ALLENTOWN – Rob Dvoracek rushed for 374 yards and six touchdowns to lead the Trojans over Allentown Central Catholic in a Lehigh Valley Conference Football game Satruday night at J. Birney Crum Stadium.
Dvoracek talked about scoring six touchdowns, “The most I ever scored before was three my sophomore year against East Stroudsburg South. I think this is the most I ever had.”
Parkland head coach Jim Morgan’s plan was simple last night. Use his huge offensive line and pound the Vikings by using the “Bobcat” formation with direct snaps mainly to Dvoracek Saturday night.
“I hate the term wildcat”, Morgan said. “But we call it the Bobcat.”
The running attack was led by tight ends David Wong, Matt Laub and Mike Turrell and offensive linemen Eric Burleson, Jake Pope, Mike Unger, Tyler Haas, Ryan Deiter and Zach Polzer. They led the way amassing over 550 yards on the ground.
Dvoracek said, “We came into the game and attacked them up front and we knew we were tougher than them up front. It came down to our O-Line taking over.”
Central Catholic’s All-Star quarterback Brendan Nosovitch led the way in the first half. He rushed for three touchdowns of three, two, and one yards. In one play he hit Kevin Guylas for an 80-yard bomb.
Dvoracek rushed for two touchdowns and Jarel Elder added a 23-yard run.
Central Catholic led 27-21 at halftime.
“I think in the third quarter we had the stamina and they didn’t.” Dvoracek said, “We have been working hard all off-season. “
The Trojans came out at halftime and made a statement. They drove 62 yards for the score. Dvoracek’s one-yard swan dive put the Trojans up by one, 28-27.
Their defense took over in the quarter forcing the Vikings to punt. The Trojans defense forced two turnovers and two punts in the second half.
“We finally got that one stop,” Morgan said, “We finally got up two scores and started to feel more comfortable.”
Morgan got his wish. Elder’s 22-yard run with 5:49 remaining in the third quarter put them up by two scores.
The Trojans out scored the Vikings four touchdowns to two. “That football game was crazy!”, Morgan said.
The Vikings where led by the dynamic duo Brandon Nosovitch and Kevin Gulyas. Nosovitch threw for over 400 yards and rushed for over 100. Gulyas caught 15 passes for 275 yards.
Parkland (5-2) host undefeated Nazareth next Friday night. Allentown Central Catholic (2-5) travels to Dieruff.
