Washington High School lost their home opener to D.H. Conley, 27-0, Friday night at Wagner Stadium. The Pack (0-2) failed to score an offensive touchdown for the second straight week, while the 4A Vikings bounced back from a 60-13 loss at Wilmington Laney last week.

“We played better in the second half, but we still have a lot of work to do offensively,” said first year head coach Matt Taylor, who spent the last eight seasons as an assistant at Conley.

“We moved the ball well in the first half (seven first downs), but penalties at the worst possible time killed us,” Taylor said. “We will use our bye week to get things going in the right direction.

Conley senior receiver Isaiah Crumpler caught three touchdown passes, two in the first half for a 19-0 halftime lead. Crumpler, son of ECU standout Carlester Crumpler, will play for Rutgers next season.

Washington is off next week.
