Green Dragons Remain UndefeatedWritten by: Shawn Weller on Saturday, September 27th, 2008
MUNCY- If last week’s shut-out victory over a tough Hughesville(4-1) team proved that Lewisburg was for real, then last night’s game put an exclamation point on it. The Green Dragons(5-0) utilized 11 different runners and two receivers in their dominating 28-7 victory over the Muncy Indians(2-3) in this Heartland Conference Division III match-up.
The Indians received the ball to open the game and moved it well on their opening drive. They quickly marched 48 yards with a balanced attack, until four incomplete passes in a row gave the ball over to Lewisburg on their own 25.
Sean Bell then took the helm for Lewisburg and lead the way on a 75 yard drive including, a 27 yard toss to Logan James (3catches,62yd,2TD), a 12 yard run and the 10 yard scramble for the score. The PAT made it 7-0 with 55 seconds left in the first quarter.
The teams traded possessions until mid-way through the second when Lewisburg’s Jay Mathias blocked Frank Smith’s punt, giving the Dragons the ball at the Muncy 24. It only took Bell one play to find James in the endzone for the touchdown.
Muncy had an opportunity when a fumble gave them the ball in Lewisburg territory, but only managed to fumble the wet ball back three plays later. The half ended at 14-0. The crowd was then treated to a spectacular performance by the Green Dragon Marching Band despite the steady drizzle.
Lewisburg came out strong in the second half, quickly traveling 61 yards to the endzone. Highlighting the drive were a 14-yard keeper by Bell and a 32 yard break-away by Spenser Ercole. Ercole capped the series with a four yard touchdown jaunt.
The Green Dragons scored for their final time on their next possession, bringing the score to 28-0. Bell found Joe Stanley(two catches, 67 yd) on a 36-yarder to the Muncy ten. Then he connected with James for the 11-yard score.
The Indians found their groove again late in the fourth, putting together an 81 yard scoring drive. Strong runs by Frank Smith of ten and eight yards, set up passes from Daniel Murphy to Andrew Murphy for 15 and four yards (with another 15 tacked on for a face-mask call), and to Steve Shoup for 14 yards and the 15 yard TD. The PAT put this one in the books at 28-7 in favor of Lewisburg.
Muncy(2-3) travels to Turbotville next Friday to take on the beleaguered Warrior Run Defenders(1-4).
Lewisburg(5-0) hosts a very hot Central Columbia Blue Jay(3-2) team that gave Mount Carmel(5-0) a good fight on week five.
