Thursday’s Game

Bishop McDevitt 68, Palmyra 7

Fresh off a stunning late game victory over Donegal, the Palmyra Cougars were served up their toughest test of the season: A road game at Bishop McDevitt.  The Crusaders entered the game with 3-0 record to match their state title dreams, especially after having beaten the defending New Jersey Non-Public Champions.  Their roster is stacked with talent, including Stone Saunders, the 2022 Pennsylvania Gatorade Player of the Year and University of Kentucky commit.  So, yes, this is a tough draw for any team within the Mid Penn Keystone.  About the game, Palmyra’s Coach Pavone, “We knew coming in that in order to stay with a team the caliber of Bishop McDevitt for four quarter, we would have to be sound in all facets and play a lot of mistake free football.”

McDevitt did not disappoint as they hit the field against Palmyra and built a 48-0 lead by halftime, forcing several errors from the orange and black.  “We simply made too many mistakes against an excellent football team who will capitalize upon every opportunity,” Pavone said.

While the game was out of reach, the Cougars kept clawing and finally broke through in the 3rd quarter when Braxtin Risser carried the ball 70 yards for a score.  Matt Bordner kicked home the extra point. “In situations like that when games get out of hand, you can see quit, but our kids on all levels kept after it,” the 2nd year Head Coach explained of his team’s efforts.

In the end that was the only time that Palmyra would light up the scoreboard.  With the loss, the Cougars are now 2-2 on the season.

The Palmyra coaches and players will now deconstruct the game film in hopes that they can use this loss as a learning experience to make them stronger over the final six regular season games.

Coach Pavone wrapped up his post-game thoughts by saying, “Ultimately, I’m proud of our continued fight. This was one game and it doesn’t define who we are as a football program and the growth we continue to see each day.”

Friday’s Games


ELCO 28, Conrad Weiser 21

ELCO entered their Section 4 opener at home against Conrad Weiser.  Last year, the Scouts pulled out a stunning victory over the Raiders when they scored in the closing moments of the game.  This was still very much in the memories of the ELCO coaching staff and its veteran players.

The first score of this one came with under a minute left in the 1st quarter, when QB Steve Rosado was able to punch it in on keeper from the 1-yard line.  With just under eight minutes left in the 1st half, Conrad Weiser would knot the game at 7-7.

Less than two minutes later, Jake Williams broke his first big run of the night, a 58-yarder for his 15th rushing touchdown of the season.  This would give ELCO a 14-7 lead going into the locker room at halftime.

In recent history, these two teams have played each other very tight. This contest would not be an exception and Weiser tied it up at 14 with Evan Rittle’s 2nd touchdown reception of the evening in the closing seconds of the 3rd quarter.

Under two minutes into the 4th quarter, Williams again broke free and scored on a 47-yard run to give the Raiders a 21-14 lead. Four minutes later, Weiser responded to tie the game yet again.

ELCO would then drive down the field, reaching the 2-yard line with just under two minutes left.  In what was seemingly a strategic move, the Raiders ran two plays and intentionally did not score.  By the time the QB Steve Rosado made it in the end zone to take a 28-21 lead, there was 1:00 on the clock and Weiser was out of timeouts.  The ELCO defense then held, denying the visiting Scouts a miracle victory.  The win moved ELCO to 4-0.

Muhlenberg 13, Lebanon 7

Lebanon and Muhlenberg both entered their game at Alumni Stadium, each with hopes of their 1st win of the season.  The Cedars were especially hopeful, as they are currently riding a 25-game losing streak.  Unfortunately, events prior to the game sidelined the starting Lebanon quarterback, meaning that winning would be an uphill climb for Lebanon.

Muhlenberg got on the board in the 1st quarter, connecting on a 30-yard pass play to take a 7-0 lead.  The Cedars responded in the 2ndquarter when junior running back Kai Rivera punched it in from the 1-yard line. A Derek Infante extra point tied the game up going into halftime.

With ten minutes remaining in the game, Muhlenberg against scored on a quarterback keeper. After a missed extra point, Muhlenberg led 13-7. Throughout the 2nd half, Lebanon would put together some nice drives led by quarterback Paul Trace, but were unable to convert those drives into points. After a strong defensive stand late in the 4th, an interception ended their hopes of a comeback.  While they competed hard in the face of adversity, the loss dropped the Cedars to 0-4 on the season.

Annville-Cleona 28, Hamburg 7

Annville-Cleona entered their Section 5 opener at Hamburg with hopes of righting their ship following losses to ELCO and Littlestown.  The Dutchmen came out of the gate, showing that defensively they seemed stronger than they looked in recent weeks.  Unfortunately, despite long drives, the Annville offense could not find the end zone. The 1st quarter ended with goose eggs on the scoreboard.

With just over five minutes left in the 1st half, Cam Connelly founds Jon Shay on a 31-yard touchdown pass.  This throw, only the 2nd of the night, gave AC a 7-0 lead.  Harter found the end zone again four minutes later, this time on a 4-yard run.  Hamburg struck quickly in a hurry-up situation, scoring with just seconds left in the 2nd quarter. The Dutchmen entered halftime with a 14-7 lead.

In the 3rd quarter, Connelly scored from 3 yards out on a quarterback keeper.  Following another successful extra point by kicker Mina Elzek, Annville held a 21-7 lead with 6:06 left in the 3rd.

Just four seconds into the 4th quarter, running back Bryce Keller scored on a 6-yard run.  This scoring play gave Annville-Cleona a 28-7 lead, which they would hold onto for the final minutes of the game.  With the win, Annville 2-2 overall and picked up a key victory to start their Section 5 schedule.

Cedar Crest 42, Penn Manor 13

The undefeated Falcons welcomed to Earl Boltz Stadium a Penn Manor team that has struggled thus far.  Cedar Crest did not waste any time making sure that this remained the status quo.  The Falcons took the opening drive down the field, capping it off with a 2-yard plunge by running back Fernando Marquez.  A few minutes later, quarterback Jackson Custer found Leo Tirado on a 29-yard strike to give them a 14-0 lead at the end of the 1st quarter.

In the 1st five minutes of the 2nd quarter, Marquez would score twice more on runs of 9 yards and 10 yards.  A fumble on the next Comet possession led to a Malachi Victor recovery and subsequent run to the end zone. With the game never in doubt, Crest led 35-0 at the half.

Northern Lebanon 35, Pequea Valley 15

After a win last week over York Tech, Northern Lebanon entered their game at Pequea Valley with confidence.  Though they put up 35 points a week ago, Coach Jason Rice still had concerns about his offense and made it a priority in practice. Of his offense he said that it, “Still felt kind of flat, so we kind of changed up the way we practice this week, a little energy, little mojo, just enjoying the process.”  Whatever the Vikings did in practice, seemed to work as their head coach left the field very pleased with what he saw.

“It was nice to see the boys go out there and finally put together four full quarters in all three facets of the game: offense, defense, special teams,” said Rice.

Speaking of the game, the defense, which has been strong all year, held Pequea in check as the Northern Lebanon built a 21-3 halftime lead. Rice said, “If you look at the look at our season, with the exception of Susquehanna Township, our defense has been lights out.”  The Luke Shaffer-led unit clearly gave them an advantage tonight.

In terms of scoring, the Vikings did this in electric fashion as well, including a 75-yard kick return for a touchdown by Myles Watson and a blocked punt returned for a touchdown by Moises Gonzalez.  The Northern Lebanon offense added three touchdowns via the ground with Watson scoring once and Gonzalez adding two to give him a total of three scores in the victory.

While the defense surrendered ten second half points, the outcome of this one was never in doubt.  The Vikings improved to 2-2 and enter next week’s matchup against Lancaster Catholic showing that they may have figured out some more about their identity as a team.
