Ground game shines for Berlin

BERLIN — Berlin Brothersvalley churned out 470 rushing yards as a team with Drew Glotfelty’s 210 yards setting the pace in the Mountaineers’ 55-8 win over Ferndale on Friday at Snyder of Berlin Athletic Complex.  

The Mountaineers chugged on to 3-0, while the Yellow Jackets fell to 0-2. Ferndale will complete it’s Week 1 contest at Conemaugh Valley on Tuesday.

Glotfelty scored three times with quarterback Blake Miller rushing for 94 yards on eight carries. Six different Berlin rushers picked up at least 40 yards in the win – one that featured a number of quick strikes by the hosts.

“I think we only ran 14 or 15 plays in the first half,” Mountaineers coach Doug Paul said. “There were a lot of quick scores. We wanted to work on our passing game a bit but getting all those quick scores didn’t help. I think we were still 3 for 6 for 60 yards.”

Braden Fochtman opened the scoring with a 53-yard run with Levi Bowser connecting on the first of seven point-after kicks. Glotfelty ran the lead to 14-0 later in the quarter, dashing in from 23 yards away.

The Yellow Jackets replied when Chad Eisenhuth and receiver Isaiah Sajatovich connected on a 40-yard score. The pair also accounted for the two-point conversion play.

Glotfelty rushed in from 67 yards away to make it 21-8 before Miller scored from 26 and 47 yards away to push the lead to 35-8 at halftime.

On his final carry, Glotfelty scored on a 9-yard run in the third quarter. E.J. Custer (37 yards) and Fochtman (9 yards) each scored a touchdown in the second half as well.  

Berlin travels to Conemaugh Valley next week while Ferndale hosts Shade, both games are slated for Saturday.
