Wilson Boro- Both Wilson and Bangor came into Saturday afternoon’s Schuylkill/Colonial League contest vying the fourth an final District XI 4A playoff spot. The Slaters, using a potent and punishing running attack, got the best of the Warriors to the tune of a 37-6 victory at Smith Field.

Bangor received the opening kickoff and drove 65 yards using up over five minutes off the clock with Striba diving in from a yard out to open the barrage of points 6-0. The two-point conversion failed leaving the score at 6-0.

Wilson would put their only points on homecoming afternoon when running back Damian Simpson scored from 4 yards out tying the game at six. Simpson rushed for 85 yards on 11 touches and the one score.

The Bangor defense pitched a shutout the remainder of the contest as well as forcing four Wilson turnovers, including three interceptions and harassed quarterback Cayden Stem all afternoon and sacking him 6 times. Jacob Weaver recorded four of those from his defensive end position. Stem completed 9 of 16 passes for only 96 yards.

Striba, scored the second of his four touchdowns on the afternoon from 13 yards out and converting the two-point conversion on a shovel pass to Gabe Woolverton making the score 14-6. Striba rushed for 180 yards on 22 carries, while completing 3 of 4 passes for 33 yards.

Special teams got in on the scoring for the Slaters as the defense pinned Wilson back near the own goal line. A high snap on a punt attempt by Stem was blocked which Stem recovered but could escape the end zone resulting in a safety and a 16-6 advantage for the visitors.

Slaters running back Kael Godshalk picked up 107 yards on 25 carries and a score as well.

“I wanted our defense to really play well and when I got those sacks, I was very happy after the first one I just wanted more” Weaver said after the game.
