Wilson erased Penn Manor's early lead Friday night, scoring 28 first-half points to pull away for a 51-24 Lancaster-Lebanon League Section One win over the Comets.
Penn Manor (0-2 L-L, 1-4 overall) gained some momentum early as its stalwart defense stymied the Bulldogs’ attack. First Penn Manor hung tough for a goal-line stand, forcing a field goal, and the Comets followed that up by stopping Wilson (1-0, 5-0) on fourth-and-1 at midfield.
Penn Manor's offense capitalized on the good field position by driving downfield, sparked by a 23-yard screen pass from quarterback Luke Braas to Isaiah Stoltzfus, who plunged in from a yard out on the next play.
After Penn Manor jumped in front, its defense put Wilson in a precarious situation, swarming the Bulldogs’ backfield. But Brown eluded the rush and scampered 52 yards to the Comets’ 5-yard line.
Penn Manor hung tough scoreing 24 points and never giving up in its pursuit to fight.
