D9Sports.com: South Fayette Ends Karns City Season for Second Straight Year

CLARION, Pa. (D9Sports.com) – For the second straight year, South Fayette ended Karns City’s season at Clarion University’s Memorial Stadium.

Last year it was the Lions record-setting quarterback Brett Brumbaugh who did the damage, but this year the Gremlins contained Brumbaugh. Instead, junior running back Hunter Hayes did the damage. Hayes ran for 183 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Lions to a 42-15 win in the PIAA quarterfinals Friday night.

“They dropped a lot of guys and did a lot of blitzes,” South Fayette head coach Joe Rossi said of why his team went to the ground. “Our coaches did a good of adjusting and getting to the run game.”

Brumbaugh, who came into the game needing 303 yards to tie Port Allegany’s Matt Bodamer for the state career passing record – Bodamer threw for 10,948 yards in a career that ended in 2012 – did toss the pigskin for 199 yards. But Brumbaugh, who torched Karns City for 340 yards and five touchdowns last year, was only 11 of 23 passing with one touchdown and an interception.
