ACC “Passes” by Abington Heights 28-14.
Bethlehem: Allentown Central Catholic (12-1) threw the ball around and over Abington Heights (11-2) en route to a win and advance to the 2nd round of the PIAA state playoffs.
Once again it was super sophomore QB Brendan Nosovitch who directed his team down the field. Nosovitch was 13/23 for 191-yards and 3 scores. He also rushed 20 times for 56-yards against a stingy Comet’s run defense.
On ACC’s first drive of the game, Nosovitch put his team on his back completing 4/4 passes for 77-yards with his last completion being a 24-yard TD strike to Jack Sandherr.
A few series later it again was Nosovitch at work this time hitting Shane McNeely for the 10-yard score.
ACC took a 14-0 halftime lead.
To start the 2nd half and after a nice KOR, the Vikings went 47-yards in 9 plays with Nosvitch hitting Kevin Mckellock for the 14-yard TD to put the Viking’s up 21-0.
Although Abington Heights was unable to be consistent with their running game, they would finally get on the board with a 60-yard TD run by speedster James Fruehan.
On the ensuing kickoff, ACC’s Kevin Gulyas returned the kick 80-yards to the house to put the Viking’s back up by 3 scores.
The Comets would get on the board one last time thanks to a dropped punt return by ACC’s Gallagher at his own 23-yard line. The result was Mike Bemish to Morgan Craig for the 6-yard TD pass.
The Viking’s were able to contain the larger and much hyped Abington Heights running game led by Juniors Paul Gallagher and James Fruehan. ACC constantly had 8 or 9 men in the box often sacking or pressuring the QB and forcing the Comets to throw.
Next week ACC will meet (13-0) Selinsgrove who was a 35-3 winner over Greater Johnstown.
