After scoring on a one yard run, Miele recovered a fumble late in the third quarter, then pitched the ball to Zach Zwigart, who ran 40-yards for a score in a 23-12 victory over the Knoch Knights.
Anthony Kosciuszko – Shenango
In a Class A Big Seven Conference finale with pride and fifth place at stake, running back Anthony Kosciuszko took great pride in leading his team to a higher notch in the standings.
