Souderton Independent - - OPIN­ION -

ing. “He’ll be com­ing in on Mon­day say­ing he’s a run­ning quar­ter­back now. But that was a great play. That was another one of those plays that was a wrin­kle where we went spread. Mike was the only back in the EDFN­fiHOG, wH IDNHG DwDy, pulled the tackle and Alex ran back­side and it was wiped out. Once he got into the sec­ondary, you could tell that no one was gonna get him. He was just de­ter­mined - he made two or three guys miss. That’s the best run of his ca­reer, by far.”

Krivda went on to throw a third touch­down pass to Biggam in the fourth quar­ter to put the game away.

It was Soud­er­ton E3-3, 1-2) WKDW OHG IRr PRsW RI WKH firsW half. An 80-yard run by Jar­rett Rein­hard set up a short fiHOG JRDO Ey :ROI IRr WKH firsW SRLnWs RI WKH FRnWHsW, DnG two rush­ing touch­downs by An­thony Wil­liams pro­duced OHDGs RI 10-0 DnG 17-6.

A.-. CurRWWR’s 64-yDrG strike to Kyle Wenger had the Big Red look­ing good, up 23-12 mid­way through the sec­ond.

“We did Eget some big plays), and I was hop­ing it would be enough, but it seemed ev­ery time we got one, they coun­tered,” Soud­er­ton coach Ed dal­lagher said. “vou’ve got to tip your cap to Pen­nridge. They re­ally played hard. It’s a great ri­valry. It re­ally is.”

Rein­hard rushed for 158 yards for the In­di­ans, who were dealt some mis­for­tune when Wil­liams left the game with an in­jury early in the third.

CODss’ finDO WRuFKGRwn run of the night was his short­est, a one-yard burst that put Pen­nridge up 39-29 in the fourth, and the Big Red could not get closer.

“Class is ex­cel­lent,” dal- lagher said. “For two weeks in a row, we’ve played two out­stand­ing run­ning backs, Eafter fac­ing CB South’s Josh Adams last week), and the sad thing is, we’ve got to get ready for them again next year. They’re fan­tas­tic run­ning backs. They have dif­fer­ent styles, but they’re ERWK YHry HI­fiFLHnW.”

The two will meet next week at Poppy voder, with first place at stake. An im­pres­sive Pen­nridge of­fen­sive line will look to open up holes, and when it can’t, Class may just make his own.

“That’s unique, be­cause he’s not like a power back - he’s only 170 SRunGs, EuW , KDYH nHYHr seen a guy that size that tough,” Cuth­bert said. “And block­ing - he throws it up in there, he’s un­sHO­fisK. TKH NLG KDs LW DOO. HH’s a spe­cial player, and you’re al­ways happy when you see kids that have great at­ti­tudes and are team play­ers have that type of suc­cess. Mike epit­o­mizes the type of player that we want to have here.”
