(Gazette photos by Jamie Isenberg) Bobcats wrap up perfect regular season with win Continued from page 15 "The blocked punL was large," said Dettorre. "It was something we worked on this week from scouting and something I thought we could certainly do." The Rains' first punt of the second quarter traveled just 12 yards, setting up a 53-yard run by Boone through a big hole opened on the right side. Blairsville added one more touchdown before halftime with its most time-consuming drive of the first half, a nine-play, 53-yard march that ate up more than three minutes. Austin capped it with an 11-yard pass to junior Matt Strope. Meanwhile, Blairsville's defense held the Rams to minus-9 rushing yards in the first half and did not allow Laurel Valley to cross the 50 until a personal foul penalty put the Rams on Blairsville's 45 midway through the third quarter. Laurel Valley moved the ball two more yards and punted. The Rams found themselves in Blairsville territory only once more when Blairsville lost a fumble on its own 19. Laurel Valley capitalized with a 19-yard scoring pass from quarterback Jeff Sisitki:to wide receiver Jon Matson iate in the "I Can honestly tell you I haven't made a decision. We go year-to-year. My wife said it's up to me, because she doesn't want me to think that she made up my mind for me. But it's not up to me. We'll talk about it in a week or two and go from there." — Laurel Valley coach Jerry Page, when asked if he'll return next year third quarter. Blairsville opened the third quarter with a four-minute, eight-play scoring drive that covered 57 yards. Austin covered 35 yards on five rushes and took it in on an 8-yard run around the right side. The Bobcats wrapped up their regular-season scoring with a 23-yard run off the counter handoff to senior fullback Brandon Falcone. Falcone, a linebacker, was once again more recognizable as a leader of Blairsville's pass rush. Sisitki started the game as the area's most efficient passer, but tight coverage and lots of pressure held him to just three completions in 10 attempts for 34 yards. The game might have been Page's last as head coach of the Rams, but Page would not commit one way or another on the issue after the game. "I can honestly tell you I haven't made a decision," said Page, who has coached the Rams since 1979. "We go year-to-year. My wife said it's up to me, because she doesn't want me to think that she made up my mind for me. But it's not up to me. We'll talk about it in a week or two and go from there." Bobcats get a lift from ball boy Blairsville coach Ab Dettorre would much rather have seen his son Nick in uniform Friday night against Laurel Valley after a three- week absence. But Nick's return to the sideline in a less significant role still held a special irony for the Blairsville Bobcats, and, all things considered, that was good enough for now. Young Dettorre, a junior, is recu- perating from an illness that landed him in the hospital for awhile. But he rejoined the team not in his familiar linebacker role, but as a ball boy, because he was not yet physically ready for action. Nick Dettorre first served as a ball boy in 1995, the last year Blairsviile went undefeated in the regular season, and he assumed that role again on the same night that Blairsville once again reached the 9- 0 mark The coincidence was not lost on dad. "Everybody thought of that, him being a ball boy here again tonight. But I knew he'd do a good job with it," said coach Dettorre, who was just pleased to have his son at the field again. "I almost had him suit up. But he felt it was better for (he team that he didn't." — John B. Smathers Perry gives new meaning to perfect Scholastic briefs indianagazette.com The Indiana Gazette on the Internet PITTSBURGH {AP} — Some perfect seasons are more perfect than others. Take the Perry Commodores, who shut out all nine of their regular-season opponents. The Pittsburgh City League school beat Weslinghouse 67-0 on Friday night to become the first Pennsylvania high school team in 43 years to finish the regular season without allowing a point. "We have a special group of kids," coach Bill Gallagher said. "We believe in them, they believe in us, and good things happen," The last Pennsylvania team to accomplish the feal was East Pennsboro, near Harrisburg, |n 1959, which held 10 opponents scoreless. Perry is the ijlth Pennsylvania team to finish the regular season without giving up a point. Perry has outscored its opponents 477-0 after allowing just six points in 2001. Westinghouse drove to the Perry 8 with 40 seconds left, but cornerback Mike Reid forced a fumble and safety Kenya Venson returned it 91 yards for a touchdown. "We broke some history," Reid said. "But our goal is to win the state championship. We say that before and after every single game and practice." Bartolomucci allowed to coach again BROWNSVILLE — Brownsville High School football coach Don Bartolomucci was allowed to coach his final game after all. Bartolomucci announced earlier he would retire at the end of the season, only to be suspended last week for the school's final two games. However, Bartolomucci learned Thursday he could coach in Friday night's game against Charleroi. He did not coach last week against Elizabeth Forward. Bartolomucci was told the school board suspended him during an executive session, a decision that is not permitted in a closed session. He said the suspension followed a confrontation with a parent. A member of the Pennsylvania Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame, Bartolomucci, 65, has been Brownsville's coach for eight seasons and a head coach for 21 seasons.
