CLEAR SPRING - The Williamsport football team ended its season on a winning note Friday night, blanking MVAL Antietam opponent Clear Spring, 33-0.

"A great way to end the season," an emotional Williamsport coach Adrian Custer said. "We have come a long way since early in the season. We had a good group of seniors, but everyone responded and improved as the season progressed."

While Williamsport (4-6, 2-3) ended its season on a successful note, Clear Spring completed an 0-10 (0-5) campaign and was shut out in its last four games.

The Wildcats again displayed a balanced offensive attack. Five different players hit the scoring column as Custer used numerous combinations on offense.


"That was what was great about this team, we didn't have to depend on one player on offense," Custer said. "And our defense really improved the second half of the season."

Williamsport set the tone for the evening when Kyle McDannell raced into the end zone from 2 yards out with 5:56 remaining in the first quarter, capping a 12-play drive.

Senior Adam Cook directed the Wildcats and Custer was pleased with the quarterback's effort.

"He ran the offense well and we moved the football all night," Custer said. "As for the seniors, it was a special group, another chapter in their lives."

Touchdown runs by Mike Russ, Kyle Cunningham and Scott Bailey extended the Wildcats' lead to 27-0 by halftime. Scott Haupt scored Williamsport's final touchdown on a 2-yard run in the third quarter.
