D’Andre Webb ran for two touchdowns and the Chambersburg Cardinals used two special teams touchdowns and a defensive touchdown to pull away from the Lehigh Valley Storm 57-14 in the first round of the Gridiron Developmental Football League playoffs on Saturday at Mike Callas Stadium.

After Ukeen Riddick returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown to put Lehigh Valley (7-4) in front, the Cardinals (9-1) dominated — rolling up a 152-6 advantage in rushing yards and a 170-83 edge in passing yards.

Chambersburg will travel to face the Hampton Road Redskins (9-1) in the second round.

Webb rushed for 75 yards and touchdowns of 16 and 9 yards for the Cardinals. Bill Ashburn completed 13 of 23 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns — a 10-yarder to Ottis Lewis and a 33-yarder to Gary Stackfield.

Chambersburg’s defense and special teams contributed three touchdowns and a safety. David White returned a blocked punt 20 yards for a score, Atcheson Conway got the safety and scored on a 40-yard fumble return, and Jerell Jones took a punt 87 yards for a touchdown.

Anthony Roberts scored on a 4-yard run for the Cardinals.

Riddick added a 95-yard kickoff return for Lehigh Valley’s other score.
