Pa. Football: Interboro's Rentos shines in varsity debut

Travel Deals

First year varsity quarterback Nick Rentos made quite a first impression.

After playing junior varsity last season, Rentos started for Interboro on Friday night and led the Buccaneers to a come-from-behind, 21-14 victory over Springfield (Delco).

He finished with 271 yards passing, two touchdowns through the air and one on the ground. 

Rentos got the Bucs offense on the board early with a 1-yard touchdown scamper to take a 7-0 lead. The Cougars answered back and tied the score on a 45-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Aaron Coyne to senior Rob Murphy.

Murphy found the end zone again for Springfield in the third quarter on a 2-yard run. Down 14-7 in the fourth, Rentos went to work, finding receiver Rashon Fentress for a 19-yard score. The Mike Christaldi extra point tied it at 14, allowing for a tight finish.

Rentos again found the ball in his hand with less than two minutes left in the game with a chance to take the lead. He hooked up with receiver Mark Everton for a 31-yard score with 1:47 to go. 

Springfield couldn’t convert in the final moments and Interboro came away with the win.

Everton hauled in 179 yards receiving and a touchdown. On defense for Interboro, Dan Dickerson stood out with a fumble recovery and an interception.
