Mistakes prove costly for Bermudian Springs in 26-7 loss to Wyomissing

The difference in playoff football sometimes boils down to execution and which team makes the fewest mistakes.

On Friday night, turnovers and an inability to finish drives cost Bermudian Springs a shot at a district championship as Wyomissing earned a 26-7 victory in Friday’s District 3 Class AA semifinal at Bermudian Springs.

The two teams had met in the playoffs in three of the past seven years with Bermudian losing all three. On Friday, more so than in their previous meetings, the teams were evenly matched.

“The physical difference between the two teams wasn’t as great,” Bermudian Springs head coach Jon DeFoe said. “Tonight I think we matched up a lot better. We didn’t play consistent. At the end of the night, three to four plays you’d like to have back, but they all count, and those plays led to 26-7.”

The night started off slow for Bermudian Springs. On the opening kickoff, Wyomissing got a great return and started their opening drive on the Bermudian 37-yard line. Four plays later, Peter Geyer rushed up the middle for a 2-yard touchdown run. The highlight of the drive was a 24-yard pass from quarterback Scott Kuczala to Brian Walters.

“We could not have scripted a worse start,” DeFoe said. “We blew the coverage on the pass. You can’t give that up, and you get down right off the bat.”
