POTTSGROVE — Pottsgrove’s Amir Brunson proved too much for Schuylkill Valley to handle Friday night.
Brunson took three of his first six touches for touchdowns — two rushing and one kick return — to help the Falcons to a 35-0 home win over the Panthers in a non-league game.
The junior running back finished with 128 yards rushing and two touchdowns on eight carries in addition to an 86-yard kick return touchdown.
Falcons quarterback Ryan Sisko tossed for 61 yards and touchdown throws to Tyler Kaufman and Riley Delp.
The Falcons (2-0) fumbled on their first offensive possession and had a long Brunson touchdown run called back on their second. The Panthers (0-3) couldn’t take advantage as the two teams ended the first quarter tied 0-0.
Schuylkill Valley wasn’t as lucky containing the hosts from that point on. Brunson broke off a 64-yard touchdown run with 8:29 to play in the second quarter.
On the Falcons’ next possession, a great catch by Delp and an SV penalty set up a 13-yard touchdown run by Brunson.
Brunson opened the second half with the kick return touchdown to make it 21-0 before touchdown passes by Sisko had the Falcons up 35-0 heading to the fourth.
Pottsgrove bottled the Panthers up for just 124 yards in the game, compared to 253 for the Falcons. Schuylkill Valley’s longest play came on a 26-yard pass from Drew Campbell to Kyle Spotts.
Campbell completed 6-of-17 for 47 yards and ran 13 times for 28 yards while switching between running back and QB with Michael Goad.
Spotts led the Panthers with 31 yards receiving, while Kaufman and Delp finished with 29 and 26 yards receiving, respectively, for the Falcons.
