Every week, we will highlight some of the best special teams performances from the WVC and LFC presented by Figliomeni Pharmacy Care. Here is Week 6:
IAN BARBINI, Tunkhannock
Barbini has been consistent for the Tigers all season with his extra points and now he can add a field goal to his 2021 resume. He nailed a 36-yd field goal against Berwick on Friday night.
MAX HUNT, Dunmore
Dunmore tried to pull away in the first half against Carbondale but it was a field goal by Max Hunt at the end of the half that put some separation between the two teams. The 36-yard field goal was the longest of his career and gave the Bucks a three-score lead at the time in what ended up being a 9-point game.
STEVE SIMKO, Wilkes-Barre
When a game is decided by 2 points, different plays make a difference throughout the game. Simko’s 65-yd punt return was a huge touchdown for the Wolfpack that helped the team beat rival Valley West and get back to the .500 mark
Honorable Mention: PK Matt Cole, Valley View – 5 extra points, 36-yd Field Goal; PK Connor Poole, Williamsport – two field goals – 27 & 25 yards; PR Liam Barrett, Scranton Prep 65-yd punt return TD.
