Detroit — Romelo Ross had a game to remember Thursday night as Detroit Western International defeated Detroit Communication and Media Arts, 35-0.

Ross accounted for four of Western’s touchdowns, on both sides of the ball.

On Western’s first play from scrimmage, Ross took a handoff, ran the outside and went 65 yards for a touchdown.

Western stopped CMA’s first drive, and on its next drive, Ross again found the end zone.

Ross gave Western its third score when he ran an interception back 43 yards for a touchdown.

“He’s just got vision, he finds a hole and hits it,” Western coach Andre Harlan said of Ross. “He just plays a consistent game.”

Ross, a Central Michigan University commit, added a touchdown in the second half, and finished with 193 yards on 13 carries.

Khalil Banks scored the final touchdown for Western (4-4) on a 1-yard run.
