Two Schuylkill Valley players had record-tying performances in a 55-7 win at Kutztown. Leading the way was Panthers quarterback Kyle Beissel. He threw five touchdown passes against the Cougars to tie a school mark that was accomplished twice by Matt Korn in 2001. Beissel finished with nine completions for 260 yards and two rushes for 11 yards. Beissel did not attempt a pass in the second half. Tight end Adam Drumgoole hauled in four catches, all for touchdowns. The four scores tied a school record set by Chris Beissel, Kyle's older brother, in 2002. Drumgoole had catches of 36, 11, 57 and 40 for total of 144 yards. Catching the other touchdown was wide receiver Garrett Strobel. He tallied four catches for 100 yards receiving. Overshadowed by the passing attack was Berks County's leading rusher Ryan Matthews. He had 11 carries for 69 yards and a score. Helping with the ground game and filling in for injured running back Eryk Cerankowski was Nick Scheidt. Scheidt had six rushes for 82 yards and a touchdown.
Kutztown (1-3, 0-1) gave Beissel his only blemish in the first quarter with an interception, and held close early in the second quarter, but high-powered Schuylkill Valley (4-0, 1-0) proved too much in the end.
