It was a long time coming for Daniel Boone as the Blazers finally secured their first win of the season, beating winless Twin Valley 26-0 in a Berks Football League Section One game Friday night at Twin Valley.

It was an all-around strong effort from the Blazers (1-2, 1-5) as they compiled 322 yards, but one player stood out above the rest.

Junior Kyle Myers rushed for 188 yards on nine carries and scored on a 66-yard run. He started off running for minus-3 yards in the first half, but exploded for 191 in the second, including carries of 61, 50 and the 66-yard touchdown.

“I was expecting 100 yards, but 191 is pretty good,” Myers said. “I got my old line together and said, ‘I need you guys.’ They are the heart of this offense. They blocked for me and we had some nice plays.”

The win was not only the first for the team, but also for new head coach Bill Parks.

“The kids totally deserve it,” Parks said. “They’ve been working so hard for so long and I’m happy for them.”

Parks and the Blazers want to draw from the win and turn the season.

“They need to learn that they have to play all four quarters and there are no letups,” Parks said. “In the second half, they bought into that and they did that.”
