So how did we do Hollidaysburg?

I saw Selinsgrove DESTROY Mount Carmel last night, 41-0. Could have been MUCH uglier. Seals look really good... should win AAA.

No 'us' game for me tonight. My Alma Mater vs. my employer. Should be fun.

The Hollidaysburg Golden Tigers Open up at 0-1. NEXT WEEK: @ South Western
QBs give big boost to State
By Todd Irwin

STATE COLLEGE - Worry about State College star and Penn State recruit Alex Kenney too much, and quarterback Dom Mills will burn you on the option.

Mills and the three other QBs the Little Lions used Friday night in the season opener left Hollidaysburg with second-degree burns.

Kenney got his 120 yards on six carries and had three touchdowns, including two 54-yard runs, but the State College QBs amassed 246 of the the Little Lions' 401 rushing yards and scored three touchdowns in a 57-6 rout of the Golden Tigers at Memorial Field.

"They ran tough. Both of them [Mills and second-stringer Matt Mazzara] did a nice job," State College coach Al Wolski said. "Even the younger kids, when they got in, did a nice job carrying the ball and making some things happen. It was an opportunity to get a lot of people a chance to play.

"We didn't expect it to be this lopsided. We were hoping we would be able to win convincingly. Our younger kids were hungry. You wish sometimes they wouldn't score. We didn't try to run up the score. They just played hard."

The Tigers were opportunistic early after the Lions fumbled on two of their first three plays. They got the ball at the State College 38 after the first fumble, and on third-and-2, QB James Muir scampered 28 yards to the 2. On the next play, Luke Rhodes scored.

Nick Shrift recovered a Bryan Schmidt fumble on the Little Lion 40 on State's next play, but the drive stalled when Muir was sacked on fourth down.

"We thought we could create some turnovers," Hollidaysburg coach John Barton said, "and we thought they would turn it over from what we saw in their scrimmages. We only had six points out of those, and with four turnovers in the first half, you have to come away with more than six."

It was all State College after that. Kenney scored on a 4-yard run with 2:56 left in the first quarter, and Zak Khayat, one of three kickers used by the Little Lions, kicked the extra point.

Mills, who ran for 109 yards in the first half, showed off his running ability on the next series, gaining 32 yards on a 48-yard drive that was helped by a Tiger personal foul. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder finished off by sneaking in from the 1.

He didn't have to run on the next possession as Kenney took the end around on the first play 54 yards to the end zone, getting a key block receiver Ben Sallade near the Tiger sideline.

"I thought our kids did a lot of good things in the first half, made a couple mistakes," Barton said. "In the second half, we got a little bit worn down, and their playmakers made some plays."

The Lions took a 21-6 lead into the locker room at halftime, but before all the State College band members could get seated from their tribute to the late Michael Jackson, it was 28-6 as Kenney took the end around again 54 yards to the end zone.

"He does a nice job," Wolski said. "The way he runs, it's tough for people to catch him."

After a Schmidt TD, Jeff Moyer picked off a Muir pass and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown to put the mercy rule in effect.

After QB Josh Weakland scored on a 10-yard run, the Lions added a safety when the ball was snapped over Muir's head and he was tackled in the end zone. Maurice Allen, the Lions' fourth QB, finished off the scoring with a 9-yard run with 1:44 left.

"Overall, there were some positives," Barton said, "but there are some things that we need to correct."

Hollidaysburg Golden Tigers are 0-2 NEXT WEEK: Next Friday at West Chester Henderson
Tigers go scoreless after half
By Brian Shea, For the Mirror

HANOVER - When Hollidaysburg senior John Muir intercepted a desperation pass by South Western on the final play of the first half Friday night, the Tigers looked poised to take a 14-0 lead into halftime.

But on a rainy night in York County, nothing was for certain.

Muir coughed up the ball trying to return the pick, and South Western's Kyle King scooped up the loose ball on the 15-yard line and scooted in for the touchdown.

The play only cut Hollidaysburg's lead in half, but that was all South Western needed to get the ball rolling toward a 34-14 win.

"The big thing we tried to emphasize was that we felt we had played a really a great first half and we were still in the lead. It was one mistake,'' Tigers coach John Barton said. "We did a couple of dumb things on that drive. If we don't do some of those things, we'll be OK. Eliminate those mistakes, play smart, play confident and let's go out and get it done.''

Halfway through the third quarter, the game was tied. Less than three minutes later, South Western had a lead it wouldn't relinquish as the Tigers headed toward an 0-2 start.

"You get a penalty. You drop passes. Where we needed a spark, we couldn't get that spark from someone or something. That kind of stuff just wears on you, and it came back to bite us,'' Barton said.

The roles had been reversed in the opening two quarters. Muir sprinted 17 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter to cap a 65-yard drive which started when a blitz forced South Western quarterback Ian Smith to fumble. Muir also had a 16-yard run on a key third-down play on that drive.

On the opening drive of the second quarter, South Western muffed the snap on a punt attempt, setting Hollidaysburg up on the Mustang 10-yard line. Three plays later, Luke Rhodes, who finished with 71 yards rushing, bowled through the line for the score. Muir scored the two-point conversion for a 14-0 lead.

Then disaster struck. The two teams traded punts before South Western tried one last drive to score. The Mustangs only gained three positive yards by themselves, but were helped by a pass interference call and a late hit against Hollidaysburg.

That set the scene for King's touchdown. The Tigers could not grab the momentum back in the second half and started to fall victim to big plays by South Western, which scored four times after the break. The home team racked up 231 of its 300 yards of total offense after the half with four plays of 30 yards or more.

Even with the loss, Barton said he would try and keep his players focused on what they accomplished.

"The thing we talk about is, let's see improvement. Winning is what we want, but in the same vein, we want to look at it and see something positive,'' he said. "I think there is improvement. I think we were better than we were a week ago.''
