H.S. FOOTBALL: Penns Manor 35, Keystone 8
KENWOOD — Senior quarterback Lucas Kowalski rushed for a game-high 119 yards and eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for the season, and the Penns Manor Comets racked up 379 rushing yards and cruised past Keystone in a non-conference game Friday at Pat Corrigan Field.
Penns Manor racked up 23 first downs and didn’t punt on offense and held the Panthers (1-9) to 82 total yards and minus-28 rushing yards. The Comets sacked Keystone quarterback Austin Chambers nine times for a loss of 76 yards.
Bailey Mumau rushed for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Penns Manor, and Ethan Marshall added 86 yards and a touchdown.
Marshall had a 3-yard touchdown run in the first quarter to open the scoring, Kowalski added a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, and Mumau’s first score — a 21-yarder — came with 13.7 seconds remaining in the first half on a hook-and-ladder play. Nathan Dumm hauled in a 5-yard pass and pitched it to Mumau on a perfectly timed play, and Mumau raced down the left sideline untouched to help the Comets take a 21-0 halftime lead.
Mumau added a 34-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and two-way lineman John Stupic got in on the fun with a 4-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter for a 35-0 lead.
Penns Manor ended the regular season at 9-1 and will await to find out which seed it will receive in the District 6 Class A playoffs, which begin next week.
