This year, running back Leo Magulick and a stingy defense powered Northern Cambria to a 32-6 victory over Homer-Center and its fourth win without a loss in a Heritage Conference football game Thursday night. "I really believe this team has all of the tools necessary to move to the next level," said Northern Cambria cbach Frank Paronish. "I think we saw that tonight." Magulick, who entered Thursday's game as the Heritage Conference's third-leading rusher, piled up 122 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. A large part of those yards came after shaking off the first defender. "He's a great running back," said Homer-Center coach Ed Kowchuck. "We knew we had to stop him, and he just did whatever he wanted to do tonight. I think with him running the way he did up the middle on the draws, it opened up everything else for them." Magulick's effectiveness on the ground helped give senior quarterback Tim Brawley the time and space to complete 7 of 14 passes for 137 yards. In addition, Northern Cambria was able to spread the ball around in the backfield, with five other backs combining for 136 rushing yards. More telling, however, was the emergence of the Colts' defense. Northern Cambria had the conference's third-weakest defense, allowing 228 yards per game. The Colts held Homer-Center to just 134 total yards, including just 91 on the ground. Most of that success came from keying on fullback Ryan Buchner. Buchner finished with 75 yards on 15 carries, but a large Northern Cambria 32, Homer-Center 6 Turning point — Northern Cambria tackle Dave Hoover blocked a quick-kick attempt by Homer-Center quarterback Nick Jones. The Colts went on to score two unanswered touchdowns to start the second half. Key stats — Northern Cambria had 20 first downs to the Wildcats' nine. The Colts had 395 yards of total offense to Homer- Center's 134. Northern Cambria running back Leo Magulick rushed for 122 yards, and quarter- back Tim Brawley passed for 137 yards. Team records — Northern Cambria 4-0, Homer-Center 1-3. Quotable — Northern Cambria coach Frank Paronish: "I really believe this team has all of the tools necessary to move to the next level, and I think we saw that tonight." Next week — Northern Cambria welcomes Marion Center on Friday, and Homer-Center visits Laurel Valley on Saturday. MAGULICK chunk of that yardage came with the outcome already decided. "They were sending two or three linebackers in and keying on Ryan," Homer-Center coach Ed Kowchuck said. "Actually, after the first couple of plays, Ryan came over and said, 'You have to use me as a decoy tonight. We have to give it to our tailbacks,' and that's what we did. "I give Ryan a lot of credit for coming over, swallowing his pride and saying that someone else should get the bulk of the carries." Derek DeCarlo had 10 carries for 29 yards, and quarterback Nick Jones finished with minus- 13 yards rushing after taking two sacks. The Colts were able to break the game open late in the second quarter. Jim Lieb scored his second touchdown of the game on a 7-yard reverse to give Northern Cambria a 13-6 lead. Homer-Center's answering drive stalled at the Colts' 44-yard line. Facing fourth-and-3, the BRAWLEY Wildcats lined up in a passing formation. Jones took the snap from the shotgun and tried a quick punt, but Northern Cambria tackle Dave Hoover broke through to block and recover the kick. "We went for it on fourth down a couple times last week," Kowchuck said. "So we figured they'd come up and play us tight, and we could get one away and pin mem deep and start playing for field position. "Our line didn't block it as a punt play, they blocked it as a pass. Maybe they were a bit confused." The Colts didn't turn the block into points, but Homer-Center was unable to threaten, for the rest of the half. When the teams came out of the break, Northern Cambria scored two quick touchdowns to put the game out of reach. Magulick's first three carries of the second half were for 22, 18 and 25 yards. His 22-yard scamper put the Colts ahead 25-6 with just over six minutes left in the third quarter. Jorjii Bonates'ta scored three minutes earlier on a 15-yard end- around. Junior fullback Chaz Fleming closed out the scoring for the Colts with a 32-yard romp on a dive play. Northern Cambria scored on its first possession of the game. A third-down 42-yard pass from Brawley to Mike Lieb helped keep the drive alive. Then, facing fourth-and : goal from the 1-yard line, Jim Lieb took a weakside pitch and just managed to find the goal line. "That was crucial," Paronish said. "We needed a yard, and Jimmy Lieb put it into the end zone for us to set the tempo of the game. I think that was the first time (this season) that we came out and just drove it down for a score." Homer-Center answered the score following a muffed punt. The Wildcats recovered the ball at the Colts' 26, and Jones capped the six-play drive with a 3-yard keeper for Homer-Center's only points. "They were powerful, strong, and they played with a passion tonight," Kowchuck said of Northern Cambria. "I don't think we did, and obviously it showed with the missed tackles and the big plays they were able to break. "They came out to play They came out with a hunger. They want to win the conference this year, and they played like it tonight. They deserve all the credit in the world for coming out and playing the way they did." NOTES: Northern Cambria picked up 20 first downs to Homer-Center's nine. ... Jones picked up his third interception on a Ken Younger pass in the third quarter. ... Dave Kline and Bret Daisley recorded a sack apiece for the Colts. Rams romp over Comets By KEVIN TAYLOR Gazette Sports Writer KENWOOD — Hurricane Isabel wasn't supposed to hit Indiana^" County until early' this ! morning. Unfortunately for Penns Manor, the Comets got a sneak preview from Laurel Valley on Thursday night. Penns Manor was blown away by Laurel Valley, 41-0, in a Heritage Conference football game at Pat Corrigan Field. The game was moved from Friday to Thursday because of the impending storm. "We were a determined bunch of kids out there tonight. We made very few mistakes, and it was a nice win," said Laurel Valley coach Jerry Page. Laurel Valley wasted no time getting on the Scoreboard, with John Shetler racing 47 yards for a touchdown on the third play 1 LATROBE192, INDIANA 201 1 Lalrobe —192 ._ Statler 33, Porembka 38, Brant 39, '•Christiansen 40, Visconti 42 Indiana — 201 Merited 37, Griffin 37, Morandi 39, Wiley 44, Smith 44 VOLLEYBALL ' INDIANA RECREATION i CO-ED SOUTH LEAGUE Standings through Wednesday Sharps Paving 8-1, Diamond Pharmacy 6-3, Diamond Drugs 3-6.

All of the Rams' yards came on the ground, including 220 in the first half. Laurel Valley had ISfirst downs to Penns Manor's eight. Team records — Laurel Valley 3-1, Penns Manor 0-4. Quotable — Laurel Valley coach Jerry Page: "Our coaches prepared defensively for this game very well, and the offense was just great. This is about the most complete game that we've played. The intensity that we had on both sides of the ball made it a very complete win." Next week — Penns Manor plays host to LIgonier Valley on Friday, and Laurel Valley plays host to Homer-Center on Saturday. from scrimmage. The Rams scored a touchdown on each of their first four possessions to take a 28-0 halftime lead. Phil Fuller scored all three of his' touchdowns in the first half, the First coming on a 56-yard scamper following" Chris Smithley's interception of Penns Manor quarterback Evan Landis. Shetler finished the game with 132 yards on 10 carries, and Fuller totaled 119 yards on 15 carries. Both went over 100 yards rushing in the Srst half. The Rams were thrilled to get their ground game going. Last week, in a 9-6 loss to United, they gained just 70 yards. "We stressed during the week that we had to do a better job of running the football. That has been our trademark over the years," said Page. "Shetler broke one right away, and Fuller ran hard all night, and you know a lot of credit has to go to the offensive line because they were making some holes out there." Smithley, Laurel Valley's quarterback, attempted only one pass, an incompletion late in the first half. His team racked up ail 283 of its yards on the ground. "Our quarterback and center did a beautiful job with the exchange in the rain tonight, and that set the tone for our whole offense," said Page. Laurel Valley's execution of the little things led to Penns Manor's failure to get anything going on either side of the ball. The Comets gained just 114 total yards, including 93 on the ground. To Penns Manor's credit, the Comets played without standout receiver Jake Altemus for the second straight game, and Landis went down with an injury in the second quarter. "Anything that can go wrong with us does go wrong," said Penns Manor coach Dave Leasure. "We lose Jake, we lose Evan, and those two are our best offensive weapons. Most of the game we had three freshmen on the field." However, Leasure believes that Laurel VaJJey had a iittle some- Laurel Valley's Jon Shetler rushed for 132 yards on only 10 carries. (Gazette photo by Michael Henninger) thing extra on its side more important than X's and O's. "They're all pride, and that's why they win," said Leasure. "They believe they can win, and I mean right now. We're hoping we can win, and they know they can win. And that's a credit to Jerry and their guys." Penns Manor's only significant drive was derailed by Smithley's interception after the Comets had driven 33 yards on eight plays. That was the only time Penns Manor ventured into Laurel Valley territory. The Comets mounted a decent drive on Lheir last possession of the second quarter, but that was stopped when the first half ended. Leasure believes Laurel Valley had a great game as opposed to his team having a lousy game. "You have to take your hat off to Laurel Valley. They played a great game, and tilings didn't go so well for us, but I think our kids fought hard," said Leasure. "When things go wrong, that's all you can do. They're a great program, and to be honest, that's where we want to get to." It wasn't just the Laurel Valley offense that shined; the defense was outstanding in earning the shutout. 'The Rams defense forced three turnovers and recovered two of Penns Manor's seven fumbles. "Our coaches prepared defensively for this game very well, and the offense was just great," said Page. "This is about the most complete game that we've played. The intensity that we had on both sides of the ball made it a very complete win." The Laurel Valley special teams made some noise as well. Ryan Perry returned the second-half kickoff 74 yards for a touchdown, and Shetler returned a punt 32 yards late in the third quarter. At 3-1, the Rams are right in the middle of the Heritage Conference race, but Page knows his team still has a ways to go. "We've got five tough games ahead of us," said Page. "The old cliche is that you take it one game at a time, and our main concern is our game next week against a tough Homer-Center team." 2003 Chevrolet Malibu Silver. 17K. Pwr. Windows Locks.
