LEWISTOWN – The Mifflin County Huskies Clashed with The Altoona Mountain Lions for a chance to play in the district 6 6A championship game.

Altoona’s ground game would be too much to handle for the Huskies, ending Mifflin County’s hopes of advancing Altoona besting the Huskies 26-8.

“We have created a culture now we expect to win you know we don’t win every week i think in two years we have accomplished a lot,” said MIfflin County coach Shane Breon. “We had winning seasons 11-9 in the last two regular seasons. I’m just happy for them that we had this opportunity.  We didn’t play well enough on offense especially in the first half to win but but im just proud of our guys.”

Bron Mosley was at his best for the Mountain lions accounting for four of the five touchdowns scored in the winning effort.

It wasn’t a good start for Altoona fumbling the ball Mifflin County would get the ball at their own 48. The Huskies would run two plays before turning the ball over on a fumble of their own from Jaylen Bowersox with 10:51 to go in the first quarter.

Altoona limited Huskies star running back Deakon Schaeffer for most of the night Schaeffer broke for a few big plays.

Mifflin County was punchless throughout most of the game.

The passing game struggled to get anything going As Mifflin County could only account for one touchdown through the air Landen Eichhorn found Parker Kearns for a seven yard score with 7:30 remaining in the game Eichhorn would also find Aidan Reed in the corner of the endzone for two points.

The Huskies defense would record a few tackles Kearns Owen Gipe Trevor Miles Travis Renninger Schaeffer all had tackles tonight while Avery Aurand had a strip sack late in the game on quarterback  Brennan Freiwald.

Mifflin County on defense allowed Mosley to carve up 116 yards on 27 carries.

The Mountain Lions gobbled up the Huskies to advance to the District 6 6A championship game against State College in Hollidaysburg next Friday.
