Pottsville Edges Boone on Late FG

The Crimson Tide moved to (2-2, 4-3) on the season as they knocked off Daniel Boone by a score of 17-14.

The Tide came into the game off of a tough shutout loss to Conrad Weiser.  However, it did not take long for Pottsville to get on the board against the Blazers, as freshman Darion Jacoby took the opening kickoff back 91 yards for a touchdown, putting them up 7-0 in front of their home crowd.

It did not take very long for Nick Hughes and the Blazers to answer.  The sophomore QB ran a 4 yard keeper for a touchdown to tie the game at 7 before the end of the first stanza.

Jacoby once again got the Tide into the endzone in the 2nd quarter to give Pottsville a 14-7 lead heading into the half.

After a scoreless 3rd quarter, Kyle Myers tied the game with a 2 yard rushing TD about midway through the 4th.

Kolby Kleckner would go on to kick a late game-winning 23 yard field goal to give Pottsville the 17-14 lead.

Jacoby had a nice bounce-back game for Pottsville carrying for 50 yards and scoring both of the team’s touchdowns.  Pottsville was held to just 116 yards of total offense.

Kyle Myers continued his nice senior campaign with 27 carries for 172 yards and a touchdown.  He also had the Blazers only catch of the game.

The Crimson Tide (2-2, 4-3) will head to Shillington for a matchup with the first place Mustangs (4-0, 5-2) on Friday.  The Blazers (1-3, 2-5) will host Reading High (1-3, 2-5) the same night.
