Linglestown Colts go 2 for 3 on opening day

Linglestown Colts varsity midget football team was overpowered Sunday by the Mechanicsburg Wildcats in the season opener at Koons Park. Mechanicsburg jumped out to an 18-0 lead in the first quarter and cruised to a 38-6 win. Linglestown’s highlight was a 75-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter by Colts speedster Drew Scales. The Colts played hard, but were overmatched by a much bigger Wildcats team. The midget division features players who are age 14 and under with a maximum weight of 148 pounds.

Linglestown teams upended Mechanicsburg in the two other games contested Sunday at sun-drenched Koons Park:

* Colts Pee-Wees 18, Wildcats 12 (age 10 and under with maximum weight of 96 pounds)

* Colts Pony 18, Wildcats 9 (age 12 and under with maximum weight of 120 pounds)

Colts varsity teams travel to meet West Shore Vikings next Saturday, Aug. 30, 3 pm at a field in Wormleysburg. Junior varsity games start next week – check the Linglestown Football Association's Web site for schedules.
