WYOMISSING – When Wyomissing and Berks Catholic face off in any sport it is a very emotional game.  Each year when they face off in football, it ranks as one of the premier sporting events in the Berks County sports calendar.  On a sun splashed afternoon, Wyomissing (4-0) broke open a tight contest late in the first half and came away with a 35-7 victory over Berks Catholic (1-3).

Freshman Justice Hardy put his stamp on this contest in a big way.  Hardy had a TD rushing, a pick six that broke the game open late in the first half and a 31-yard TD reception in the 2nd half.  A solid defensive effort by the Spartan defense kept the Saints offense in check all game long.

Wyomissing sent a message early when its first offensive play was a 57 yard TD by Senior Drew Forrey.

On Wyomissing’s second possession Justice Hardy scored his 1st of three TDs on the day.

Berks Catholic hung tough.  Devin Garcia brought the Saints to within 7 with this TD plunge.

Most of the 2nd quarter was a defensive stand off.  Then as we came to halftime Berks Catholic scored two TDs in only 11 seconds to break the game open. A punt return by Ethan Bowers and then a pick six by Justice Hardy.

The only scoring of the 2nd half was this 36-yard TD from QB Logan Hyde to Justice Hardy.

Wyomissing moves on to host ELCO next Saturday in a Lancaster Lebanon League Section 4 clash.  Next week’s league game for Berks Catholic is a road contest at Donegal.
