BERWICK - Josh Nylund returned an interception eight yards for a touchdown with 3:23 left in the first quarter giving Selinsgrove an early lead against Berwick at Crispin Field.
However, the Bulldogs (5-0) limited the Seals to just 73 yards of total offense and five first downs on Friday night.
The Seals’ only points came on Josh Nylund’s interception return with 3:23 to play in the first quarter. The 8-yard pick-6 and Kyle Ruhl’s PAT vaulted Selinsgrove into the lead, 7-6, until Berwick scored twice in a two-minute span midway through the second quarter.

Berwick (5-0) opened the game with a 75-yard drive highlighted by Ryan Laubach’s 46-yard pass to Shawn Sheptock on a post pattern. The gain to Selinsgrove’s 5 was immediately followed by Teagan Wilk’s TD run.

The Bulldogs then forced a punt from midfield, but Wyatt Metzger’s 46-yard boot was downed at the Berwick 1 by Dean Hollenbach. Two keepers gained nothing, and, on third down, Seals junior Nate Schon pressured Laubach into a pass from deep in the end zone that Nylund snared on the run near the home sideline for a touchdown.

Selinsgrove’s defense turned a Berwick first down at the 11 into a 32-yard field goal try that Brendan Hinkle converted with 6:38 left in the half, nudging Berwick ahead 9-7.

Wilk, a senior all-stater who transferred from Southern Columbia after his freshman year, set up Berwick’s last touchdown with a 36-yard punt return to the Selinsgrove 5. Aiden Mason (15 carries, 71 yards) ran it in one snap later for a 23-7 score.
