Governor Mifflin Topples Wilson WL 21-14
The Governor Mifflin Mustangs and Wilson Bulldogs face off every year to determine Berks County football supremacy. It had been since 2012 since the Mustangs beat the Bulldogs and Mifflin had never brought home the Gurski-Linn trophy which now signifies the winner of this cross town rivalry matchup. Friday night in Shillington, Governor Mifflin bolted to a big lead and then hung on to defeat Wilson WL 21-14.
QB Kam Wolfe is emerging as the leader of this Mustang team. Known for his arm, Kam led the Mustangs in rushing against the Bulldogs with 137 yards. Wolfe had a rushing TD and a 45-yard bomb to Tyshaun Weaver to open the scoring. The Mifflin D led by Sam Mueller, Niles Tanis and Isaac Ruoss held Wilson to only 180 yards of total offense.
“It feels better than I imagined,” said Mifflin QB Kam Wolfe. “We knew this was going to be a fight till the end, we had to leave everything on the field.” Mifflin Head Coach Mick Vecchio said a key to the game was keeping Wilson RB Iggy Reynoso in check. “I think our lineman on offense and defense did a great job tonight.”
Governor Mifflin started out strong. They moved the ball offensively and held Wilson in check. The Mustangs second possession hit paydirt. A 90-yard drive culminated when Kam Wolfe hit Tyshaun Weaver on a 45-yard bomb making the score 7-0 Mustangs at the 7:44 mark of quarter one. Governor Mifflin led at the end of quarter one 7-0.
The Mustangs extended the lead early in quarter 2. Bryce Stubler’s five-yard run made it 14-0 Mifflin as we opened quarter 2. Wilson finally began to move the ball. A productive drive came up empty when a field goal attempt was blocked by Mifflin’s Bryce Stubler. The defensive stand off continued and we went into the half with Governor Mifflin holding a 14-0 advantage.
Quarter three was a hard hitting back and forth until the 4:44 mark. Mifflin QB Kam Wolfe’s five-yard dive had the Mustangs up 21-0. As quarter four opened Wilson quickly got on the board. A Connor Uhrig pass to Nick Johnson made it 21-7 Mifflin with 10:20 left. Wilson then blocked a Mifflin punt. The subsequent drive ended when Iggy Reynoso plunged across. Wilson had Mifflin back in their heels down only 21-14 with 6:17 left. Mifflin got the ball back and would never give it back to Wilson. The game ending drive was highlighted by a gigantic 3rd & 9 conversion by QB Wolfe. Mifflin ran out the clock and years of frustration by Mifflin fans poured out from everywhere. The final was Governor Mifflin 21 Wilson 14.
Governor Mifflin moves on to face highly touted L-L league foe Cocalico. It sure does not get any easier for Wilson. Spring Ford is next up for the Bulldogs.
