Pottstown 41, Penn Wood 18

By Jeff Stover

POTTSTOWN — You could amass a long list of positives compiled by Pottstown on Friday.
But Brett Myers compressed the tally sheet from his team’s 41-18 romp over Penn Wood into one basic facet.

“The kids lined up and played good, hard football,” Myers said after watching his club dominate its guests from Delaware County. “We had a rough week of practice. They were ready.”

Pottstown made quick work of the Patriots in this one ... and on several counts. Scoring on all but one of their six first-half possessions, the Trojans (1-1) built a 35-point lead in the first half. That brought the “running clock” into play for the entire second half, limiting any comeback bid PW (0-2) may have attempted to mount.

To their credit, the Pats got three scores in the second half. But they came when the locals began substituting to a greater extent, answering the visitors’ first TD with a final one on their next series.
