Five players from District 2 have been selected to play in the annual Pennsylvania Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game.

Berwick had two players selected — quarterback C.J. Curry and running back/defensive back Dain Kowalski. Coughlin lineman Anthony Khalife, a Colgate recruit, was the other Wyoming Valley Conference standout selected.

The WVC trio will be joined by two players from the Lackawanna Conference — Dunmore lineman Jim McHale and Abington Heights quarterback J.C. Show. McHale will play at Temple in the fall. Show will head to Bucknell, where he will play basketball.

“It’s a good honor for the kids,” Berwick coach George Curry said. “You look at it, there are two games (East-West and Big 33). The top 100 kids in the state that don’t get picked for one get picked for the other. It’s a feather in your cap.”

The East-West Game will be played May 4 at Franklin Regional High School outside of Pittsburgh.


Wilkes 8, Eastern 7, 11 innings

With the game tied at 7-7 heading into the bottom of the 11th inning, Wilkes managed to earn the win in its Freedom Conference opener with a victory over Eastern.

Stephen Ruch led the Wilkes offense, finishing 4-for-5 with two RBI, while Matthew Reese and Tom Ring each contributed three hits. Ring also collected two RBI.
