The Duryea Wildcats B Team remained unbeaten and unscored upon as they hosted Exeter on Sunday with a WVWYFCC Super Bowl berth on the line and came away with the 32-0 victory over the Panthers.

The Wildcats outscored their opponents 274-0 during the regular season, and will now face Kingston in the championship at Wyoming Valley West Stadium in Kingston.

Donovan O’Boyle had three touchdowns, and Walter Coles passed the ball well and also had a rushing touchdown. Kevin Krawczyk also scored, and Luke Petroski ran the ball well and had a two-point conversion. Wide receiver Kyle Artley had two catches for 65 yards.

The offensive line played as good as they have all year. Brian Miller, Tyler Ferlick, Jake Rutokowski, Jonathan Winters, Nick Harth and Tim Higgins all blocked seemingly unstoppable opponents. Dylan Windburn and Seth Johnson provided depth and relief when the line needed it most.

The defense led by Christian Werner took pride in never allowing an opponent to score. The line was held down by Dominic Cerretta, Jeremy Shagnessy, Austin Basara, Nathanel Wesknak, and Brandon Micavicz. Outstanding play at corner was displayed on both sides by Matt Starinsky and Joe Carey. Linebackers played tough with Rob Jones, Brian Giambra and Lucas Baritski as the starters. O’Boyle played safety. This team has been together since the age of 5. They have played in two Super bowls and have had a playoff appearance in every year since they came together. The head coach this year is Rob Jones. Coach Jay designed and ran a very sophisticated offense for the age of the boys. Defense and special teams was run by Ken Coles.

The Duryea Wildcats C-Team advanced to the WVWYFCC Super Bowl with a 20-6 victory over the WWE Panthers on Sunday.

Andrew Krawczyk ran for two touchdowns while Michael George ran for one score. Michael Nocito added a two point conversion.

The defense was led by Fran George, Brennan Higgins, Logan Booth, Chris Urbanski, Dylan Lukachko, and Austun Vols. The Wildcats will face the Dallas Junior Mounts today at Wyoming Valley West Stadium.
