Barons run over Lebanon Football
Manheim Central junior QB Colin Fry got a chance to rest his right arm last Friday night.
The Barons’ running backs, however, had a busy night against Lebanon.
On a night when Central threw just one pass, their ball carriers piled up 575 yards on the ground while leading the Barons to a 69-7 Section Two drubbing of the Cedars in Lebanon.
The victory kept Manheim Central on pace with Cocalico and Lampeter-Strasburg atop the Section standings, all with a 2-0 record. Something will have to give this Friday night, however, when the Barons (4-1 overall) host the Eagles (4-1 overall) in a key showdown at Elden Rettew Field.
Central’s rushing attack appeared to be in solid shape going into that game with four different players breaking the 100-yard mark. Junior Marc Royer ran the ball nine times for a game-high 162 yards and two touchdowns, Fry added 125 rushing yards and two TD’s on five attempts, junior Ian Hanselman gained 110 yards and scored three TD’s on 12 carries, and senior Justin Greene added 104 yards and a TD on eight carries.
The Barons wasted little time establishing their ground game, with Royer and Hanselman scoring both of their touchdowns in the opening stanza to help give Manheim Central a 27-0 lead after one. Royer, who has a team-high 370 rushing yards through five games, scored on runs of 33 and 55 yards, while Hanselman reached paydirt from two and eight yards out.
Fry scored on a 10-yard keeper in the second quarter, which coupled with Evan Stauffer’s PAT, made it 34-0 before the Cedars scored their only touchdown of the night on Jeremy De La Cruz’s 55-yard pass reception from QB Mark Pyles.
But Greene’s two-yard scoring run and Fry’s 59-yard keeper pushed the Barons’ lead to 48-7 at the half.
Taylor Geib joined the scoring parade with a 31-yard touchdown run in the third, and then in the fourth quarter, Hanselman and Dan Weiderrecht added TD runs of 21 and 36 yards, respectively, to complete the scoring. More BARONS, page B-4
