-thirds of Goshen’s offense and his 162 on the ground was 45 more yards than the Raiders gained total.
“Chunie ran hard, but I thought our line blocked well,’’ said GHS coach Mike Cheviron. “Teams have to make a decision on how they’re gonna take us and guard us on the outside. They overloaded so we ran the backside and when they didn’t, that was Chunie running on the frontside and we blocked it with the fullback.”
Pung scored on runs of 15, 4 and 14 yards after Casey Looker opened the game with a 15-yard TD dash in the first quarter.
Goshen improved to 2-5 while Northridge (0-7), which has lost 10 straight regular-season games, managed just one second-half first down.
“I feel like we’re making progress, then we take two steps forward and take a step back. I thought we took a step back, especially offensively,’’ said Jon Kirkton, the Raiders’ coach. “I thought the defense played really well.”
