LIVE BLOG: Results, photos from Week 1 of Centre County HS football

While it might not feel like it with 80-degree weather, high school football season is here.

Four local teams were in action Friday night, and they went a combined 3-1 with Penns Valley, Philipsburg-Osceola, and State College winning in blowouts, and Bellefonte dropping its opener.

Bald Eagle Area plays Saturday at Troy.

Here’s what happened:

Jersey Shore 55, Bellefonte 35 (final)

Jersey Shore quarterback Tanner Lorson spoiled Bellefonte’s opening night in the newly renovated Rogers Stadium by accounting for eight touchdowns in a 55-35 victory over the Red Raiders.

The Red Raiders (0-1) had no answer for Lorson all night long as he threw for 220 yards and four TDs and he ran for 102 yards and another four scores.

Jersey Shore (1-0) stormed out to a 28-7 lead just 16 minutes into the season opener but Bellefonte clawed back to tie the game just two minutes into the second half with 21 unanswered points.

Ethan Rossman hit a streaking Mason Grey down the seam for a 54-yard score to tie the game at 28-28 with 9:51 remaining in the third quarter, but the Bulldogs silenced the home crowd with four consecutive touchdowns in a 14-minute span to put the game on ice.

State College 42, Mifflin County (6) (final)

State College piled on the points at Mifflin County. It started with scoring runs by QB Brady Dorner and RB Isaiah Edwards in the first, then a 57-yard run by Lokey Howell off a screen pass by Dorner.

RB Dresyn Green then scored two rushing touchdowns in the second to make it 35-0.

The mercy rule went into effect in the second half, and State College put in its second team. Backup QB Conrad Moore recorded his first varsity touchdown with a 12-yard pass to Edwards with 3:25 left in the third.

Mifflin County scored a touchdown but missed the extra point in the third to keep from getting shut out.

Philipsburg-Osceola 41, West Branch 16 (final)

P-O scored its first touchdown of the season on a pass from quarterback Ryan Whitehead to WR Chase Chapman from 23 yards out. Tyler Anderson then recovered a fumble on the two-point conversion attempt to lead the Warriors 8-0 with 5:13 in the first.

The Mounties scored again on a 4-yard touchdown run by Kaleb Stamm, then hit the extra point to make it 15-0 with 11:11 to go in the second. West Branch then scored with 33 seconds left in the half.

Hunter Weitoish ran back a punt 74 yards for a Mounties touchdown with 8:17 left in the third quarter.

Stamm added a 20-yard touchdown, his second of the night, with 5:23 left in the third quarter.

West Branch added a safety after a P-O snap on a punt attempt went through the back of the end zone. The Warriors followed that safety up with a touchdown to make it 28-16 heading into the fourth.

Jeremy Whitehead ran in a 1-yard touchdown with 7:59 left to put the Mounties up 34-16. With 4:13 left to play, Weitoish caught a 79-yard pass from Ryan Whitehead to extend the lead to 25, solidifying the team’s first victory of the season.
