Wilk sparks fast start by Bulldogs

Returning all-state defensive back Drey Wilk touched the ball just three times on offense for the Berwick Bulldogs Friday night.

That was enough for Wilk to score the game’s first two touchdowns, sparking a 20-point first quarter that carried the Bulldogs to a 34-10, Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1 football victory over visiting Williamsport.

The Bulldogs won their second straight to improve to 2-2 after letting second-half leads get away in the season’s first two games. Williamsport fell to 1-3.

Wilk scored from the 10 on the first of 2 Matt Lonczynski touchdown passes. He then took a pitch to the left and raced down the sideline 86 yards for a score.

Berwick led 20-3 after one quarter and at halftime, then put the game away by twice scoring on fourth downs during the third quarter.

Lonczynski hit Rowan Slabinski for 17 yards on fourth-and-five, then Ryan Bankes scored in a short-yardage situation on fourth-and-goal to increase the lead to 34-3.
