PLAYER OF THE WEEK! (Week 9)

The Purchase Line Red Dragons are looking to finish the season on a high note. Josh Syster and his offensive line helped them take a big step Friday night.

Syster rushed for 243 yards on 20 carries and scored three touchdowns in a 56-22 romp over Saltsburg, which entered the game flying high, as the Red Dragons claimed their second win of the season. Purchase Line broke open a close game in the fourth quarter, pouring 30 points on a Saltsburg team that had staged its own big fourth quarters in a couple comebacks this season. Syster and the Red Dragons didn’t let that happen. Syster averaged 12.2 yards per carry and scored on runs on 26, 29 and 30 yards while raising his season totals to 777 yards and six touchdowns.
