Wyomissing Continues District 3 Class 3A Dominance with 63-7 Romp
Wyomissing continued its district dominance with a 63-7 thumping of West Perry in District 3 Class 3A championship Friday afternoon at the Spartans’ A-Field.
Six different players rushed for at least one touchdown: Matt Kramer had 155 rushing yards and three scores, Charlie McIntyre 160 yards and two scores, Drew Eisenhower 82 yards and a score, Jeremiah Diaz 80 yards and a score, Ryker Jones 49 yards and a score, and Will Delp 33 yards and a score.
In total, the top-seeded Spartans (12-0) rushed for 618 yards to capture their fourth consecutive district championship.
“We’ve created a dynasty at Wyomissing,” senior running back Matt Kramer said. “It’s like a tradition. I told my guys today that we’re the three-time defending champs and it’s almost like every year it’s our tradition to do it, but we still got to earn it.
“We came out here and earned it today.”
All of the fast and athletic Spartans running backs run behind a massive offensive line headed by Penn State recruit J’Ven Williams (6-5, 295 pounds) and Pacen Ziegler (6-4, 275). Junior Caleb Brewer (6-5, 275) was out of Friday’s game with an injury but holds offers from Army, West Virginia, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Illinois, Rutgers, UConn, Princeton, Duke, Pitt, Western Michigan, Toledo, Houston, Boston College, and Maryland.
Somehow his absence didn’t matter.
The third-seeded Mustangs (11-2) made it seem like it would be a game after scoring on a 46-yard pass from Marcus Quaker to Ian Goodling gave them a 7-0 lead with 7:53 left in the first quarter.
But McIntyre took the second play of Wyomissing’s first drive 73 yards for a touchdown just 53 seconds later.
The Spartans then forced a four-and-out and went 47 yards in 10 plays while chewing up about 5:00 of clock before Kramer pounded in from the 4 with 48 seconds left in the first to give Wyomissing the lead.
Kramer then darted for a 63-yard touchdown to make it 21-7 with 7:51 left in the second quarter and scored from the 18 just 2:12 later.
Drew Eisenhower scored his touchdown from the 11 with 23 seconds left in the second quarter to give the Spartans a 35-7 lead at the half.
Jones scored his 41-yard touchdown with 8:34 left and McIntyre scored on a 63-yarder with 6:09 left in the third.
Delp scored from the 1 with 10:03 left in the game and Diaz took his sole carry 80 yards to the house with 3:48 left in the game.
Wyomissing attempted only two passes out of its Wing-T formation orchestrated by longtime and legendary head coach Bob Wolfrum, who became the winningest coach in District 3 history with his 349th career win.
“I get that they say I’m the winningest,” Wolfrum said. “But I don’t win any of the games. I’ve been here a long time. You don’t get to be the winningest unless you’re old to start. We have consistency within the staff. We all have each other’s backs and it’s easy to plan what we do because we’ve done it for so long.
“We really are in good shape just because of the tradition and consistency of our coaching staff. The kids expect to win because we’ve been doing it for so long. We’re in good shape as far as that goes.”
Quaker finished with 190 passing yards and 61 rushing yards and Ian Goodling had 128 receiving yards for the Mustangs.
West Perry moves to 4-7 overall and 0-2 in district championships; Wyomissing moves to 40-18 and 11-8 in championships.
Wyomissing travels to District 4 champion Danville in the first round of states next week.
