Pine-Richland not only rebounded from last week’s loss to IMG Academy – they made it look ridiculously easy.

“It was a good performance, we wanted to come out and establish our style of football,” said Pine-Richland head coach Eric Kasperowicz. “Coming off a loss, whether it’s a 1-point loss or whatever it was great to have this type of performance.”

The Rams scored touchdowns in rapid succession and built a 42-0 lead with just under nine minutes remaining in the first half.

“We started with the onside kick, went right down the field despite a few penalties, and started rolling from there,” Kasperowicz said. “We came up with stops, put the ball in the end zone, I was very pleased with all three phases today.”

Sophomore quarterback Cole Spencer accounted for 181 totals yards of offense and three touchdowns in the victory.

“Cole’s performance was very promising, and that’s what we needed. He came out and made great decisions,” Kasperowicz said.

Starting with a bang, the Rams stunned the Spartans with an onside kick that later turned into Spencer’s 3-yard run.

Luke Meckler then scored a pair of touchdowns on a 26-yard run, and a 37-yard pass from Spencer that staked Pine-Richland to a 21-0 lead after a quarter.

Shane Carfardi hauled in a 40-yard screen pass for a touchdown, and Anthony Cerminara pounded in a 4-yard score following a muffed kick by Hempfield.



Caden Schweiger would add a 1-yard dive to push the Rams lead to 42-0 with 8:57 remaining in the first half.



From there the Pine-Richland took their starters out.

“I was very satisfied with our defense, at times we need to tackle a little better, but overall I was pleased,” Kasperowicz.

Pine-Richland did add a fourth-quarter touchdown on Jordan Burns 3-yard run following a Spartans fumble.

Pine-Richland outgained Hempfield 385 to 89 in total offense.

“It was different on a Saturday sometimes you don’t come out with that Friday night emotion, but to be able to come and play the way we did was very impressive. I’m very proud of my guys,” Kasperowicz concluded. “Week Zero was the best thing that could have happened to us.”
