The offense on the Boyertown football team has scored 70 points during its two-game winning streak, where they’ve totaled 766 yards of total offense. The Bears were looking to spoil Phoenixville’s Homecoming on Oct. 12, and did just that as they scored nine touchdowns and totaled 651 of total offense in a 62-7 lopsided victory. The 62 points tied a record. In November of 2009, the Bears tallied 62 points against Great Valley. The victory over Phoenixville gives the Bears a record of 5-2 (overall), 4-2 (league).

Senior quarterback Griffin Pasik threw three touchdown passes to senior wide out Nick Brough for 71, 73 and 33 yards. Brough had 175 yards receiving. Pasik also ran for two touchdowns from three and 68 yards. Pasik rushed for 115 yards while going 7-for-13 for 227 yards. He threw four touchdowns and one interception.

“We scored 62 points, but I am really happy with the defense,” said Scisly. “I thought our defense really rose to the occasion. We got turnovers and created good field position after giving up 34 points to Pottstown (last week). We played a physical game and I’m really proud of our guys.”

Boyertown set the tone early, scoring on its first offensive possession. Pasik threw a pass to Brough for a 73 yard touchdown. Giorgio added the extra point to put the Bears up, 7-0, 20 seconds into the game.

“We had that planned the whole week and I was just wondering if he was going to be open,” said Pasik.

“I thought we matched up well and Nick’s been playing well lately,” said Scisly. “I thought we had some good match-ups there and we took advantage of them. That set the tone for the afternoon.”

After holding the Phantoms’offense in check, the Boyertown offense went back to work with a 15-play drive. The extra point was no good, but the Bears increased their lead to 13-0 with 5:46 to go in the first quarter.

While it was a team effort on defense for a great game, Scisly gave credit to the defensive ends Tyler Zilen and Brad Dardas. The linebacker crew of Mike Murphy, Anthony Borzillo and Will Scholl had a good game as well. Austin Jacobs and Kyle Schutt also had a good game up front.

“Justin Siejk came up big from the safety position,” said Scisly.

On the next Boyertown possession, Pasik threw his second touchdown pass to Brough for 73 yards. Pasik threw a pass to Tyler Zilen in the back of the end zone for a two-point conversion to give Boyertown a commanding 21-0 lead with 3:37 left in the first quarter.

The Bears defense once again held the Phantoms to a three-and-out, giving them excellent field position at mid field. The offense was able to move the ball down field and they capped off the drive with a Pasik screen pass to Richmond for 22 yards for their fourth touchdown of the day. The extra point was no good, but the Bears led 27-0 early in the second quarter.

The Phantoms started to get some success moving ball, getting a 15 yard personal foul penalty. They gotas close as the Boyertown 40 yard line, but were forced to punt. Cole Luzins tried a fake punt, but his pass was intercepted by Justin Siejk at the Boyertown 15 yard line.

After two runs by Richmond for 17 yards, Pasik busted up the middle for a 69 yard run for a touchdown. The extra point was good and the Bears led 34-0 with just under six minutes to play in the first half.

The Bears kicked off to Cordell Carabello who ran the kick off back 85 yards for the Phantoms lone touchdown. In the second half, Boyertown added four more touchdowns. The second was a 10-yard touchdown run which gave Richmond 1,000 yards for the season.

“I trust my receivers,” said Pasik. “Today we really clicked and we scored 62 points. I feel they can win against any defensive backs. When it clicks, it’s a lot of fun.”
