Comets On Fire -Rout Dawgs 35-0

Written by: on Friday, October 23rd, 2020



The Crestwood Comets defeated the Berwick Bulldogs 35-0 Friday night at Crispin Field in Berwick. The undefeated Comets launched their rockets early on the opening drive. The Mountain Top powerhouse needed only five plays to score when QB Ryan Petrosky ran for a seven yard touchdown making it 6-0. Sure foot kicker Alex Romanoski ,who would have  crosshairs between the gold post all night, made it 7-0 with 9:05 left in the first quarter. 


The Bulldogs came back with their best drive of the evening only to be stopped on the one yard by a tenacious Comet defense.  Crestwood  took over and on the third play of the series and  Crestwood exploded with an 80 yard touchdown pass, Petrosky to Brenden Demarzo. And with 1:11 on the clock in the 1st quarter, Crestwood led 14-0


Berwick would have another hope of  making this a close game squelched when QB Ben Knorr rolled out, broke tackle and ran for 43 yards to the Crestwood’s 20, only to have the Dwags engines  stall and a penalty put them in a punting position. 


The first quarter ended  with the Comets in possession and a 14-0 lead. 


The second quarter saw the Comets put together a systematic drive that ended up with a 12 yard touchdown run by RB Jimmy Hawley.  Berwick would eat  much of the clock up in the second quarter before punting. The Comets got the ball and ran only two plays before retiring into the locker room with a 21-0 lead.


The third quarter was as strange as I ever witness. The Bulldogs got the opening kickoff deep in their own territory. A series of penalties put them on five-yard line. They made a crucial third down conversion that was short- lived and was force to punt. The punt was blocked by DL Ryan Harding recovered by LB Logan Arnold who returned it 32 yards into the end zone.  Laser toe Romanoskis extra point was good and the Comets took a commanding lead 21-0.


Remarkably, Berwick would have possession the entire third quarter. They got to the one-yard line again, only to find a penalty and a subsequent interception by DB Noah Schultz spoiled any hopes of the Dawgs avoiding a shutout.


The Maytag repairman saw more action than the Crestwood punter as the Comets found no need to punt the entire game. They put together one more drive that culminated in a 21 yard pass from Petrosky (who ended up with 190 yards passing and 70 yards rushing) to Arnold making the score 34-0 Crestwood. The extra point was good and Comets remained undefeated with a 35-0 victory.
