Rams, Comets matchup highlights Week 7


Bedford at Somerset

This inter-county rivalry is one of the marquee match ups of Week 7. Each team is 5-1.

Bedford’s lone loss came in Week 3 at Richland (53-3). Since then, the Bisons have rolled over Bishop McCort (49-0), Westmont (54-10) and Johnstown (48-33).

Somerset won its first five games and nearly pulled off an upset at state third-ranked Richland before falling 28-24 when the Rams scored with 14.1 seconds left last week at Herlinger Field.

Somerset sophomore quarterback Dylan Barnes has filled in for injured veteran starter Tanner Stull the past three weeks. Barnes has completed 50 percent of his passes and thrown for 272 yards (13 of 26) and three touchdowns against no interceptions.

Barnes is just as effective on the ground, carrying 47 times for 289 yards, a 6.2 average with three touchdowns. Bryce Mostoller has 12 catches for 202 yards and a pair of scores, Raven Beeman has nine receptions for 186 yards and two touchdowns, and Douglas Berkebile has nine catches for 146 yards and two TDs. Mostoller has eight sacks on defense.

Bedford has rushed for 1,570 yards and 20 touchdowns, with three runners gaining 300-plus yards and a fourth closing in on that mark. Jeremiah Bingham (74 carries, 416 yards), Kody Blevins (33-367), August Cook (43-302) and Austin Montgomery (48-261) are top rushers. Montgomery has passed for 557 yards and three touchdowns.

Bishop Guilfoyle at Central Cambria

Central Cambria (5-1) has won five straight games since dropping its opener at Somerset. That’s one more win than the Red Devils had in the previous two seasons combined.

The Marauders (4-2) have a four-game winning streak since losing their first two games at Bedford and against Richland.

Each team is undefeated in four Section 1 games, and tonight’s winner will take sectional honors.

Red Devils junior quarterback Will Seymour has been effective on the ground and through the air. He’s passed for 584 yards and rushed for 404 and nine scores. Last week he ran for 131 yards and three scores and passed for 151 yards in a 39-22 win at Forest Hills.

Guilfoyle quarterback Brandon Chadbourn returned to the offense three weeks ago after an injury, and he’s led the Marauders to wins over Forest Hills, Penn Cambria and Bishop Carroll.

Central Cambria’s defense has 14 interceptions and five fumble recoveries as well as six sacks.
