November 1, 2015 - garden totes
With one week left in a unchanging season, there aren’t going to be that many surprises, though a reporters have gleaned copiousness of insights from this past Friday night’s gridiron action.
Donegal: The Indians are a volatile team. Playing though heading rusher Austin Dimeler, a Tribe battled reigning Section Three champion Northern Lebanon and stormed behind to take an eight-point lead early in a fourth quarter.
Several players had standout games, including Tanner Shirk, who rushed for 140 yards and dual touchdowns; Mario Marshall, who set adult his possess 1-yard TD with a good hit-and-spin pierce that led to a 29-yard run; and an descent line whose halftime adjustments in their restraint schemes led to dual second-haf scores.
Penn Manor: The Comets found some second-half success opposite Wilson, capitalizing on a integrate large plays to get on a board. But overall, Penn Manor struggled to find an descent stroke and Wilson’s offense captivated a immature Comets’ defense.
A outing to Cedar Crest will offer Penn Manor one final event to get a win in conduct manager John Brubaker’s entrance season.
Wilson: After a Week 8 feat opposite Manheim Township, a Bulldogs kept things elementary on Friday. According to using behind Shane Dantzler, Wilson opted not to supplement anything new to a descent playbook — and it showed in a clean executed diversion devise opposite Penn Manor. With courtesy commencement to change toward a district playoffs, Wilson put a discerning 35 points on a house and got starters out of a game, avoiding any vital injuries.
Hempfield: Hempfield’s offense looked a small opposite Friday night in a 54-14 thumping of Warwick.
Quarterback Sam Kramer threw for 270 yards and 3 touchdowns as a Knight offense racked adult 522 yards. Hempfield came into a diversion with usually 480 yards flitting by a initial 7 games.
“I consider it creates a using diversion improved if we can chuck a round a small bit more,” pronounced Hempfield manager Ron Zeiber. “If we have both going, it gives us a options we need to be successful.”
Warwick: Despite a unilateral detriment to Hempfield, a Warriors were means to pierce a round during times, to a balance of 300 sum yards.
Quarterback Taylor Lentz finished 11-of-18 passes for 177 yards and dual touchdowns, both to Colin Gibble, who started a diversion during QB.
Elizabethtown: It was 45 degrees on Friday night when a Bears’ players dumped Gatorade all over conduct manager Bill McDonald.
McDonald frequency cared. It was a initial Elizabethtown win in dual years, and his initial win over his former team, Lancaster Catholic. And on Senior Night, it was utterly a night for a Bears.
Lancaster Catholic: The Crusaders struggled mightily on offense opposite Elizabethtown, producing usually 133 yards.
Their usually touchdown came by approach of an interception returned for a touchdown, while a offense managed usually 8 initial downs.
Ephrata: They contend it all starts adult front in football. But what happens adult front starts in a weight room.
Suffice to say, if Ephrata is to spin a scuffling module around, that is substantially where it needs to start.
Don’t let a stats dope you. The Mounts out-gained Elco on a ground, picking adult 170 yards rushing to a Raiders’ 133. But that is misleading. In a initial half, opposite Elco’s starters, they managed usually 48 yards on 19 using plays. That’s usually 2.5 yards per carry.
On a other side of a ball, Elco’s Tyler Horst spent roughly as most time in a Ephrata delegate as a Mounts’ cornerbacks. Thanks to his line’s winning play, Horst ran by gaping hole after gaping hole, averaging roughly 9 yards per tote.
Elco: There is still one some-more unchanging deteriorate diversion left on a schedule, though for all intents and purposes, a Raiders’ deteriorate finished when Northern Lebanon flog Donegal, denying Elco a share of a Section Three crown.
So it unequivocally is not too shortly to start looking toward subsequent year. The bad news is that graduation is going to take quarterback Jeff Martin and his favorite target, wideout Andrew Olson.
The good news is that using behind Tyler Horst is usually a junior. That gives conduct manager Robert Miller a flattering good place to start rebuilding his offense.
Horst ought to attract some courtesy from college coaches after a deteriorate he has had. His 115 yards opposite Ephrata — all in a initial half — puts him during 1,363 yards for a season. That is an normal of some-more than 150 yards per game.
At 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, Horst has a distance and strength to pierce a raise and to lift guys with him. He also has decent speed, that he showed on his second TD of a game, a 43-yard journey where he pennyless by a hole and simply outran everybody to a finish zone. We will no doubt see a lot some-more of Horst subsequent year as a senior.
Northern Lebanon: Offensive standouts Luke Funck and Isaac Wengert showed once again they can star on invulnerability as well.
Funck, a using back/outside linebacker, was a force off a edge. He was in on mixed stops for a Vikings and available 3.5 sacks and a fail recovery.
Wengert, a QB/defensive back, was also a cause on invulnerability as a Vikes forced 4 fumbles and 3 turnovers and pitched a shutout in a wilful final 10 minutes. It all led to a Vikings clinching during slightest a share of a second true territory title, a initial repeat in module history.
McCaskey: Faced with a adversity of eligibility and cessation issues with a quarterbacks, as good as self-inflicted on-field wounds, a Red Tornado did not respond well.
Coach Rob Monzon spoke of wanting to teach team-wide mental toughness. With a week left in a season, that seems to be some-more a task, and building block, for subsequent year.
Manheim Central: The Barons will have a assured quarterback when they get their shot during undefeated Solanco in Week 10.
After rushing for 210 yards and 4 touchdowns opposite Garden Spot, Kody Kegarise is using a choice with precision. When pulpy to throw, Kegarise connected on 8 of 14 passes for 109 yards. The Barons’ invulnerability towering a diversion in a second half, agreeable usually 4 second-half initial downs.
Garden Spot: The Spartans are now on a outward looking in when it comes to a District Three playoff berth. But they seem to be on a verge of some-more coherence both offensively and defensively.
Running behind Jahad Jeffers is a proven descent arms and sophomore Cameron Roth creates plays notwithstanding still learning. Spot’s invulnerability dug in in a third entertain opposite Manheim Central, gripping a diversion close.
The Spartans play a lot of underclassmen. This season’s heedfulness might produce subsequent season’s successes.
Cocalico: After descending to Solanco Friday, a Eagles incited their courtesy to a regular-season culmination during Lancaster Catholic.
“One of us is going to go 5-5,” Cocalico manager Dave Gingrich said. “One of us is going to go 4-6. That’s a preference we have to make this entrance week.”
Cocalico fell out of synch after pulling even with Solanco late in a initial entertain Friday. The Eagles authorised Solanco to redeem an onside flog to open a second half and fumbled a round on a Golden Mules’ 16 late in a game. The mistakes and missed opportunities cost Cocalico opposite an jaunty Solanco team.
Solanco: Head manager Tony Cox took a Golden Mules to final year’s District Three Class AAA final —between Cocalico and Bishop McDevitt — as spectators. He wanted his group to knowledge a atmosphere and see a turn of play compulsory to win in a postseason.
It helped a Solanco players buy into Cox’s weight-training fast and kept them focused via a offseason. The Golden Mules also showed descent flexibility opposite Cocalico, pitching a round outward when a Eagles swarming a inside defensively.
The efficacy outward non-stop adult inside plays from Solanco’s large hitters, Noah McCardell and Robbie Hassel, after in a game.
