Wyomissing defeated Daniel Boone 41-14 Saturday in a season-opening high school football game at Birdsboro, thanks to contributions in the running game from three of their top backs.
Drew Eisenhower scored two touchdowns, and Thomas Grabowski and Amory Thompson each one for the Spartans in a game that was postponed a day because of Friday night’s thunderstorms.
Eisenhower scored Wyomissing’s first touchdown of the season on a 5-yard run in the first quarter.
Later in the quarter, linebacker Jackson Miller blocked a Daniel Boone punt, giving the Spartans the ball in the Blazers’ end of the field. Wyomissing extended its lead with a two-play, 31-yard drive that ended with a touchdown run by Grabowski.
Daniel Boone scored on its next drive, with A.J. Hofer finding the end zone on a 5-yard run in which he recovered his own fumble.
Wyomissing nearly extended its first-half lead with a last-second field goal, but time expired just before the snap.
The Spartans created separation early in the third quarter with a 50-yard touchdown run by Amory Thompson. Thompson finished with 77 yards and the touchdown on five carries.
Wyomissing scored on its next two drives, with a 5-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ben Zechman to running back Charles McIntyre, and another score on a 7-yard run by Eisenhower. Eisenhower carried nine times for 55 yards and the two touchdowns. Grabowski led the Spartans in carries, finishing with 13 for 77 yards and a score.
The Spartans also got help from running back William Delp, who scored on a 43-yard run in the fourth quarter to make it 41-7.
Daniel Boone scored one last time in the fourth on a 5-yard pass from quarterback Dean Rotter to Draven Klick.
