Spartans Slam Muhls
On Saturday afternoon, everything was in place for one of Berks county’s biggest rivalries. The stands were packed with spectators lining up their folding chairs ready to watch their respective schools go to work. Rain began falling bringing the perfect weather for smash mouth football. Wyomissing answered the call and played some lights out football to send the Muhls heading back to Laureldale with a lopsided loss.
The Muhls did not get off on the right foot when Jorge Alvarez was tackled in the end zone to give the Spartans a safety and the early lead. After that, Wyomissing never looked back and scored three touchdowns in the first quarter. Two of the three touchdowns scored in the first quarter came on two gigantic runs by A.J Nally. He scored on running touchdowns of 49 and 63 yards.
Muhlenberg tried to put the first quarter behind them and start chomping away at their 23 point deficit in the second quarter, but could not produce anything. Instead, Wyomissing scored twice in the second quarter to make the score at halftime 34-0 Spartans.
Muhlenberg would finally get on the board when Mike Calvaresi took the ball in for a two yard touchdown run. This would be the Muhls only score Saturday afternoon. The offense could get nothing started aganist the Wyomissing defense. Quarterback Adam Huber completed two passes out of his seven attempts. He also had one interception in the game.
The Spartans scored twice more in the fourth quarter. The first touchdown in the fourth quarter was a defensive touchdown for Wyo as S. Smith recovered the ball in the endzone.
The final score would be 51- 7 in favor of Wyomissing. For Wyommising fans, this game proved they can be a top contender in the Berks Football League Section 2 and District 3-AA.
For Muhlenberg fans it was a disappointing game overall. The Muhls will get a chance to bounce back aganist another rival, Governor Mifflin, Friday at seven in Shillington. The Muhls will need to regroup this week and focus towards Mifflin this weekend. Governor Mifflin is 2-1, and the Muhls are 1-2 with their loss to Wyomissing.
