UNION — There was plenty to celebrate at Daniel Boone.
On the occasion of Friday’s football game with Pottsville, the school held its annual Homecoming ceremonies. It also enshrined the two newest members to its sports Wall of Fame at halftime.
As for the football game ... well, a 26-8 romp over the Crimson Tide was the cherry on the chocolate cake of a festive night for anyone partial to Blazer blue.
“The kids deserved this,” Boone head coach Bill Parks said after a raucous postgame huddle celebrating the team’s second straight Berks Football League Section One win. “They worked hard all week.”
Big-strike scoring plays were key to Boone (2-2, 2-5 overall) effectively negating a running game that got Pottsville (0-4, 1-6) an early lead. Kyle Myers figured in on three touchdown plays covering almost 140 yards, before Xavier Smith — a hero of the Blazer defense with timely fumble recoveries — scored once to cap his own 130 yards’ rushing and receiving.
