H.S. football notebook: Danville, Bloomsburg get their kicks

By The Daily Item

You would be hard-pressed to find a better display of kicking in high school football than Friday night's game in Danville, a 31-23 Ironmen win over Bloomsburg.

The teams played for their rivalry game's Judy Price Trophy, and one-third of the game's points came from the kickers' feet, including the last 10 in a row.

Panthers opened the scoring with a 33-yard field goal in the first quarter. He booted 20- and 22-yarders in the fourth quarter when Bloomsburg drives stalled in the red zone. He also hit made a pair of extra-point kicks.

Danville junior Shayne Riley kicked nothing but PATs for three quarters, four in all, as the Ironmen forged a 28-17 lead.

In the fourth quarter, however, after Harmon's second field goal made it a one-score game (28-20), Danville coach Jim Keiser allowed Riley to attempt a 39-yard field goal.

Riley, whose season-long through eight games was 34 yards, made the kick with plenty to spare for a comfortable 11-point lead. He has made six of seven field goal attempts this season.

BANNER NIGHT: At halftime of Upper Dauphin's 27-0 win over Line Mountain on Friday, members of four former Trojans league championship teams were honored with a midfield ceremony.

The 1968, 1973, 1978 and 1986 teams were commemorated with a banner for each year, all of which will hang at the Trojans' stadium in Elizabethville.

Although the Trojans will not be able to add a Tri-Valley League title banner to their collection this season, they currently occupy the fourth and final playoff spot in District 3 Class A with a game against Millersburg remaining.
