On a chilly, late summer evening, the Scouts and Tigers met in a BCIAA Section 2 game at Fleetwood. Conrad Weiser, coming off of a 6-6 campaign in Section 1, and Fleetwood, coming off of an 8-3 season, were both looking to start the 2020 season with victories.
With a fan base of about 30 on hand, the Scouts got on the board first. Senior Iann Firestone (4 rushes, 24 yards) ran in from four yards out. The PAT was blocked and the Scouts led 6-0. Fleetwood answered right back, taking the ball 80 yards on seven plays. Junior Tanner Maddocks (11 for 28, 220 yards, 2 TDs) found senior Wesley McCalpine (2 receptions, 33 yards) for a 22-yard pass and score. The extra point put the Tigers ahead 7-6 with 6:08 to play in the half.
Conrad Weiser scored on their next possession as Firestone again found pay-dirt. His run from two yards out put the Scouts back in front. A failed two-point attempt made the score 12-7. Again, Fleetwood would respond. Maddocks completed a long pass to senior Matthew Peirce for a 70-yard touchdown. A failed PAT made the score 13-12 Fleetwood.
The offensive first half continued when Conrad Weiser junior quarterback Logan Klitsch (13 for 19, 272 yards, 1 TD and 14 carries for 70 yards and 2 TDs) found junior Aanjay Feliciano (7 catches, 160 yards, 1 TD) for a 56 yard touchdown. A double reverse two-point attempt (Erik Moyer throwing to Cameron Jones) took us to the break with Conrad Weiser leading 20-13.
The Scouts dominated the second half. Klitsch scored twice on runs of 8 and 18 yards. A game that could have had many more points if it weren’t for penalties (14 for Weiser, 11 for Fleetwood), ended with the Scouts winning 34-13. The biggest difference in the game was Conrad Weiser’s ability to establish a running game (39 carries for 169 yards) when Fleetwood could not (24 carries for 37 yards). Next week Conrad Weiser will host Twin Valley on Friday evening while Fleetwood will travel to Wyomissing for a Saturday matinee.
