Steven Laurino completed 22 of 35 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown, but LIU Post lost, 41-6, Saturday to West Chester in PSAC East football.

Mike Mattei threw for 263 yards and four touchdowns to lead West Chester, which scored 34 unanswered points from the second quarter on.

Anthony Brunetti ran for 49 yards on 14 carries and Jeff Mack had 33 yards on six carries for Post (2-4). The Pioneers couldn't capitalize on their 326 total yards, nor could they contain West Chester's explosive offense

Rondell White had six catches for 176 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 167 yards and a score for the Rams (5-2).

Laurino's 13-yard TD pass to Brunetti pulled Post within 7-6 with 13:32 left in the second quarter, but West Chester went on a tear late in the quarter and scored its final TD on an 89-yard pass from Mattei to White with 3:03 left in the game.

Post's Joe Botti had five catches for 85 yards, and Grayson Laurino had six receptions for 37 yards. Defensive back Evan Flowers made 18 tackles and Rob Bright had nine for the Pioneers.

The Pioneers, who have lost four straight, will host Millersville at 1 p.m. Saturday.
