>> The Blaz­ers proved that their nearly year-long funk is over by win­ning a sec­ond straight game, this one over the Muhls. Ryan Oku­niewski’s fourth down, 5-yard touch­down re­cep­tion from Josh Ehst with 31 sec­onds to play made win­ners of Boone on the road. The Blaz­ers over­came 239 rush­ing yards from Muh­len­berg’s Bran­don Gassert to notch the win. GOVERNORMIFFLIN28, EXETER21>> The Mus­tangs gained a mea­sure of re­venge over the Ea­gles for last year’s de­feat and sur­ren­der of the Berks 1 ti­tle. Mif­flin’s Aaron Grill scored three touch­downs, all in the first half, as the Mus­tangs built a 28-0 half­time lead be­fore a sec­ond-half rally by the host fell just short. Kam­ron Wolfe was an ef­fi­cient 6 of 8 for 100 yards and a score un­der cen­ter for Mif­flin; Bran­don Un­terkoe­fler was 11 of 25 for 180 and two scores for the Ea­gles. Gabe Schap­pell had six grabs for 128 yards and two TDs for Ex­eter.

KUTZ­TOWN 27, NA­TIV­ITY 13 >> The Kutz­town Cougars have shat­tered the rear view mir­ror in spec­tac­u­lar fash­ion.

Win­less in nearly four years com­ing into the sea­son, Kutz­town won its third con­sec­u­tive game Fri­day night with a 27-13 con­quest of Na­tiv­ity. The Cougars (3-1) outscored the Green Wave 20-0 in the sec­ond half – eras­ing a 13-7 half­time deficit – while out­gain­ing the vis­i­tors 348-167.

Kutz­town’s Lo­gan Bach­man rushed for 220 yards on 27 car­ries and two touch­downs, in­clud­ing the go-ahead score in the third quar­ter, a 20-yard jaunt.

Kutz­town snapped its epic los­ing streak – 40 games, stretch­ing back to the sec­ond week of the 2012 sea­son – in Week 2 when it de­feated name Shenan­doah Val­ley 31-6. The Cougars added a sec­ond scalp the fol­low­ing tilt by tak­ing out Pe­quea Val­ley 34-13.

Next up for the Cougars – win­ning a Berks 2 divi­sional game. That hasn’t hap­pened since Nov. 6, 2009, when the Cougars beat Fleet­wood 21-20. Kutz­town faces Twin Val­ley on Fri­day. The old­est of the cur­rent crop were in el­e­men­tary school then.

While Bach­man’s run­ning (536 yards on 73 at­tempts, a 7.3 per­carry av­er­age) has been the club’s en­gine, Kutz­town is prof­it­ing by the ma­tur­ing play of quar­ter­back Bray­den Eck. Eck had cut down on his in­ter­cep­tion rate, while throw­ing for 459 yards and four scores through four weeks. The 2-2 TV Raiders will pro­vide a stout test as his club chases that elu­sive Berks League win.

HAM­BURG 41, MA­HONEY 20 >> The host Hawks (4-1) con­tin­ued their im­pres­sive earl-sea­son run with a de­ci­sive non-league vic­tory. Tied at 7 in the first half, Ham­burg ripped off 35 con­sec­u­tive points on five scores to salt it away. Lo­gan Wer­ley scored three touch­downs and team­mate Jordan McAl­lis­ter two more on the back of 117 rush­ing yards on 17 totes.


VAL­LEY 14 >> The Pan­thers fell to 0-5 by fall­ing be­ing 49-0 in the first half to host Egan. Jack­son Brown had a late score for SV and was the team’s sta­tis­ti­cal leader

with 67 yards rush­ing on 11 car­ries. Egan’s Pa­trick Garwo ran for 105 yards on seven at­tempts and a score.


WOOD 22 >> The host Scouts crushed the Tigers (1-3, 0-1) in a Berks 1 en­counter on the strength of 38 first-half points. Fleet­wood’s Bren­dan Jocsak ran for 153 yards on 22 at­tempts, a 7.0 av­er­age, and found the end zone twice. But Weiser’s at­tack was far too strong in rolling up 501 to­tal yards: Seven Scouts found the end zone, paced by Kwis Mounti­nard’s two on the ground to ac­cent his 128 yards rush­ing on 10 totes.
