Roxborough High School
A bench-clearing brawl that stopped last Saturday’s Public League Class AA football contest between Del-Val Charter and host Roxborough has resulted in consequences for both sides.
It is expected, per National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), that both teams will be dealt a forfeit loss for the game.
Public League football moderator Ken Geiser said Tuesday afternoon he was awaiting word regarding the game's official result.
Great Valley needed some scoring help in the second half of its Ches-Mont League game with visiting Kennett and got it from Adam Boehr. Boehr connected for a second-half hat trick and led the Patriots past the Blue Demons in double overtime, 3-2.
Kennett grabbed a 2-0 lead on goals by Jake Tully and Alejandro Zavala in the first half, but Boehr came through in the second half, tying the game with 20 minutes left in regulation and won the game 2 minutes, 45 seconds into the first overtime.
Dan Shackleton stopped five shots to earn the win in goal and Greg Danchik turned aside 10 shots for Kennett.

Here is the Friday football roundup:
There’s no way to get around it. Upper Dublin simply has Upper Moreland’s number on the football field.
No matter what kind of a season the Golden Bears have had over the last six seasons, the Cardinals found a way to win.
In a Suburban One American Conference game, Anthony Williams rushed for over 130 yards and two touchdowns to boost Upper Dublin past Upper Moreland, 20-13.
The Golden Bears (2-2, 0-1), playing without injured star Chris Smallwood, took a 13-10 lead in the third quarter on Greg Adamson’s second touchdown. But the Cardinals (1-3, 1-0) rallied behind a 5-yard touchdown run by Williams and a 32-yard field goal by Casey Boyd.
Norristown 28, Cheltenham 0 — Tracey Presley scored the first and last touchdowns of the game and helped the Eagles (4-0, 1-0) beat the Panthers (1-3, 0-1) at Roosevelt Field.
Presley opened the scoring for Norristown with a 4-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, then closed it in the third quarter with a 13-yard scamper. In between, Sheldon Mayer took a punt 80 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter and Anthony Robey caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Shannon Mayer in the third quarter.
