Penns Valley Pee Wees make a splash in JVFL’s Brothers Pool Bowl

By Kenny Varner

LEWISTOWN – Penns Valley’s Pee Wee football team made quite a splash in the Brothers Pool Bowl Saturday to kick off the Juniata Valley Football League’s Bowl Weekend.

The Rams run attack was too much for a fiesty Little Mingoes team as it defeated the “Green and White” 36-7 at Mitchell Field in the opening game.

Gannyn Stover led the rushing game for the Rams, busting out for 87 yards on the ground.

The Little Mingoes air attack went for 61 yards and a 44-yard TD.

With the ball first, Penns Valley wastes little time marching down the field on a 9-play drive that culminated in a Stover 1-yard TD rum. With the successful PAT, Penns Valley led 7-0 with 4:03 left in the first.

On the Little Mingoes first possession, they were forced to punt the ball away and right into the hands of the Penns Valley’s scoring offense.

In the second, the Rams finished a 13-play drive when Parker Nye scored on a 1-yard TD, with a successful 2-point conversion, the group upped its lead to 15-0 with 5:51 left in the half.

The Mingoes cut the lead to 15-7 when quarterback Preston Earnest hooked up with receiver Lucas Hartung on a 44-yard TD pass with the PAT being very successful.

However, there would be no more scoring the rest of the quarter as the two teams went into the intermission with Penns Valley leading 15-7.

But the second half belonged to the Rams as they outscored the Little Mingoes 21-0 in the second half.

Opening up the third, Penns Valley upped its lead on the first play from scrimmage when Stover notched touchdown number two, blazing his way from 36-yards out, upping it 22-7.

After a Little Mingoes four-and-out, the Rans were at it again.

On just a three play drive, Isaac Harpster muscled his way in from one-yard TD run, extending his team’s lead to 29-7.

With time running out in the final stanza, the Rams put the game on ice when Isaac Harpster hit receiver Parker Feltenberger on a 23-yard TD pass, ending the scoring at 36-7 and giving Penns Valley the hard fought victory.
