The Waynesboro Indians were unlucky during scheduling as they were cut short of one home game they normally would have had. That did not stop the seniors from going out with a bang and taking control of the Mid Penn Colonial.
Waynesboro (4-2, 3-0) won big against West Perry (2-4, 2-1) with a final of 31-12. Waynesboro is now in control of its own future as far as the Colonial Division is concerned, remaining the only unbeaten team.
On a perfect night for football, both Waynesboro and West Perry came out ready to play. West Perry received the opening kick off and took the ball quickly down the field for a touchdown.
Things were not looking good for the Indians as they were unable to stop a potent aerial attack from the Mustangs, as quarterback Dominic Salinetro went 7 for 10 with 70 yards passing in the first quarter.
That was all the Indians defense would allow him. The defense buckled down and forced Salinetro to 7 for 21 and only 80 yards the remainder of the game.
Senior runners Mason Frampton and Tom Drumstra were the brighest stars on the field for ‘Boro, rushing for 136 and 118 yards, respectively, with Frampton scoring twice and Drumstra adding a score as well.
With Waynesboro going into halftime with a strong lead, West Perry began to put together a drive that was cut short by Waynesboro’s Adam Wertz, who had a leaping interception that he returned for 10 yards, which led to a touchdown with 6:30 remaining in the 3rd.
Waynesboro truly put the game away with the following defensive play that was again intercepted by Quentin Gaskill with 3:34 remaining in the 3rd.
Waynesboro is now in control of the Mid Penn Colonial as the season winds down. They have 3 more games to be played, all on the road against teams that have already lost in conference play.
Waynesboro hits the road next week to take on the Big Spring Bulldogs at Big Spring High School at 7 p.m.
