Burghers blast Whitehall in offensive flurry

WARRENSBURG - Staging a dramatic rebound from a prior week's defeat, The Warrensburg High School Varsity Football team put on an offensive show to dominate Whitehall 41-0.

The game was the first shutout victory in recent years for the Burghers, raising expectations among fans and coaches for the remainder of the season for top performance from this experienced, talented squad.

Red-hot Quarterback Brendan Frye passed for 182 aerial yards and three touchdowns in the game, the third of the season for Warrensburg.

Frye showed his versatility Saturday as he also ran for 140 yards. Running back Mike Perrone had a stellar game, tallying 114 rushing yards - as well as grabbing a fumble and returning it 39 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.

Another loose ball resulted in a Burgher score: Adam Langworthy recovered another fumble in the Railroader's end zone, adding another six points in the offense-heavy third stanza.

The game started out at a slower pace, with Warrensburg scoring one touchdown each in the first two quarters. The first was a toss by Frye to Hunter Werner, and the second was a longer Frye pass to Mike Curtis for a 26-yard gain.

The fourth quarter, the Burghers added to the tilted score, with a touchdown run buy Mike Perrone, and a pass by Frye to Nelson
