James Sobol threw for three touchdowns and ran for the other Friday night while the Old Forge defense was shutting out visiting Dunmore until the final minute of a 28-7, non-league victory in a meeting of traditional Lackawanna Football Conference Small School powers.

Sobol finished 9-for-14 for 172 yards passing with Casey Holzman pulling in 5 of the passes for 105 yards.

The Blue Devils, ranked second in the state among Class A teams by, improved to 2-0. Dunmore is 0-2.

Sobol opened the scoring when he took a fourth-down quarterback sneak in from the 1 during the first quarter.

John Greenfield had an interception and 42-yard return with 9:31 left in the second quarter and Old Forge added to its lead less than four minutes later.

Sobol hit Holzman with a 26-yard touchdown pass, then connected with Mario Samony for what turned into a 56-yard touchdown 41 seconds before halftime.

Josh Spindler scored on a 4-yard pass midway through the fourth quarter.

Dunmore’s Danny Pigga broke the shutout with a 42-yard run with 28 seconds remaining.
