Brockway rolls by Kane in 44-7 rout

October 29, 2011

BROCKWAY - The Kane Wolves travelled to Brockway to take on the Rovers on a good night for high school football.
The Brockway Rovers used a strong running game and got some great blocking up front to open up holes for the running backs. They were able to collect two first downs and put the young defense on their heels early. Then with just a little under nine minutes to go in the first quarter they got back to back nice runs culminating in the first score of the game with a big 43-yard touchdown. The PAT was good.
