Standing in the bleachers prior to kickoff Friday night, one could see a series of car lights in the distance. One by one the cars pulled into the parking lot outside Kenneth Robbins Stadium before exiting and standing in a huge line that stretched into the darkness. Fans jammed all the stands, the hills and the fence around the stadium simultaneously.
WYALUSING - In the 31st meeting for the Bronze Helmet trophy, the Black Knights did just enough to come away with a 14-7 victory. Out gained in yards rushing, yards passing, and time of possession, a blocked punt returned 25 yards for the go ahead score would prove to be the difference for Towanda.
