UNION — Muhlenberg rang up 270 yards rushing on 39 carries, with one player topping the 100-yard mark and another within reach of triple digits.
And that was just what Muhlenberg did in the first half of Friday’s game with Daniel Boone. But it was enough for the Muhls to establish a dominating tone, and eventual 52-19 victory, in the Berks Football League Section One matchup.
Muhlenberg’s backfield tandem of Frank German and Ben Ortiz combined to account for 313 of the visitors’ 369 yards, and all but two of its seven touchdowns, as it pursues a berth in the postseason playoffs. The Mules (3-3, 5-4 overall) went on to amass 369 of their 431 on the ground, Ortiz finishing with a game-high 190 and German 123.
“We’re a two-back system,” Muhlenberg head coach Rich Kolka said after seeing his team rebound from last week’s loss to Reading in a big way. “We play at a high tempo, and we’re fortunate to have two good backs who do something.”(For complete story, click here...)
