TIMES LEADER

WEST PITTSTON — Greg Dolhon’s daring two-point conversion call paid off in overtime Friday night, lifting North Pocono to a victory on the field the coach says he’ll always call home.

Dolhon, a 1989 Wyoming Area graduate, coached the Trojans to a 29-27 victory over his alma mater at Jake Sobeski Stadium.

North Pocono never led until scoring on the first play of overtime on a 10-yard pass from Luke Fetter to Matt Froelick.

Dolhon called for a two-point conversion attempt, electing for a reverse pass. Brody Dial got the ball on the reverse then tucked the ball in and made it into the end zone for an eight-point lead.

The two-pointer forced Wyoming Area to produce both a touchdown and two-point conversion in order to extend the game to a second overtime.

The Warriors got the first part of the equation when Jeff Skursky ran five yards on third down in the overtime series, which gives each team four plays from the 10. A two-point conversion pass fell incomplete.

Wyoming Area (0-3) took its first lead of the season and held it for 29 minutes until North Pocono rallied.

Skursky and Marty Michaels each ran for more than 100 yards while freshman P.J. Angeli threw for one score and ran for another in his first varsity start at quarterback. Skursky finished with 206 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries to lead a 378-yard Wyoming Area rushing attack.

The Warriors led by as many as 14 points, but North Pocono tied the game with another touchdown and two-point conversion combination with 9:21 left.

Pat Monahan, who also rushed for more than 100 yards went 61 yards for the touchdown and Fetter ran for the two points.

Wyoming Area had a shot at the win but a 36-yard field goal attempt by A.J. Lenkaitis with 37 seconds left was just wide.

North Pocono improved to 2-1, matching the combined win total of Dolhon’s first two years as head coach.

CITIXENS VOICE

WEST PITTSTON — Once Friday night’s game went to overtime, coach Greg Dohlon, receiver Brody Dial and the North Pocono Trojans got bold.

And what fans saw on the field was only half of it.

Quarterback Luke Fetter hit Matt Froelick with a 10-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime, then Dial ran in a two-point conversion, giving North Pocono a 29-27 victory over Wyoming Area.

Going for two was aggressive in its own right. Fail and Wyoming Area would only need to score and get an extra point from standout kicker A.J. Lenkaitis to win.

“We were going to go for two automatically,” Dohlon said. “We have a new kicker. I think he’s going to be a great kicker, but I don’t think he’s ready to be that kicker yet.”

Then there was the play call. Not only did Dial get the ball on a reverse, Dohlon said he had the option to pass as well.

“It wasn’t the call. Guess who it was. It was the player,” Dohlon said. “Brody Dial is a fabulous player and he’s a great kid and he made the play to jump in the end zone.”

Wyoming Area did, in fact, score on its possession in overtime when Jeff Skursky rumbled in from 5 yards out. A pass on the two-point attempt did not connect.

“We have a pretty standard two-point play that we work on,” Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer said. “We went with the play we like in that situation. I think we had the play. We just didn’t execute it. They did a great job with theirs and we didn’t get ours.”

Wyoming Area moved the ball effectively on the ground and jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first half on a 2-yard touchdown pass from P.J. Angeli to Dante DeLuca and a 12-yard Skursky run.

Skursky finished with 22 carries for 207 yards and two scores. Marty Michaels ran 19 times for 113 yards. Angeli scored on a 13-yard run to give the Warriors a 21-13 lead early in the fourth quarter.

“Skursky is bigger than four of our five linemen,” Dohlon said. “We knew we’d have a hard time stopping him.”

North Pocono did stop Skursky twice on fourth-and-short, getting key tackles from Ben Bauman and Matt Slagus.

On offense, the Trojans fought their way back into the game using a balanced attack.

Fetter went 11 for 14 for 144 yards after throwing for just 6 yards against Honesdale last week. Pat Monahan also made a pair of huge plays, scoring on TD runs of 35 and 61 yards in the second half.

“I think we have a kid who can throw and some wideouts who can really catch,” Dohlon said. “I think we have to do that. We’re not a big football team. We have to keep people off balance.”

Wyoming Area had a chance to win the game with 37.5 seconds left in regulation, but Lenkaitis’ 36-yard field goal attempt went wide right.

“I said to our guys, not the outcome you wanted, but you can look yourself in the mirror and be OK with your effort,” Spencer said.
