Governor Mifflin Controls Exeter Twp 28-14
Exeter Twp and Governor Mifflin have been the class of Berks Section One for the last decade. In recent years the matchup between the Eagles and Mustangs has been the de facto Berkshire One Title game. The 2017 winner was surely in the drivers seat for a league title and playoff berth. In a hard hitting battle Governor Mifflin came out on top 28-14 in Shillington Friday Night.
Governor Mifflin’s version of “the triplets” QB Kam Wolfe, RB Isaac Ruoss and Mr Everything Bryce Stubler had great performances. Wolfe and Stubler connected on two TD’s. One of 79 and the other 40 yards. Ruoss had TD runs of 80 and 20 yards. The Mifflin D played tough all night and held Exeter in check most of the game.
Mifflin Head coach Mick Veccio had high praise for his defense following the game. “They worked their butts off this week to shut him ( Exeter star RB Nick Sarangoulis) down. The defense did a beautiful job, this is a big rivalry”.
“Bryce Stubler is an amazing athlete and he has the wheels to get behind any defense.” said Mifflin QB Kam Wolfe. ” Wilson is more of a popular game, but Exeter, that is Mifflin’s true rival,” said Wolfe. Bryce Stubler said that the chemistry between himself and QB Kam Wolfe is special, “ we give each other eye contact , and we know what’s up”. What is up, is the Wolfe to Stubler combo is a deep threat to rival any 5A team in District 3.
No one had settled in their seats before the excitement came rolling out of this game. Exeter received the opening kick and on the first offensive play Jack Fiucci had a 64 yard TD catch and run. 7-0 Exeter. Less than one minute later Mifflin QB Kam Wolfe hit Bryce Stubler for a 79-yard score, making it 7-7 less than two minutes in. Finally everyone could take a breath.

Mifflin took the lead early in quarter two. Isaac Ruoss busted through the line and sped away from the Eagles defense for an 80-yard TD. Mifflin was in the lead 14-7. Mifflin’s next drive drove the length of the field but the Mustangs turned the ball over deep in the Exeter end. After Mifflin forced a three and out the Mustangs struck again. A pretty 40-yard toss from Wolfe to Stubler put Mifflin on top 21-7 going into the break.
Halfway through quarter three Mifflin stretched the lead once again. Isaac Ruoss finished an old school Mifflin ground and pound drive with a 20-yard run. Halfway through quarter three Governor Mifflin held a 28-7 advantage. A key point in the game came late in quarter three when the Mustangs D held an Exeter drive at their own 10.
Exeter did not give up. The Eagles forced a Mifflin punt. Their next drive got them on the board. Unfortunately it took too much off the clock. Mifflin got the ball back and it was keep away the rest of the game. The final was Governor Mifflin 28 Exeter 14.
