On the first cold night of the football season, York Catholic stayed hot, using a dominant offense and shutdown passing defense to earn a 41-12 win on the road against Biglerville on Friday.
“The kids played well tonight,” said York Catholic head coach Eric Depew. “We got a little sloppy at the end, but it’s a ‘W.’”
Irish quarterback Daniel Yokemick led the way, accounting for 427 total yards of offense, including 283 in the first half. The senior quarterback passed for 275 yards and three scores, and he added another 152 yards on the ground. In all, Yokemick had a hand in five of York Catholic's six scores.
His favorite target by far was senior wide receiver Brendan Kennedy, who hauled in eight passes for 209 receiving yards, including three long touchdown passes.
“The loaded the box on us, and we threw the ball well,” said Depew. “I’d like to see us rush the ball better, but the passing game was open.”
Biglerville struggled mightily to generate any kind of passing offense, but did find some success on the ground, racking up 219 rushing yards. Seven players carried the ball for the Canners' rushing atttack.
Senior running back Ivan Manzo was the Canners' workhorse, carrying 12 times for 55 yard, but they relied on junior Miles Hughes for the big play. He broke free for a 51-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter.
“They’re just a better football team,” said Biglerville head coach Alex Ramos. “I wanted our guys to not back down and fight through the whole game. I’m proud of our guys. At no time did I see them hang their heads.”
The Irish have a big game next week as they take on Bermudian Springs for the YAIAA Division III lead. Both teams are 6-1 overall and 4-0 in the division.
“We gotta be ready next week. We gotta bring our ‘A’ game,” said Depew. “We gotta have a good week of practice and we gotta stop the run.”
Biglerville, meanwhile, is still winless on the season, now sitting at 0-7, 0-4 in the division. They face another big test next week against Littlestown (6-1, 3-1) on the road.
“We’re young and inexperienced,” Ramos said. “You go through peaks and valleys and right now we’re in a valley. We just gotta continue to work on becoming a better football team and eliminate mistakes.”
