Whether it was offense, defense or special teams, Lampeter-Strasburg asserted their dominance from the get go over Donegal with a 55-0 statement. “Gary Morrison, our Defensive Coordinator has been doing a great job” Head Coach, Victor Ridneour, said “Our Defense has been the heart and soul of our team”.The Pioneers started things off right away recovering a Cody Stough fumble at the 29 yard line. A few plays later Senior Kicker (all league candidate) Andrew Reidenbaugh drilled a field goal, putting them up 3-0. The very next possession, not even 4 minutes into the game, Donegal Quarterback recorvered another fumble in the end zone resulting in a safety 5-0. After a big return on the ensuing kickoff by Peyton Cunningham, Giovanni Malatesta dove in for the score making it 12-0 Pioneers. The fourth fumble of the quarter (2 lost) was recovered deep in the Indians territory and this time Quarterback, Berkely Wagner, hit play-making receiver, Beau Heyser, from the 25 (19-0). Donegal, who would not record a first down until the fourth quarter, could not get their Wing T offense going all night. Number one ranked Lampeter Strasburg was as advertised. Nick Delgrande, Evan Sellars and Wagner were all over the field holding the Indians to 64 total yards. While the Indians did finally get a stop on defense with a 4th and goal stand, they coughed up their FIFTH fumble and the Pioneers had the ball back at the 12. Two plays later Maletesta found paydirt for his second score of the night, the PAT was wide, leaving the game at 25-0. The rout was on as Wagner would find Brayden Adams from the 42, making it 32-0 Pioneers. Sophomore Carson Coleman took his first carry of the game in for 6 (39-0 LS) and Evan Sellars would pile it on with a safety, tackling Baughman in the endzone. It was 41-0 at halftime, Wagner and company did not even need to step on the field for the third quarter. “We just have been flying around the ball, forcing turnovers, creating havoc for the other team” Berkeley Wagner said “It is just good complimentary football”.The Pioneers (6-1, 2-0) added two more touchdowns in the second half with the mercy rule in effect, putting the final at 55-0. Lampeter Strasburg, who recorded their third shutout of the season, travel to Garden Spot (2-4, 1-0) next week. Donegal (4-2, 0-1) will have to regroup quickly as they hit the road again to face the Ephrata Mountaineers (5-2, 2-0).
