For Conrad Weiser, it has been a turbulent few weeks. Following a 3-0 start, the Scouts were defeated by Exeter on a long touchdown late in the game. They rebounded last week against Daniel Boone, but it did not come easy, as they struggled for most of the game. However, the Scouts got back to it this week when they played host to Pottsville.
The Scouts gave one of the best defensive showings we have seen out of a Berks County team thus far, surrendering just 81 total yards while pitching a 29-0 shutout. The Scouts defense actually allowed -30 yards rushing and 111 through the air.
On offense, the Scouts once again were carried by junior RB Alex Guilbe, who rushed 20 times for 177 yards and a touchdown. Aidan Brosious completed 2 of his 3 pass attempts for the Scouts for 111 yards and a touchdown, while rushing 8 times for 41 yards and an additional score. The Scouts got a big play in the 2nd quarter when Brosious found Josh Joseph on a 75 yard touchdown pass.
For the visiting Crimson Tide, QB Tyler Moser completed 9 of 19 pass attempts, including 6 to Travis Blankenhorn. Freshman star Darion Jacoby was held to just 13 rushing yards on 15 attempts, which disappointingly led the Tide.
Next week, Weiser (2-1, 5-1) will square off with Twin Valley (0-3, 0-6) in Elverson. For Pottsville (1-2, 3-3), the next task at hand will be Friday night against Daniel Boone (1-2, 2-4) at home.
