Weekend wrap — QB Smith leads rout

The beginning of Tyler Smith's senior season couldn’t have gotten off to a much better start.

The Maryland quarterback recruit led Wilson (Pa.) Area High to a 45-8 rout of Palmerton on Saturday.

Smith, Wilson Area High School's senior quarterback, threw for 297 yards in what amounted to a little more than a quarter as the Warriors opened their season with a 45-8 dismantling of Palmerton on Saturday before a sun-baked crowd at Smith Field.

• In Abington Heights’ 33-18 win over Hazleton Area (Pa.), Sal Conaboy helped pave the way for the Comets’ 302-yard rushing day.

“It was the offensive line,” said [running back Paul] Gallagher, who stopped to rattle off the names of center Adrian Brunori, guards Sal Conaboy and John Price, tackles Evan Craig and Kevin Kilpatrick and backup Joe Dolan. “I didn’t do much.

Tyrek Cheeseboro’s Milford Mill squad dropped a 33-12 game to Eastern Tech.

Milford controlled the game early, driving 63 yards on their opening possession,including passes of 21, 14 and 13 yards from quarterback Kyle McEachern to speedy Tyrek Cheeseboro. But the Millers failed to capitalize. After Miguel Bernard's 32-yard field goal was waived off for illegal motion, Bernard pushed his 37-yard try wide right.

• Terps tight end commitment Nermin Delic’s Northwest Whitfield (Ga.) team fell to Hiram, 19-8.

“A tough loss,” said Northwest’s Nermin Delic, a senior tight end/defensive end. “We were up at the half and played hard the whole game. The offense couldn’t convert for us when they had the chance. We fought all night and that was the best we could do.”
