The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch football team closed out their 2010 season with a 28-20 victory over the Karns City Gremlins Friday night at Dutch Country Stadium.
The Dutch finished the year with a solid 6-3 record.
The game was a back-and-forth affair, as the teams exchanged the lead during the first half and early in the second half.
St. Marys began to take charge when they went up 20-12 with 40 seconds remaining in the third quarter on a screen pass from quarterback Brad Yetzer to running back Brian Merritt, who took the ball 34 yards for the touchdown.
The Elk County Catholic Crusaders spoiled the Ridgway Elkersâ€™ Senior Night by handing them a 41-0 setback on Friday at the Ridgway Area High School. The Crusaders rebounded from back-to-back losses to Brockway and Curwensville to play a very solid game on Friday against the Elkers.
â€śI feel that the way we practiced this week was the key to tonightâ€™s win,â€ť said Travis Skrzypek, head coach of the Crusaders. â€śWe worked hard all week long in practice and as a result, we responded well in the game situations tonight.
