Cruz Banda, Williams Valley, sr, OL/DL: Although the Vikings struggled collectively throughout a 30-12 loss to Minersville – and especially when they had the football – Banda put together a fine defensive effort against the Miners. Banda paced the Vikes with 11 tackles, including eight solo stops. He also posted a pair of tackles behind the line of scrimmage, both quarterback sacks.
Dan Darno, Notre Dame-Green Pond, jr, QB: Stop us if you heard this one before. Notre Dame-Green Pond junior Dan Darno did a bit of everything Friday night as the Crusaders took care of business against winless Salisbury Township. While there will be bigger challenges in the schedule, Darno led the way for the Crusaders with an efficient 12-of-16 passing for 148 yards. He added 76 more on the ground and a touchdown in a 48-6 victory.
Jared Rohn, Saucon Valley, so, WR: Rohn’s Saucon Valley Panthers fell Friday night to Bangor, 26-21 but Rohn turned in a stellar individual performance, snagging eight passes for a game-high 127 yards.
Eric Striba, Bangor, sr, QB: The do-it-all QB1 efficiently guided the Slaters past Saucon Valley Friday night, 26-21. Striba completed 80 percent of his passes for 85 yards and a touchdown, but it’s what he did with his legs–24 totes for 111 stripes and three TDs– that kept the Pathers off balance.
Dante Carr, Minersville, fr, QB: Talk about a statement victory for Minersville Friday night against Williams Valley. And Carr played a critical role, guiding his gents with a tiddy 7-of-11 passing for 111 yards and three scores.
