Conestoga 49, Owen J. Roberts 21

By Steven Leitzel

BERWYN — Most coaches will say the evolution of offensive football is an ongoing process, one that reaches maturation as the leaves change color. Seldom do teams leave the “Dog Days” of summer behind to hit the ground running.
Such was not the case for the Pioneers of Conestoga High School as they downed a feisty Owen J. Roberts, 49-21, on a humid night at Teamer Field. The two teams combined for 656 yards and 28 first downs in a rare opening-night shootout.
“You never know how 15-, 16-, 17-year-old kids are going to react their first time in this setting,” said Conestoga head coach John Vogan. “I’m very proud of them. They came out and played very, very well. Did we make some mistakes? Yeah, we did. But there’s nothing that happened tonight that we can’t correct.”
