Bishop Carroll blanks Penn Cambria in LHAC

LORETTO — Bishop Carroll survived a Penn Cambria possession that lasted nearly 12 minutes and went on to shut out the Panthers, 21-0, in a Laurel Highlands Conference football game Saturday night at Saint Francis University’s DeGol Field.

Tyler Janosik rushed for 93 yards and one touchdown to lead Bishop Carroll.

The Huskies (3-1) gained 344 total yards, including 250 on the ground, and held the Panthers to 98 total yards.

Penn Cambria threatened to break a scoreless tie when it drove 64 yards on 19 plays.

But Kenny Weiland blocked Colin Shable’s 31-yard field goal attempt, and the Huskies took over at the Bishop Carroll 32.

The Huskies took advantage when Dan Lesney scored from

5 yards with 15 second left before halftime.

 “It was tough,” Penn Cambria coach Jason Grassi said. “We were chipping away, chopping away, chipping away; doing exactly what we wanted to do. … I think (not scoring) kind of deflated us a little bit.”

“We weren’t really joking about it, but we were saying when we got into the locker room we had only two offensive possessions in the first half. That was it,” Bishop Carroll coach Greg Snyder said.

“And on the first drive we went right down the field, and we had a penalty and shot ourselves in the foot a little bit. And then on the second drive we went right down the field and scored.”

Penn Cambria basically dared Bishop Carroll to throw. And David Maruca made the most of the opportunities during Bishop Carroll’s first possession of the first half by completing passes to Brody Shuty (28 yards) and Alex Repko (27) to advance the Huskies to the Penn Cambria 3.

Janosik’s 3-yard touchdown run padded the Bishop Guilfoyle advantage to 14-0.

Maruca completed all four of his passes for 94 yards.

“We feel very comfortable throwing the ball. We don’t have any reservations throwing the ball,” Snder said.

Bishop Carroll’s edge in depth also began to take its toll at the game progressed.

“The real nice part of it is (with) our five offensive linemen, none of them play defense,” Snyder said. “And I think we started wearing them down a little bit.”

Repko contributed a 3-yard scoring run 5 minutes later.

Mark Mardula took over at quarterback when  Chad Tsikalas left because of injury. Mardula’s 7-yard run on a fake punt kept the Panthers’ long but fruitless scoring chance in order.

Mardula completed one of 9 passes for 21 yards and was intercepted once.
