With Andrew Wright and Mike Dibble in the backfield, the Pembroke football team will keep defenders on their toes all season long.
Alexander had no answer for the two runners as the Dragons picked up an easy 56-13 win.
"We were fortunate to have Dibble and (Joe) Striegel last year," Pembroke coach Chip Foster said. "Now we add Andrew to the mix this year and we are liking that 1-2 punch. We will move Andrew around a little bit, but when you put them two in the backfield together, other teams don't really know what to do."
Wright's numbers were insane.
He only ran the ball eight times, but scored four touchdowns and finished with a whopping 165 yards.
Dibble had 10 touches, gaining 90 yards while getting in the end zone twice.
J.P. Phillips had 26 yards and a TD and David Kleckler went 2-of-3 passing for 110 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
The game was a rout early as Josh Hanel had an interception and returned it 42 yards to the Alexander 5-yard line to start the game. Wright had the touchdown run.
Ben Marion, Matt Phelps and Sam Martino also had interceptions and Pembroke led 56-0 at the half.
Ryan Piechocki had a 37-yard touchdown run for the Trojans, who fall to 0-2.
Pembroke is now 2-0 and rolling.
"After the kids work in the preseason and play two games, it is great to be 2-0," Foster said. "Everybody wants to be back in the playoffs and Class C is so competitive that we want to have a home game. That is the kid's goal and they are working hard towards it."
