Back in 1972, Scottie Frisina and today’s Corry Beavers weren’t even thought of.
That was the last time Corry and beaten Meadville on the football field (22-8).
Last night at Sheen Field, Frisina and Co. scored so many times that the scoreboard went out.
The Beavers registered a key region win, leading by the improbable score of 36-5 after three quarters. The Bulldogs scored on the final play under the mercy rules to leave Corry with another impressive win, 42-11.
The Orange and Black are now 4-0, the first start to a season like this since 1996.
Frisina had another stellar night.
The quick-footed senior ran for three touchdowns and passed for two others. He was 15 of 20 in the air for 250 yards while carrying the ball nine times for 104 yards.
That’s 354 yards total offense.
Meadville, now 1-3, scored first on a 20-play drive capped with a field goal. The ‘Dogs took 10:23 off the clock — which was working at that point.
Corry took a 7-3 lead on Frisina’s 16-yard run and Dave Hajec’s PAT.
A safety for intentional grounding in the end zone closed the gap to 7-5 at 7:49 of the second.
But Frisina ran for a score, then threw TD passes to Cory Owens (see photo) and Mitchell Anderson making it 29-5.
Frisina scored standing up with 1:07 to go in period three and a 36-5 advantage.
Adam Zimmerman put the mercy rule in effect with a 9-yard run with 3:55 to play.
Meadville scored on the last play of the game.
“They caught us on our heels early, we needed a chance to see their offense live,” coach Homer DeLattre said. “We needed to adjust.
“Scottie did a nice job running the football but we had too many penalties in the running game and on a punt return, we can’t do that,” he said.
The Beavers did not have to punt, allowed no sacks and registered three. Frisina threw two interceptions but Corry did not lose a fumble.
Corry now hosts lowly Central Tech on homecoming.
“We have a football game to play and that’s where our focus will be,” DeLattre said.
