The Berks Catholic foot­ball team over­pow­ered Boyertown Fri­day night in a 64-6 non-league vic­tory at Me­mo­rial Sta­dium.

Last year’s PIAA Class 4A semi­fi­nal­ists had their way with the Bears by scor­ing in a mul­ti­tude of ways, in­clud­ing three spe­cial teams touch­downs in the first half, in­clud­ing a An­thony My­ers’ 65-yard punt re­turn and an Ab­dul MacFoy 90-yard kick­off re­turn.

Berks Catholic (3-1) amassed 400 to­tal yards, 259 on the ground. Lead back Bran­don Ge­orge took the open­ing play from scrim­mage 75 yards for a TD and was largely saved, car­ry­ing just twice. Colby New­town car­ried four times for 65 yards and two touch­downs.

Boyertown man­aged to rush for 210 yards, in­clud­ing a 12-yard touch­down run by Jamie Moc­cia (13 car­ries for 48 yards) in the sec­ond quar­ter that was the Bears’ lone score.

Berks Catholic shut down any pass­ing game for Boyertown as quar­ter­back Ay­den Mathias was just 2-for-6 with 27 yards and two in­ter­cep­tions.

Boyertown will open up Pi­o­neer Ath­letic Con­fer­ence play with a Lib­erty Di­vi­sion matchup at Methac­ton Fri­day night. FLEET­WOOD 24, UP­PER PERKIOMEN

21 » The Tigers ral­lied past the In­di­ans with a 10-point fourth quar­ter, quar­ter­back Kevin Bar­tosh’s 9-yard touch­down run in the clos­ing min­utes serv­ing as the dif­fer­ence-maker in this non-con­fer­ence matchup.

Up­per Perk led 21-14 at the end of the third quar­ter, but a 19-yard field goal from Wes Sea­man and Bar­tosh’s TD run proved all the dif­fer­ence.

Bar­tosh passed for 85 yards and a touch­down on 6-for-14 pass­ing for the game. He con­nected with Max Lafran­chise on a nine­yard touch­down pass to give Fleet­wood an early 14-13 lead.

Up­per Perk quar­ter­back Tyler We­ber was picked off three times, in­clud­ing a 43-yard in­ter­cep­tion re­turn for a touch­down. For the game, We­ber passed for 207 yards in­clud­ing a 93-yard con­nec­tion to run­ning back Tyrese Reid to open the scor­ing.

Reid pulled in 102 re­ceiv­ing yards on three catches to go along with 41 yards rush­ing and a pair of touch­downs. Luke Whary rushed it 13 times for 59 yards.

Up­per Perkiomen opens up PAC play next Satur­day with a Fron­tier Di­vi­sion matchup against Pope John Paul II.
