LEWISTOWN – The Cedar Cliff Colts traveled to Mitchell Field Friday to take on the Mifflin County Huskies on homecoming night.

What looked to be a promising start for Mifflin County, trailing by seven after one quarter.

However, the Colts would pounce on the Huskies to a 48-6 victory over Mifflin County at home.

The Huskies Played well at the beginning, Landon Haigh picked off Bennett Secrest in the corner of the endzone.

Landen Eichhorn connected with Jalen Bowersox on a deep pass Mifflin County would play some trickery as Bowersox would lateral pass the ball to Parker Kearns for a Mifflin County touchdown the extra point would be missed to make it a

7-6 game.

It wouldn’t be until late in the second quarter Cedar Cliff would find the endzone again. Secrest would Find his brother Blake

Secrest for a touchdown to extend the lead 14-6 with 1:29 remaining in the opening half.

The Colts would strike again before the half was over on a fumble recovery recovered by the offense that rolled down the field the Huskies were unable to fall on it which would be a race to the ball Julius Tirado would be the one to get rewarded with the score.

The Huskies’ defense had some bright spots as individuals in the game. Owen Gipe was all over the field making tackles. Kearns defended the pass well while also playing well all around the field. Trevor Miles recorded an interception picking off Tommy Calderone in the fourth quarter. Josh Maldonado helped out in the Tackle Department while Hunter Tipton also had a tackle tonight and fellow teammate Preston Ettinger had a tackle tonight Deakon Schaeffer also was in the tackle trio too. In the strong second half, that would prove to be too much for the Huskies as Mifflin County falls at Home 48-6.

Asking Coach Breon if they practiced the lateral pass in practice Breon


“No we were just in scramble mode Landon was scrambling and found Jalen and he saw Parker standing there and he was able to pitch it to him so it was a pretty neat play,” said Breon.  Unfortunately,  it was the only one we were able to get we will have to have a good defensive effort next week.  Again, I thought we played really hard in the first half Offensively we need to help them out we were able to establish much offense in the first half we had some shots we just missed them but we need to execute them plays when you have them and the shot plays and we weren’t able to do.”

Mifflin County travels to Milton Hershey next Thursday.
