Bears, Giants win Jr. Football games



By MIKE SIRBAUGH / Staff Writer


Great Scott!

Marcus Scott took advantage of every opportunity afforded him by his B-Team Williamsport Bear teammates Tuesday.

Scott carried the ball 10 times for 200 yards and scored all four of the Bear touchdowns in a 27-6 victory over the Clear Spring Chargers. He also converted on the Bears' two conversion attempts to account for all 27 points. He even had one touchdown of 43 yards called back on a clipping penalty.

Scott scored on runs of 23, 60, 56 and eight yards with some terrific blocking, a few sweet moves that allowed him to slip numerous tackles and breakaway speed that gave him the outside the whole game.

Kenny Shanholtz rushed nine times for 55 yards and scored the Chargers' touchdown on a 14-yard jaunt around right end.

The Giants got a complete team effort and spread their scoring around with four different players finding the end zone, all but one going wide to the left side of the field.

Andrew Hart took a pitch and went left and long on his first touch of the season. Hart didn't stop until he was in the end zone 75 yards away.

On the Giants' next possession, Neil Forsythe took a pitch on a fourth-and-23, broke left and ran it 63 yards for the score. Later, Forsythe broke one up the middle and rambled 41 yards for another touchdown. He finished with 99 yards on seven carries.

B-Teamer Edmund Dorsey found the left side to his liking also. He ran 34 yards for a touchdown on another pitch left.

Jarron Suttle scored twice on runs of 31 yards and 28 yards. The first came on an inside reverse to the left side that he cut back in nicely.

On his next touch, Suttle took a pitch to the right for a 30-yard score but a penalty nullified the effort. He promptly reverted back to left side on the next play for his second score.

The Giants' final score came when Forsythe tackled a Packer ballcarrier in the end zone for a safety.

But the Packers were game, especially Kevin Breslin, and they came out firing for the final quarter.

Facing a fourth-and-eight from his own 15-yard line, Breslin ran wide left for a 14 yard gain and a first down. After an incomplete pass, Breslin took a handoff, cut just outside his left end and raced 71 yards down the left sideline untouched for the score.
