Senior quarterback Pat Moriarty and the Harriton Rams put on a dominating display Friday night at Chichester with a 42-14 nonleague victory.
One of the top quarterbacks in the Central League, Moriarty finished with 257 passing yards and three touchdowns.
The highlight of the night went to running back Desi Davis. Lining up in the slot, the senior ran a wheel route to the left sideline and hauled in Moriarty’s throw at the five yard line. He then dragged his defender into the end zone to give Harriton a 28-0 lead.
Central dominated High School of the Future from the opening kickoff as junior wide receiver Walt Pegues returned the squib kick 63 yards for a touchdown and the Lancers never looked back en route to a 40-8 nonleague win on Friday.
Pegues found paydirt again in the second quarter when he turned a five-yard reception into a twenty-yard touchdown catch-and-run.
Quarterback John Henderson finished with two touchdowns, and Andy Augustine added a 33-yard interception return in the fourth.
Senior quarterback Chris Geiss was responsible for all four touchdowns for Great Valley as the Patriots beat Phoenixville, 26-13, Friday night. Geiss scored threw for two touchdowns and rushed for two more in an impressive start to the Patriots’ season.
Phoenixville scored first with an 8-yard touchdown run by senior Sean Hesser but the extra point was missed.
Great Valley then scored 26 straight points starting with a 48-yard pass to senior Steven Praplaski. Geiss ran in a 1-yard touchdown before the end of the second quarter but a missed extra point kept the score at 13-6. Another Geiss rushing touchdown, this one from eight yards out, made it 20-6, and then he connected with Praplaski again on a long touchdown pass to put the game out of reach.
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.
Central Bucks West football started its 2012 football campaign by doing something it hasn’t done in 10 seasons.
The Bucks' defense shut out their opponent.
And they did it in style.
Aaron Kulig’s perfectly placed goal in the upper right corner gave Boyertown a 2-1 double-overtime win on Friday night at Owen J. Roberts in a Pioneer Athletic Conference game.
Tyler Comport dealt Kulig a pass across the 18-yard line and the senior forward finished it from 20-yards out.
The game was a rematch of last year’s Pioneer title game, which Owen J. Roberts won 2-0.
David Williams wasted no time making his impression as he dominated his Imhotep debut en route to leading the Panthers to an easy nonleague 68-13 win at Strath Haven on Friday night at Germantown.
Southeastern Pennsylvania's top running-back prospect, Williams finished with 133 yards on 13 carries. Two of his touchdown came in the first quarter. On the first play of the third quarter, he broke free for a 47-yard touchdown.
He played sparingly in the third and rested for the entire fourth.
Manny Fisher rushed for a pair of short touchdowns as Truman rallied in the second half to top host Lincoln, 13-7, in a nonleague game on Friday morning.
Lincoln trailed by seven points at halftime before Fisher scored from five yards out and then two yards out. He finished with a game-high 129 yards and was aided by Jordan Livingston’s 109 rushing yards.
The Truman defense limited Lincoln to just 20 yards in the second half, 14 of which came through the air. Durrell Dixon’s 29-yard interception return in the first quarter was Lincoln’s lone touchdown.
