By on October 3, 2012

Cocalico took care of its business Friday night and Manheim Central did as well, setting up what figures to be a juicy first-place showdown Friday night in Manheim.

The Eagles had no problems Friday at home against winless Solanco as Spencer Moser rushed for 179 yards and a pair of scores to pace the Eagles in a 43-7 victory.

All told, Cocalico rolled up 336 yards on the ground in jumping out to a 43-0 lead after three quarters before calling off the dogs.

Moser got the Eagles going on their second possession, racing 85 yards down the sideline for the game’s first score.

Then after a Solanco fumble, quarterback Brock Gosling made it 14-0 when he scrambled in from 20 yards out.

Cocalico would eventually double that lead to 28-0 before the half as Gosling hit Mitch Shober on a 10-yard touchdown pass before Moser broke another long one, rambling 74 yards for the score.

The Eagles (4-1 overall, 2-0 section) then added the finishing touches to this one with a pair of Jhett Janis touchdowns of 13 and 33 yards in the third to make it 43-0 and invoke the Mercy Rule.

Solanco did get on the scoreboard late as quarterback Caleb Groff scored from five-yards out.

As for this Friday’s big game in Manheim, the Barons are coming off a 69-7 drubbing of winless Lebanon Friday night.

Like Cocalico, Manheim Central is 4-1 overall and 2-0 in Section Two play.
