Shulenberger was good for 124 rushing yards on eight touches.
- East Pennsboro finally got into the win column by shutting out Palmyra 24-0. Jared Gorman threw a 44-yard touchdown pass and run in a score from a yard out to stake the Panthers (1-3, 1-0 Capital) to a 14-0 lead, and that was enough to get a home win. Gorman finished 16-of-27 passing for 204 stripes, adding seven carries for 35 yards. He hit five different receivers, but Blake Paukovits, Hunter Campbell and Jacob Shermeyer accounted for at least four receptions and 50 yards apiece. Paukovits caught the opening score.

Loy’s 18-yard insurance score made it 27-0, but the ‘Hounds were set up for success thanks to the defense, which turned a pair of fumbles into big scores.

Ship forced four turnovers and held the Indians to just 119 rushing yards and 16 passing. Waynesboro’s QBs had more interceptions (two) than completions (one).
