Valley Sports Report
ATHENS — The two-year drought is over for the Athens junior high football team.

Shayne Reid ran for three TDs to lead Athens to a 30-20 win over North Penn here Thursday afternoon, the junior Wildcats’ first win since the 2015 season.

“It was true grit on the gridiron,” said Athens coach Jeremiah Serfas.

After a 6-6 first quarter, Athens took a 14-12 lead into the halftime locker room and never trailed in the second half.

Reid scored on runs of 60, 30 and 5 yards, and teammate Jared Peterson added a 5-yard TD run.

Reid, Peterson and the entire Athens run game worked behind the lead-blocking of fullback Troy Jennings.

Mason Lister quarterbacked the junior Wildcats in the win, replacing injured starter Karter Rude after the first play of the game.

Troy Pritchard had a QB sack to lead the Athens defense.
