Great Valley dominates Phoenixville in opener

PHOENIXVILLE – Great Valley struck early and often Saturday night, making first-year coach Dan Ellis’ debut a success in a 54-0 nonleague shellacking of Phoenixville at Washington Field.

Nasir Adderly, the grandson of former Green Bay Packers great Herb Adderly, did most of the damage for the Patriots – catching a 48-yard touchdown pass from Nick Cionci to open the scoring and later adding touchdowns on a 36-yard interception return, 58-yard punt return and three-yard run.

Great Valley, which forced four turnovers, scored twice on defense and limited the Phantoms to 164 yards of total offense, also scored on Carter Rubin’s 8-yard run, River Johnson’s 10-yard TD reception on a shovel pass from Zack Ludwig, Doug Strang’s 62 yard interception return and Thomas Brisbane’s 53-yard burst to the house in the third quarter.

Leading the defensive charge for the Patriots was 6-foot-6, 240-pound defensive end Ryan Buchholz. The Penn State recruit posted 1.5 sacks, 3 tackles-for-a-loss and one forced fumble.

Carter Rubin, Mark DeRobertis and Conor Middleton (0.5 sack) also got into the sack parade for Great Valley, which extended a 26-0 first-quarter lead to 47-0 at the break to turn on the running clock.

For the Phantoms, playing their first game under coach Evan Breisblatt, quarterback Ian Brown completed 8 of 16 passes for 66 yards and added 39 yards rushing while Matt Palubinsky combined for 47 yards rushing and receiving.
