Muncy Keeps Shoe

By Staff | Sep 17, 2013

Muncy senior football players, cheerleaders and managers following their win in the annual "Old Shoe Trophy" game. The trophy has been in possession of Muncy's hands since 2005.

The Indians moved to 3-0 with a 19-6 victory over Montgomery and will keep the “Old Shoe” another year. With Muncy down at the half trailing by six and Montgomery fans chanting “We want the shoe,” into the second half the Red Raiders did not make it easy for Muncy.

Muncy fumbled the ball on its second play from scrimmage after the opening kickoff and two plays later, Montgomery’s Kobe Galentine made his way into the end zone with only 53 seconds into the game.

In the second half the Indians took charge of the field and took away Montgomery’s lead after the Indians drove 80 yards for the go-ahead score. Montgomery’s offense didn’t convert a first down in the second half. The Red Raiders attempted six passes and completed two for minus-3 yards.

Muncy quarterback Anthony Barberio made two touchdown passes to Ken Koch in the fourth quarter. The first Barberio to Koch connection went for 45 yards and the second touchdown came on a fourth-and-4 play from the 10 that gave the Indians a 19-6 lead with 1:41 to play.

Koch finished with 73 yards on three catches and Barberio finished with 110 yards and two touchdowns.
