Wydra, Ormando lead Dallas rout

Dallas quarterback Jackson Wydra

Jackson Wydra produced five touchdowns in the first 17:35 Friday night as Dallas pounded visiting Wilkes-Barre Area, 45-0, in a non-league game between Wyoming Valley Conference football teams.

Both teams entered the game with 1-1 records, coming off opposite ends of one-point decisions a week ago.

But, this one was never close.

Wydra threw for four touchdowns and ran for another, all while the Mountaineers were running out to a 35-0 lead with 7:25 left in the second quarter.

The lead reached 38-0 at halftime and Rocco Ormando completed the scoring when he returned a fumble 43 yards for his third touchdown just 3:08 into the second half.

Wydra finished 10-for-14 for 166 yards passing.

Ormando caught the game’s first touchdown pass, a 21-yarder, and caught another, for 30 yards, in the second quarter.

Jace Chopyak went 6-for-6 on extra points and made a 19-yard field goal.

The first three Dallas touchdowns came in a span of 5:36 in the first quarter.

After throwing to Ormando, Wydra ran 3 yards, then hit Joe Peters for a 9-yard touchdown.

The second touchdown pass to Ormando was followed by a 14-yarder to Zach Paczewski.

Dallas has won two straight since an opening loss to unbeaten Valley View.

Wilkes-Barre Area has dropped two straight.
