Shemory became the first Warrior to rush for four touchdowns in a game since Blake Bowman did it against FDU-Florham in 2015, as he plowed in from seven yards out in the first quarter, one-yard out in the second, 48 yards in the third and four yards out in the fourth. He finished 16-of-24 passing for 201 yards and two more scores, tossing a 67-yard touchdown and a 21-yard one.

Lycoming (3-5 overall, 2-4 MAC) piled up 543 yards of total offense, their second straight game above 500, as they ran for 342 yards on 55 carries, led by Shemory’s 114 yards.

Shemory is Lycoming second offensive player of the week this season, joining fellow sophomore quarterback Chase Snavely (Middletown, Pa./Middletown), who earned the award for his role in a 42-41 comeback win over Widener.
