Perkiomen Valley Shuts Out Boyertown
The Perkiomen Valley Vikings took their 5-0 record into Friday night against a 2-3 Boyertown Bears team who were looking to have the upset of the season against the Vikings. The result was anything but an upset. PV blanked the Bears 30-0 behind 361 yards of total offense, including 228 passing yards and three total touchdowns (two passing and one rushing) by senior quarterback Stephen Sturm. Seniors Mario Scotese and Kyle Beaudoin led the PV defense on their way to the goose egg.
Playing in the mud, things were fairly messy from the beginning. PV’s first three drives all ended up in punts. From that point on, it was all Perk Valley. On the Vikings’ fourth drive, Sturm led the offense down the field on a 55-yard touchdown drive, capped off by a six-yard scoring rush by Sturm. PV’s suffocating 3-5 defense limited the Bears to under 150 total yards of offense for the game. Senior cornerback Matt Ford-Bey and junior linebacker Joe Zeminski each had an interception. Also, junior linebacker Brian Fehr had the arguable defensive play of the game with a safety midway through the third quarter. Linebackers Kyle Beaudoin, Noah Shine, Brendan Schimpf, Brian Fehr, Mario Scotese, and Joe Zeminski combined for a total of 15 tackles, comprising 5.5 TFL’s (Tackles for Loss) and a sack. PV’s secondary consisting of all seniors – Matt Ford-Bey and Rasheed May at corners and David Williams at safety – entirely shut down the Bears’ pass game, limiting Boyertown quarterback Ayden Mathias to only 29 yards through the air.
David Williams finished with a PV-high 47 rushing yards and a TD. Sean Owens led all Perk Valley receivers with 73 yards, incorporating a 53-yard touchdown set up by a perfect route from Owens and a perfect ball from Sturm.
Perk Valley now moves on to the highlight of Week 7 as the Vikings travel to Royersford and take on the Rams of Spring-Ford. Spring-Ford beat PV last year 28-14, so one can only imagine that this week’s game will be strictly about payback for the Vikings. The Bears meanwhile, travel to Owen J. Roberts High School to take on the Wildcats.
