HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Blue Mountain Wins "Clash of 61" Over Pottsville

Blue Mountain came out on top after the annual rivalry game between the Eagles and Pottsville Area.

This year's game took place at Blue Mountain.

The game was all tied up 0-0 after the 1st quarter and it wasn't until the 2nd when Blue Mountain's Carson Kerstetter would recover a Pottsville fumble and return it for a touchdown.

A touchdown by BM Payton Faschnact and a field goal by Kreese Stablein would leave the score 17-0 Blue Mountain at the half and remain the score for the final.

Blue Mountain moves on to play Southern Lehigh next week at Center Valley.

Pottsville falls to 1-3 on the season and will play Saucon Valley at home next week.
