WRIGHT TWP. — The misty weather did not stop Treyson Potts from putting on a show on Friday night.

Potts helped lead Williamsport to a 49-26 victory over Crestwood in a Wyoming Valley Conference interdivisional game.

Despite the final score, the Comets and the Millionaires traded blows in the first half.

Crestwood drove down the field slowly for a touchdown on its first possession of the game. The Comets took off nearly seven minutes off the clock after Chase Passman found receiver Ryan Petrosky in the end zone.

Potts and Williamsport were unable to get anything going until the final minutes of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, the Millionaires continued with their first-quarter momentum.

Just two minutes in, the Minnesota-bound Potts dived in for a 2-yard touchdown to get the Millionaires on the board.

Later in the second, Potts caught a pass from quarterback Joe Fagnano, blowing past defenders for a 68-yard touchdown.

Whatever Williamsport head coach Chuck Crews told his team during the half, it worked. The Millionaires scored at will in the third quarter, scoring four touchdowns while leaving Crestwood off the scoreboard.

After the Millionaires recovered a low squib kick that bounced off a Comets player, Fagnano threw a 46-yard strike to wideout Brock Moyer for a touchdown that only took eight seconds off the game clock.

Potts rushed for two touchdowns in the third quarter. He finished the day with four total touchdowns, three rushing and one receiving. Potts finished the day with 11 rushes for 131 yards and six receptions for 105 yards.

Anthony Carporuscio was the entire offense for the Comets, rushing 32 times for 171 yards and two touchdowns.

Comets running back Ryan Miller ran for a 51-yard score on his fifth rush of the night as time expired in the fourth quarter.

The last time the two teams faced off, Williamsport walked away with a 47-13 victory in 2015.

With the win, the Millionaires improved to 3-2, while the Comets slipped to 1-4 on the season.
