Bald Eagle holds on for the win in a defensive battle with visiting Penns Valley 14-0. What a game these two teams put on tonight in Wingate, Pa. Neither team was able to put anything together to move the ball as both defenses shined through a quarter and a half. Bald Eagle would finally put the first points of the game up, driving the ball with a series of wildcat plays, they marched 96 yards setting up the ball on the 2 yard line, with Garrett Burns scoring from 2 yards out on a quarterback keeper. Extra point by Kaden Burn was good, with 53 seconds left in the half, it was Bald Eagle 7, Penns Valley 0. Burns ran for 279 yards on 32 carries
Penns Valley would fumble the ball on the ensuing kickoff, giving the Eagles the ball on the Penns Valley 27 yard line. Two plays later, Bald Eagle would score again on a 9 yard pass play from Carson Nagle to Camron Watkins, extra point by Kaden Burns was good, with 23 seconds remaining in the half , it was Bald Eagle 14, Penns Valley 0.
Penns Valley’s Quarterback, Rylee Brungart would take a knee with 23 seconds remaining to end the half. Bald Eagle received the ball to start the 2nd half. Tfirst play from scrimmage would find Bald Eagle’s Carson Nagle throwing an interception to Penns Valley’s Ty Watson on the 27 yard line. Penns Valley couldn’t get anything going, turning the ball over on downs. This was one of the best defensive games I’ve seen this season, with neither team giving up much yardage to end the 3rd quarter.
On Bald Eagle’s first possesion to start the 4th quarter, would find Penns Valley’s Colin Niewinski stripping the ball away from Bald eagle’s quarterback Carson Nagle and recovered by Penns Valley’s Gavin Ryan on the 48 yard line. The Rams would go 3 and out, punting away with 4:42 left in the game. The Eagles would drive down the field, but come up short of another score with time running out on the clock. This game was for the Iron Bell, which these two teams have traded back and forth, since the early 70’s. Penn s Valley had been in possesion of the bell, after a 20-0 win in 2020. Next week will see Penns Valley at home against Bellefonte and Bald Eagle travels to Tyrone.
