Vikings rally for title

Williams Valley scores 20 in last five minutes for District XI title

By Rob Wheary, Staff Writer •


MIKE LEITER/For The Citizen-Standard Williams Valley’s Dylan Rabuck runs over Marian’s Mike Neary for what ended up being Williams Valley’s first touchdown en route to a 34-31 come-from-behind victory in the District XI Class A championship game Nov. 11. Rabuck rushed for 219 yards in the game and went over the 2,000-yard mark for the season.

PINE GROVE – The 2016 District XI Class A title game will be one that many will remember for a long time to come.
Those that left the game early missed an incredible effort by the Williams Valley Vikings, erasing a 17-point deficit in the final five minutes to win the championship with a 34-31 win over Marian at Cardinal Stadium, Pine Grove.
“It’s very important to me that every class has a district gold medal, and this is the fourth year for the senior class, so we wanted to get this one for them,” Williams Valley coach Tim Savage said. “The kids answered the call tonight. These kids have a drive that I don’t see in a lot of teams.
With Marian’s Ethan Kuczynski scoring on a 66-yard touchdown run to make the score 31-14 with seven minutes to play and Williams Valley being intercepted by the Marian defense, hope was slipping away from the Vikings.


New police chief in town

By Rebecca Zemencik, Managing Editor •

VALLEY VIEW – If one asks what’s new in Hegins Township? The answer this month would be a new police chief and two new ordinances.
During its meeting Wednesday, Nov. 3, the supervisors unanimously approved appointing Sgt. Beau Yarmush as the new police chief and also adopted a driveway ordinance and animal control ordinance.
At the start of the regular meeting, before any other business was conducted the supervisors held public comment concerning the proposed ordinances. One question came up regarding stray cats and Solicitor Donald Karpowich said the ordinance addresses that matter.

Line Mountain wins District IV field hockey crown

Larry Deklinski/For The Citizen-Standard Line Mountain field hockey head coach Ashtin Klinger and team members charge the field after winning the PIAA District 4 Class A title against Bloomsburg Thursday on a penalty corner by Sierra Bobb at the end of overtime.

ALMEDIA — Sixth-seeded Line Mountain’s improbable run to its first field hockey district championship since 2000 culminated in a most improbable way Thursday.
Sierra Bobb scored a goal off a penalty corner with no time left on the clock at the end of the first overtime period to give the Eagles a 2-1 win over top-seeded Bloomsburg, but the win was even more improbable than that goal suggests.
Bloomsburg outshot the Eagles, 16-7, and had an 11-3 edge in penalty corners, including 8-0 in the second half. In addition, things looked very dark when Bloomsburg’s Lauren Brouse finally broke a scoreless tie with just 7:36 remaining in the game.
