WARRIORS FALL TO PREP 14-7  

CITIZENS VOICE

BY STEVE BENNETT / PUBLISHED: SEPTEMBER 24, 2016

WEST PITTSTON — The momentum was beginning to swing in Wyoming Area’s favor.
And once again the Warriors were proving they are a second half team.
Beginning a drive on their own 4-yard line and trailing by a touchdown, the Warriors were moving the football.
They found the short, underneath passes to be most effective and there was no reason to change.
One big pass play had Wyoming Area at the Scranton Prep 29-yard line, and it appeared as if the Warriors were going to keep that second half magic going.
That was before Scranton Prep defensive end Kyle Polishan came up with the play of the night for the Cavaliers.
Polishan, a 6-foot-3, 245 pound defensive end, didn’t rush the quarterback he dropped a few steps back. And when he did, he picked off a pass with 2:02 left in the game to preserve Scranton Prep’s 14-7 victory at Sobeski Stadium.
The win improved the Cavaliers to 4-1 on the year, while Wyoming Area suffered its first loss of the season and dropped to 4-1.
“Kyle is a freak of nature, he is a big, long kid,” Scranton Prep coach Terry Gallagher said. “I am glad defensively he made the play. He did it in practice a couple of times.”
The Warriors fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter. Mario Giannone scored on a 7-yard touchdown pass, and quarterback Jake Ryan scored on a 19-yard run.
“All the credit to Scranton Prep, we knew they were probably the best team we played up to this point,” Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer said. “They played like it. Our response was there. We talked about growth and maturity and developing. We have to start stronger.”
The Warriors were able to pull within seven with 3:39 left in the third quarter when quarterback P.J. Angeli scored on a 5-yard run. The drive covered 60 yards and lasted 14 plays.
Wyoming Area’s last chance to tie the game before the Polishan interception began on its own 4-yard line following a Scranton Prep punt.
Angeli went to work out of the shotgun with just two pass completions going for more than 14 yards.
“They were dinking and dunking at the end and sometimes that is tough to get pressure,” Gallagher said. “We tried to mix (defensive alignment) up here and there. If they were going to dink and dunk us, we can live with that.”
The Warriors saw the coverage and went with the short, quick passing game to move down the field.
It was a quick pass to the right side of the formation that Polishan picked off.
“It was an alert play by (Polishan),” Spencer said. “He was in position and he made a football play. That is something we have in the quick game toward the end of the game. It is another timing thrown. Rather than being aggressive off the edge, I think (Polishan) backed off. That is what length can do for you.”
