D9Sports.com Week 9 Recaps: Brockway Beats ECC, 35-12

A look at this week’s high school football action.


BROCKWAY, Pa. – Behind a pair of Mark Latuska touchdown runs and a touchdown pass and a scoring run from Hunter Miller, Brockway scored the game’s first 28 points on its way to a 35-12 win over visiting Elk County Catholic Friday night.

Latuska scored on runs of six and seven yards in the first quarter, and Miller hit Jake Gorham with a 16-yard first-quarter touchdown pass while adding a 4-yard scoring run late in the first half for the Rovers (7-2, 3-1 AML South), who secured at worst the fifth seed in the D9 Class A playoffs with the victory.

Brockway will be the fourth seed and host a rematch with ECC if Kane wins the AML Title over Port Allegany next week, while the Rovers would drop to the fifth spot and travel to Kane if the Wolves fall to the Gators in the AML title contest.

Latuska finished the night 132 yards on 19 carries and had two catches for 11 yards, while Miller was 9 of 14 passing for 101 yards, the touchdown and the interception and ran 12 times for 64 yards. Troy O’Brien added 55 yards on the ground with a touchdown with Gorham hauling down four passes for 59 yards.

Nate DaCanal was 7 of 18 passing for 85 yards, a touchdown and an interception for ECC (7-2, 2-2), which lost for the second straight week after starting the season 7-0. DaCanal hit Dan Stauffer with a 5-yard pass on the final play of the first half to get the Crusaders within three scores, 28-6, at the break.

Noah Werner, who ran for a team-best 85 yards on 15 carries, then scored on a 1-yard run midway through the third quarter to cut the deficit to 16, 28-12, but that was all the scoring for ECC. Werner added one catch for 12 yards.
