Roundup: Millero, Raiders roll past KC

---- — Mike Millero manufactured a game-high 19-carry, 179-yard rushing performance Saturday afternoon, as Reynolds High football team snapped a losing skid via a 49-0 victory over Kennedy Catholic.

In the matinee at Butala Stadium, the visiting Raiders (4-3) ran roughshod in the District 10 inter--region affair, amassing 321 total yards and coercing the Golden Eagles into a half-dozen turnovers.

Ian Sapot scored twice on 2- and 5-yard goal-line bursts, and Sapot set up a 3rd score with a fumble recovery and return — Garrett Daniello’s 6-yard TD toss to Chad McConnell.

Also for Reynolds, Kegan Miller collaborated with Levi Stoyer on a 42-yard TD toss, and Garhett Frable’s fumble recovery and subsequent 9-yard return during the 2nd stanza enabled the Raiders to run up a 21-0 margin at intermission.

Jake Leipheimer and Dylan McDanel mustered 20- and 22-yard scoring sprints in the 3rd and 4th frames, respectively. Also for Class AA Reynolds, Sam Faber, Millero, Curt Fowler and Michael Ryhal recorded pass interceptions and Kyle McConnell collected a sack and fumble recovery.

Reynolds had lost 3 of its previous 4 games (Region 3-AA opponents Grove City, Sharon, Wilmington, who are a collective 13-8). Only one of the Raiders’ wins thus far has occurred against a team with a winning record (Maplewood, 4-3), while the others have come at the expense of winless Titusville, Saegertown and Kennedy Catholic.

For Class A Kennedy Catholic (0-7), Zach Zehner rushed for 44 yards and he hauled in a 46-yard Garrett Ammann pass late in the game. However the Golden Eagles ended with only 135 total yards, slightly more than 3 yards per snap.

Tyler Moore registered 1èquarterback sacks and also recovered a fumble to key KC, and Sam Crow, who shared a sack, also caught a pair of passes.


District 10 Class AA Singles Tournament

Hickory’s Marissa Works advanced to the quarterfinals Saturday at the D-10 Singles Tourney at the Pennbriar Athletic Club in Erie.

Works, who was seeded 6th, lost to Mercyhurst Prep’s Lauren Petrella in the quarters. Petrella will play teammate Caitlyn Shultz for the D-10 title on Monday.

Hickory’s Rachel Mettee won her 1st-round match and then fell to Wilmington’s Alanna Elliott. Lauren McGonigle avenged an 8-1 loss to Warren’s Hansen at the Buhl Park Tourney, with an 8-3 win. She then bowed out to Mercyhurst Prep’s Taylor Levinson.

“We had a nice showing against the north,” said Hickory coach Joe Bender. “Works, McGonigle and Mettee all played well. I expect us to make some noise in the (D-10) doubles tourney Wednesday and for the team title Thursday. I can’t wait. Who wouldn’t want a shot at the defending state champions (Mercyhurst) on such a large stage. We’ll be ready to give it a shot, that’s for sure!”

  • SPORTVIEW: Pirates, Indians fans looking for big things this year

    LIFE IS GOOD if you are a fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates or Cleveland Indians. At least for now!
    Heading into Saturday, both teams were 3-1 and looking pretty sharp. Since both made the playoffs last year, there are high expectations for both clubs. But in baseball, every year is a new season and there are no guarantees.
    Still, it’s always nice when your favorite teams get off to a good start. In too many seasons, Pittsburgh and Cleveland fans were only talking about the NFL draft because hopes were bleak for their baseball teams.

  • SPORTVIEW: Eagles' release of Jackson was a strange move

    ONE OF THE strangest NFL moves I’ve seen in a long time involved the Philadelphia Eagles releasing DeSean Jackson.
    Jackson is one of the top wide receivers in the league and a danger to score every time he touches the ball, including punt returns. But the big question is: Why was he just released? Couldn’t they find a trade at least to get some value back?
