Derrick Price Talks About the Game

BLOOMSBURG-Sophomore Derrick Price (Burlington, NJ/Burlington City) ran for 185 yards and three touchdowns as fourth-ranked Bloomsburg University defeated C.W. Post 28-14 in PSAC football action on Saturday afternoon at Redman Stadium.

The Huskies (5-0, 2-0) got on the scoreboard first at the 10:57 mark in the first quarter with a 20-yard touchdown pass from senior Dan Latorre (Elysburg/Southern Columbia) to junior Cory Stiger (Williamsport/Loyalsock Twp.). This capped off a four-play, 62-yard drive. Freshman Jared Shannon (Bloomsburg/Bloomsburg) tacked on the extra point to give Bloomsburg an early 7-0 lead.

The Pioneers (1-4, 1-1) struck back with an eight-play drive that covered 80 yards, resulting in a 17-yard scoring toss from Eric Anderwkavich to Chris Harris to tie the score at 7-7.

Starting at their own 33-yard line, the Huskies regained the lead used two first down receptions by Stiger and several runs by sophomore Kenny Domzalski (Milford/Delaware Valley) to get the ball to the C.W. Post one-yard line. A second down touchdown run by Price helped stretch the Bloomsburg lead to 14-7. The 12-play scoring drive by the Huskies used up the remaining 7:16 of the opening quarter.

The Huskies defense made two second quarter stops when they forced a turnover on downs inside their own 10-yard line and got an interception by sophomore Vince Browning (Harrisburg/Central Dauphin), ending the late first half drive.

The Huskies would increase their lead less than five minutes into the second half when, after a 28-yard pass from Latorre to senior Jordan Weisman (Mt. Laurel, NJ /Lenape), Price galloped up the middle for a 33-yard touchdown run. The scoring drive covered 79 yards and used up just 1:35 on the clock.

The defenses tightened up as both teams traded punts and neither was able to get much going throughout the rest of the third and much of the fourth quarter. The Pioneers did find some offensive life and closed the gap to 21-14 on a 15-yard pass from Anderwkavich to Harris with 3:08 left in the game.

After a failed pouch kickoff gave the Huskies the ball at their own 49-yard line, Price went to work rushing four times for 44 yards to the Pioneers seven-yard line. After a three yard pass to sophomore Dylan Manni (Bensalem/Bensalem), Price busted up the middle for his third touchdown of the day to give the Huskies a 14-point advantage with 1:34 remaining.

Latorre finished 10-of-17 for 125 yards and a touchdown and Stiger caught four passes for 84 yards. Senior Anthony Smith (Pottstown/Pottstown) led all tacklers with 19 stops, including a sack and a forced fumble. Junior Mike Varanavage (Philadelphia/Archbishop Ryan) recorded 11 tackles while sophomore Oscar Rivera (Bethlehem/Liberty) had nine tackles and two pass breakups.

The Huskies will welcome Millersville to Redman Stadium next Saturday at 5:00 p.m.
