Reynoso, Wilson rumble past Central York
WEST LAWN – Central York was never able to string together several positive plays in a row on Friday night, losing to Wilson, 55-23, in the District 3 Class 6A quarterfinals.
Bulldogs running back Ignacion Reynoso ran for 285 yards and six touchdowns in the first half to help Wilson (10-1) take a 48-9 lead at halftime. His scores went for distances of 3, 2, 44, 29, 22 and 60 yards.
“Stopping number 28 [Reynoso] in the backfield before he could get going was the big message this week,” said Central York head coach Josh Oswalt, who also coached against Wilson in the district playoffs two years ago with Carlisle.
Wilson's other first-half touchdown was on a 21-yard pass from Connor Uhrig to Foday Jalloh.
Central York went three-and-out on its first three possessions, and had trouble punting into a strong wind.
“If I could have it back, I would have deferred so we could get the wind,” Oswalt said. “I didn't think the wind would last that long, and we went into it the whole first quarter.”
There were a couple of bright spots for the Panthers (7-4) in the first half, but each was soon answered by a big play by Wilson.
Down 21-0, Central York's Carter Luckenbaugh punted, and the ball was downed at the Wilson 6-yard line. Two plays later, Kollin Vaught tackled Justin Weller in the end zone on a jet sweep to make it 21-2 with 43 seconds left in the opening quarter.
After getting the free kick near midfield, the Panthers fumbled the ball back to Wilson on the next to last play of the opening period. Two plays into the second quarter, Reynoso ran for his 44-yard touchdown and a 28-2 lead.
On the next possession, Panthers quarterback Cabe Pribula completed his first pass, a 54-yard connection with Eddie Santiago down the left sideline, setting up the Panthers at the 1-yard line. Hunter Werner ran it in on the next play to get the visitors within 28-9 with 10:11 left in the second quarter.
But any momentum from that drive was wiped out when the Bulldogs returned the kickoff to the Central York 35-yard line. Three plays after that, Reynoso scored on his 29-yard run for a 35-9 lead with 8:29 remaining in the half.
Wilson scored touchdowns on its first five possessions, and when the Panthers defense did stop the Bulldogs and force a punt, Central York muffed the kick right back. That led to a 22-yard touchdown run for Reynoso and a 42-9 lead with 4:39 left in the half.
“It was a tough task, but I thought we had a better matchup then how it turned out,” Oswalt said.
Central York had seven first downs in the first half, before the mercy rule came into effect. Four of them were on pass interference penalties against Wilson.
The second half opened with a 92-yard kickoff return by Justin Weller to put Wilson up 55-19 just 14 seconds into the third period.
Noreaga Goff added a touchdown for Central York with 9:53 left in the fourth quarter on a 4-yard run. Goff led the Panthers in rushing with 74 yards on 23 carries.
That score was followed up by a 25-yard fumble return by Justin Paneto to make it 55-23 with 8:44 to go.
Wilson will host CD East, a 13-7 winner against Red Lion, in the district semifinals next Friday.
