Dillon combined for 109 total yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the Chesapeake Panthers to a 28-0 whitewash of the Wayne (W.Va.) Pioneers.

Dillon ran for 37 yards and caught three passes for 72 yards on the night. Two of his touchdowns came via the rush.

"Chris had a great game. We hope on offense to take advantage of what the defense gives us. Chris had a really solid ball game. We don’t care who scores as long as somebody scores," said Panthers coach Phil Davis.

Chesapeake, 2-0, racked up 322 total yards while limiting Wayne to 135, all on the ground.

"We executed pretty well on offense for a while, then we got a little sloppy and lost our intensity. Defensively, I think we picked up our intensity as the game went on," said Davis.

Dillon ran 12 yards for a touchdown with 6:57 left in the first quarter. Robbie Isaacs kicked the point after and it was 7-0.

Quarterback Andy Clark hit Dillon with a 51-yard touchdown pass just before the end of the quarter as the lead went to 14-0. Clark was 10 of 15 passing for 177 yards and an interception.

Josh Waugh returned a punt 41 yards to set up the next touchdown. Clark and Isaacs clicked on a fourth down pass to keep the drive alive, and then Dillon ran 11 yards for the touchdown and a 21-0 lead.

Waugh had a 21-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the third quarter to cap the scoring.

Noah Phillips had a fumble recovery for the Panthers.
