Clymer 29, Pine Valley 12
CLYMER - Dylan Neckers provided the spark that Clymer (1-4, 1-4) ) needed to post its first victory.
Neckers returned a short kickoff to mid-field and then hit Brandon Moreash with a 30-yard scoring pass with two minutes left in the first half that sliced the Pine Valley lead to 12-6. After that, the momentum was on Clymer's side on the way to a 29-12 victory.

''We just dominated the second half on both sides of the ball,'' said Clymer coach Dave Bodamer. ''The boys up front starting creating holes and we were basically able to run whatever we wanted.''
Jake Wiggers, who was back in the Clymer lineup after missing last week's game at Cattaraugus-Little Valley with a sprained ankle, really benefited by linemen opening the holes as he gained 108 yards rushing in the second half. He checked out with 174 yards on 33 carries while making 13 tackles.
Mitch Einink of Clymer was in on eight tackles, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble in the end zone for the last touchdown of a 22-0 second half.

Collver hit on 11-of-20 passes for 220 yards and twice connected with Bryce Peterson on scores as the Bears stopped Sherman, 28-18, in Class DD football.

But Sherman cut the deficit to 14-12 at halftime on runs of 3 and 2 yards by Devin Moorhead. The 2-yard score was set up by a Sherman fumble recovery.
Collver accounted for his third touchdown on a 1-yard run and Trevor Spicer ran back an interception 60 yards for the Bears in the second half.
