After a day of torrential rain Pioneers continue the downpour by blanking Penn Manor, 42-0

The Lampeter-Strasburg football team continued their road show the for second week by visiting non-league rival Penn Manor at Comet Field.

Ultimately, the Pioneers won in a 42-0 shutout that made a week of scorching hot practices and the trip all worth it.

Penn Manor entered their second game of the season with something to prove having lost their opening match-up to Conestoga Valley, 13-31 last week. L-S, on the other hand, brought a 1-0 record to the bout after beating Spring Grove, 35-13.

Junior Bryan McKim started the scoring frenzy for the Pioneers halfway through the second quarter with a three yard touchdown run. McKim did the same thing again in the third quarter. He finished the game with 107 yards on 14 carries.

It wasn't just the offense that scored for the Pioneers. Defensive player Jacob Kopelman intercepted a pass for a 65 yard touchdown late in the second quarter.

Despite being rivals, the L-S student section came wearing yellow as a sign of support for the Penn Manor community. Penn Manor was having a yellow out at the game to support suicide prevention in remembrance of senior Sean Moore who had passed away unexpectedly Saturday morning.

L-S is now 2-0 in non-league play. Next week will mark not just the first home game of the season for the Pioneers but also their first game on the new turf field. See you then!
