TIMES LEADER PLAYER OF THE WEEK
RB – Northwest
The heat and humidity Saturday night at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium took its toll on players from Holy Redeemer and Northwest. Among them was Northwest starting running back Austin Mazonkey.
Burger stepped in and filled the void, rushing 19 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns as the Rangers hung on for a 28-24 victory over Holy Redeemer. Burger didn’t have his first carry until late in the first quarter. He had 12 rushes for 86 yards in the second half, with his 38-yard TD run giving Northwest a 10-point lead with 10:53 remaining.
