Carlisle Mechanicsburg Football

Mechanicsburg’s Micah Brubaker runs the ball during the first quarter of their game against Mechanicsburg in the season-opening Mid-Penn Conference game Friday night at Carlisle High School.

MECHANICSBURG — For a football program that had won only five games the previous three years entering this season, picking up its third consecutive victory in front of a packed house at John H. Frederick field was a big deal for Mechanicsburg.

The Wildcats scored a pair of quick touchdowns in the opening four minutes to grab control and rode a stingy defense the rest of the way to a comfortable 26-3 Mid-Penn Conference Keystone Division victory over visiting Hershey.

“Three wins is so huge for us. Being in school and around town you can feel it for sure and it’s different,” said Wildcats quarterback Micah Brubaker, who threw for 196 yards and three touchdowns. “It’s been a while since we had this in Mechanicsburg and it feels great. We are starting to know how to win football games again.”
