Stallworth

Farrell’s Anthony Stallworth is pictured during last season's PIAA Championship game. On Friday, Stallworth set a school record by scoring six first-half touchdowns in a win over Sharpsville.

Reynolds and Wilmington moved to 4-0 on Friday. The Raiders defeated West Middlesex in Region 1 play, 36-14, while the Hounds rolled to a 48-6 Region 2 win at Greenville.

Also Friday, Anthony Stallworth scored 6 first-half touchdowns as Farrell beat Sharpsville, 51-7, in a Region 2 contest.

Sharon grabbed its first win of the season with a 31-20 Region 3 decision over Slippery Rock; Lakeview beat Saegertown, 22-12, in Region 4 and  Brookfield routed Campbell Memorial, 35-0, in a Mahoning Valley Athletic Conference clash.

Kennedy Catholic (0-3) hosts Mercer (1-2) in a Region 1 contest at 11 a.m. today.

Following are staff reports from Friday’s games:

• Farrell 51, Sharpsville 7 – At Farrell’s Anthony J. Paulekas Stadium, Anthony Stallworth rushed for 246 yards on only 13 carries and scored a school-record 6 first-half touchdowns in the Steelers’ Region 2 win.

Stallworth scored on touchdown runs of 1, 1, 19, 52, 52 and 33 yards. He also converted a 2-point conversion run to score 38 of Farrell’s 51 points.

The Steelers’ other score came on a 44-yard TD pass from Christian Hartley to Sihe Kellar. 

Also for Farrell, Lamont Samuels Jr. booted an extra-point, and Brice Butler, Trian Holden and Omar Stewart Jr. had 2-point conversions.

Hartley was 4-of-4 for 91 yards while Holden went 2-of-3 for 56 yards. Butler caught 2 passes for 56 yards and Stewart hauled in a pair of passes for 56 yards.

For Sharpsville, Danny Henwood had a 25-yard TD run and Liam Campbell tacked on the extra-point kick.

Henwood rushed for 96 yards on 15 carries. Sharpsville had no passing yards.

• Reynolds 36, West Middlesex 14 – At Transfer, Reynolds last won a conference title in 2001, when the Raiders went 6-0 and won the Mercer County Athletic Conference’s Class AA-AAA division.

Friday night, the 2020 Reynolds squad put an emphatic end to that 19-year drought.

The Raiders’ starting offensive backfield combined for over 300 rushing yards while the defense and special teams forced 3 turnovers Friday night to help lift Reynolds to a Senior Night victory over  in Region 1 action.

The Raiders have clinched at least a share of the region title. A Mercer loss today at Kennedy Catholic or a Reynolds win next week at Mercer will give the Raiders the outright region title.

“It’s a testament to these kids,” Reynolds Head Coach Josh Mull said. “We put a game plan together each week and they go out and they execute. The kids did a wonderful, wonderful job tonight.”

Senior halfback Dreyvin Livingston led Reynolds with 98 rushing yards on nine attempts. Quarterback Brayden McCloskey added a season-high 80 yards on 17 attempts. Meanwhile, senior halfback Cole Toy posted 75 yards and two scores on 18 attempts and senior fullback Josh Mull ran for 45 yards on 5 carries, including a 33-yard touchdown run.

“We have a good stable of backs,” Coach Mull said. “They all run hard and they all run well.”

Reynolds seized control late in the 1st quarter by scoring a pair of TDs in a 57-second span. Two plays after Jalen Wagner returned a kickoff to the West Middlesex 40-yard line, Mull scored his 33-yard touchdown run. Livingston’s 2nd of 4 extra points gave Reynolds a 14-7 lead with 1:40 left in the opening quarter.

Visiting West Middlesex (2-2, 2-2) fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Reynolds senior safety Quinton Earley recovered the loose ball at the 14. McCloskey ran for 12 yards and Toy followed with a 2-yard touchdown run with 43 seconds left in the half. Holder Aidan Mull then threw a 2-point conversion pass to Hayden McLaughlin on a fake extra point, extending the lead to 22-7.

West Middlesex drove to the Reynolds 10 in the closing moments of the 1st half, but Toy intercepted a Ty Tate pass at the 2, ending the threat.

“That’s what you need sometimes, for someone to step up,” Coach Mull said. “Cole’s a clutch player. He has a great mind for the ball and he got himself in the right position at the right time.”

The Big Reds did cut the lead to 22-14 on the first play of the 2nd half, however. In an unused West Middlesex offensive wrinkle to that point, wingback Colby Johnson lined up at fullback. He then took Tate’s option pitch and sprinted 68 yards to the end zone.

Midway through the 3rd quarter, Reynolds began a 13-play, 62-yard drive that carried into the 4th quarter. McCloskey scored on a 1-yard run with 11:04 left.

Livingston intercepted a pass at the West Middlesex 41 with 10:01 remaining. On the 11th play of the subsequent drive, Toy scored on a 2-yard run.

Reynolds’ final 2 scoring drives used a combined 12 minutes, 30 seconds. For the game, the Raiders held a 30:35-17:25 edge in time of possession.

“That’s kind of the way we’re built,” Coach Mull said. “West Middlesex did a great job. They slowed us down tremendously and our kids kept plugging away. Eventually, we got in there.”

Livingston opened the scoring with an 84-yard touchdown run midway through the 1st quarter. West Middlesex forged a 7-all tie when Tate threw a 21-yard TD strike to Chris Smith.

Tate finished 12 of 21 for a career-best 168 yards. Alex Rea caught five passes for 60 yards while Johnson had three receptions for 60 yards. Johnson ran for a team-best 76 yards on four carries.

Smith also recorded a sack for West Middlesex. Rocco John-Daniello recorded 2 sacks for Reynolds and Luke Faber recorded a sack. John-Daniello also threw a 19-yard pass to Earley on a fake punt in the 2nd quarter.

“Kids win football games, coaches do a good job of losing them,” Coach Mull said. “(The Raiders have) done a great job and they deserve all of the credit. Not only the seniors, it’s a great bunch of kids altogether.” – By Ryan Briggs, Herald sports correspondent.

• Sharon 31, Slippery Rock 20 – At Tiger Stadium, Coach Jason McElhaney’s Tigers (1-3) picked up their 1st win of the season with a Region 3 win over the Rockets (1-3).

Slippery Rock went up 7-0 in the opening quarter on a 46-yard blocked punt return by Ryan Montgomery and Alex Duffalo’s kick.

Sharon went up 10-7 in the 1st quarter on an 11-yard TD run by Labrae Norris and Jake Auchter’s PAT, followed by a 26-yard field goal by Auchter.

• Wilmington 48, Greenville 6 – At Greenville, Coach Brandon Phillian’s Hounds moved to 4-0 with the Region 2 win over the Trojans.

Lakeview took an early 2-0 lead when Ryan O’Polka tackled Saegertown quarterback Henry Shaffer in the end zone for a safety.

The Sailors went up 9-0 in the 2nd quarter on a 1-yard TD run by Isaac DeVault and Mitchell Tingley’s extra-point kick.

Lakeview increased its lead to 15-0 in the 2nd frame on a 1-yard touchdown run by Damon Kerr, but Saegertown cut the lead to 15-6 late in the 1st half on a 5-yard TD run by Jacob Reisinger. 

In the 3rd quarter, the Panthers scored on a 10-yard run by Ryan Yoder to trim the lead to 15-12.

The Sailors put the game away in the 4th quarter on a 3-yard TD run by quarterback Gavin Murdock and Tingley’s PAT.

Cologano Wilkins led the Lakeview ground game with 15 carries for 107 yards while Murdock rushed for 61 yards on 11 totes. Murdock was 1-of-7 for 47 yards with the pass caught by Wilkins.
