Special Team Play Lifts Crestwood
The notion that Crestwood is still a pretender has gone out the window after the Comets’, 7-6, victory over Dallas on Monday afternoon. Crestwood not only knocked off the Mountaineers in the Back Mountain but they also secured first place in the Wyoming Valley Conference.
Special team play came up big for the Comets. In the second quarter, Tony Morgante blocked a Dallas punt which set up a 38-yard Nick Aigeldinger pass play to Eric Pickett for a score to give Crestwood a 7-0 lead with just over a minute remaining in the opening half.
The Mountaineers got on the board on a Shane Dunn, 33-yard, touchdown grab from Ryan Zapoticky. However, after a failed extra point try, the score read 7-6 in favor of the Comets.
Dallas drove down the field with under ten seconds left in the game when Crestwood’s special teams came up big once again with a blocked field goal to snap their five-game losing streak against the Mountaineers.
Aigeldinger led Crestwood in rushing with 66 yards on 18 carries. The Crestwood defense held the Mountaineers to under 150-yards of rushing which is a feat seeing how Dallas has run the ball this year. Shane Dunn caught 5 passes for 57 markers.
Crestwood will take on Wyoming Valley West this Friday.
