A record breaker, a last-minute winner, a 300-yard rushing team and more
Plenty of meat on the bone for lads in the Colonial with a record performance (Sy Burgos, East Pennsboro), a trio of backs who totaled nearly 300 rushing yards (Northern) and a last-minute touchdown for the only points (Shippensburg). Plenty of entertainment value right there. What stood out to me going forward was a team that lost — Greencastle-Antrim. The Blue Devils lost to big-school Chambersburg by two points. Something tells me that result will serve this group from Franklin County well going forward.
Three of a kind in the Northern backfield:
A triple threat at running back could make the Polar Bears extremely dangerous this season. They still have balance, but in RB’s Cole Bartram, Timothy Bonin and Talon Balluscio they have three underclassmen who all appear they could be RB1. The trio had 40 combined carries for 276 yards and four touchdowns. Hope they took a few of the offensive linemen to Baker’s Diner for some eats and thanks.
