It took three quarters for most of the offensive fireworks to get started in the Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association East-West Game on Sunday afternoon. But when they happened, they happened quickly.

C.J. Curry of Berwick threw four touchdowns, and the East held off a furious West rally in the final quarter to win the annual All-Star contest, 35-25, Sunday at Franklin Regional.

“I couldn't have asked for a better team,” said Curry, named the East's MVP. “Yes, I got the MVP, but the whole team deserved it.”

Curry threw two first-half touchdown passes to Delane Hart, with the first, a 46-yarder, coming on the East's second play from scrimmage, and added fourth-quarter scoring tosses to Shane Schuback and Malik Lewis.

The East's defense held the West scoreless in the first half and forced six turnovers.

“It was just a break here, a break there,” West coach Pat Monroe said. “It's what an all-star game's all about. Sometimes it happens for you, and sometimes it's just a hair away.”

The game was marked by physical play, including an on-field brawl in the third quarter that led to three ejections from both teams.

“I thought Pat and his staff, my staff, the game directors and the officials did a great job smoothing everything out,” East coach Danny Algeo said. “It really could have escalated, but I thought the guys that ran the game did a great job.”

The East took a 14-0 lead into halftime thanks to Curry's two touchdown passes to Hart and widened it immediately in the second half when James Warren returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for a score.

The West, which turned the ball over three times in the first half, got on the board midway through the third quarter when Chartiers-Houston's Miles Williamson caught a touchdown pass from Trevor Hildebrand of Littlestown.

The West's offense picked up in the fourth quarter, scoring three touchdowns in the final 5 minutes 15 seconds. West Mifflin's Jimmy Wheeler ran in from 2 yards out to cut the West deficit to 28-12, and Gateway's Delvon Randall made it 28-18 when he caught a 16-yard pass from Franklin Regional's Charan Singh after the West recovered an onside kick.

“It was fun,” said Randall, who caught nine passes for 110 yards. “It was just a blessing to be able to play in this all-star game and compete against some great players.”

The East put the game away with Lewis' 25-yard circus catch in the back of the end zone with 1:52 left.

Franklin Regional's Colin Jonov, who intercepted a pass, was named the West MVP after his final game on his home field.

“A win would've been a little bit better, but it's awesome,” Jonov said. “It's my last couple of minutes on this field, and it's great to win MVP here. It's an honor.”
