"We've been using those two offensives modes all year but tonight we had a few matchup problems. They are a big football team and we wanted to keep pounding but we couldn't stay in that formation running with Chris," said Generals coach Craig Snyder. "They are a very well-coached football team but I'm proud of my guys and how we held up."
After some defensive adjustments, the Redskins dominated the second quarter scoring three unanswered touchdowns on passes, a second one to Pate from 32 yards out and two to Sorsaia from 18 and 3 yards.
The second half continued with more dominating passing from Hensley and a stronger rushing attack from the Redskins as Hensley scored from 5 yards and a hard-running Caperton Humphrey blasted in from a yard out.
The Redskins, ranked No. 19 in latest SSAC AAA ratings, need at least one more victory against either Capital or Spring Valley to have a chance of making the postseason field.
"We played a little bit vanilla tonight,'' Taylor said, "and I'll admit, too, that there were times in the second half when we were thinking ahead to the next game with Capital. And I'm sure they will be tough next week and wanting some revenge.''
The Generals (3-5) still have games left with St. Albans and No. 1 Huntington.
For the Redskins, Hensley finished 17 of 27 for 261 yards while Pate caught nine for 196 yards, and Sorsaia added 47 yards on five catches with two touchdowns.
For the Generals, Turner turned in 161 yards on 18 carries.
