Karns City junior Zach Moore will likely lock the Gremlins' 17-14 home win over Punxsutawney in his memory for as long as possible.

Moore, a fullback and the team's kicker, scored on a 57-yard run in the first quarter and then kicked a 32-yard field goal in the final minute to help Karns City (5-2, 3-0) claim sole possession of first place in the Keystone Shortway Athletic Conference's Large School division.

Senior Jamie Bush had an 8-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter for Punxsutawney (4-3, 2-1), and the teams were tied at 7-all at halftime.

The Chucks took a 14-7 lead in the third, but Karns City answered in the fourth with a touchdown pass from Tyler Kepple to Dakota Mohney.

Karns City will finish its KSAC Large School schedule when it meets second-place Brookville (5-2, 2-1) in two weeks.

Clarion 49, Redbank Valley 7 — Redbank Valley (0-7, 0-4) hung with Clarion (7-0, 4-0) for most of the first half and actually outgained the Bobcats in the first quarter.

But the Keystone Shortway Athletic Conference Small School division leader built a 14-0 lead by halftime and then pulled away in the third quarter.

Jake Dougherty threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Bam Bailey late in the fourth quarter for Redbank Valley's only score.
