The Waynesboro Indians opened Mid- Penn Colonial conference with a home game against the Shippensburg Greyhounds. Shippensburg came into the game undefeated at 3-0 while Waynesboro was sitting at 1-2.
Waynesboro did not have much luck throughout the game. The Indian’s were unable to establish a passing game, turned the ball over more than the hounds, and totaled nearly 100 yards in penalties.
What Boro was able to do that Ship could not was play hard-nose, old school football. Boro ran the ball hard and often and played top notch defense.
Boro had success running on the outside with Mason Frampton, inside with Tom Drumstra, and keepers with Isaiah Kershner, who had 88, 115, and 78 yards respectively.
Defensively, Boro was hitting on all cylinders. The line was able to repeatedly presser Ships quarterback. Linebackers played tough and filled running gaps. The secondaries locked down the wide receivers.
The Indian’s have been riding their defense so far this year and its clear that they are relying on their running game to win games, but what we have seen with a 2-2 record, they need more of a variation as the season goes on.
Next week Waynesboro (1-0, 2-2) travels to Northern York (1-2) to play Polar bears at 7 PM for another Mid- Penn Colonial match up.
