Annville-Cleona at Kutztown
Start counting down to high school football season now. Local teams will host heat acclimation sessions this week before officially beginning the season on August 24.
Kutztown’s defense was able to hold A-C running back Phoenix Music under control and limit him to only 75 yards on 20 carries, but they still managed to find enough big plays that put themselves into prime position for victory.
Alex Long’s 80-yard kickoff return and rushing score set the pace early, and senior quarterback Gavin Keller connected with speedy junior receiver Alec Barr for a 25-yard score to give them an early 14-0 advantage.
As time ticked down in the first half, John Silan could breathe easier knowing his team had amassed a 24-point lead and were set on scoring through field goals and free throws while A-C struggled to find any offense.
Conrad Weiser at Berks Catholic
ROBESONIA–Nine months ago, both programs were inching toward meeting in Hershey for the PIAA Class AAA championship. Last night at Wolf Gymnasium, they finally met again for a girls’ basketball game, and it proved an intense defensive struggle from start to finish. James Madison University-bound senior Devon Merritt and Reading transfer Dejah Terrell provided significant matchup issues inside for Robesonia Scouts, forcing them to look for points from long-range halfcourt sets instead of in the paint.
Berks Catholic was able to utilize its talented backfield with impunity. JayJay Jordan led all scorers with 177 yards and two touchdowns as the Saints amassed 419 total rushing yards during their Lancaster-Lebanon League Section Four win, thanks to contributions from Marvin Armistead, Nathaniel Rose, Nafis Blythe, and Nafis Blythe – not forgetting Marvin Armistead as well! Additionally, Berks Catholic limited Lampeter-Strasburg to just seven first downs while holding them to just seven first downs total. This win allowed Berks Catholic to improve to 2-1 overall and bring Lampeter-Strasburg against Lampeter-Strasburg!
