Known as the Battle for the Coal Bucket, the rivalry between the Shamokin Area High School Indians and the Mt. Carmel High School Red Tornadoes has been heated for years. Both teams hit the field Friday with equal conference standings, but Shamokin looks for a win after last year’s 43-36 loss to Mt. Carmel, who took home the Coal Bucket for the 22nd year in 2017.
Mt. Carmel (PA) :28
The Mt. Carmel Red Tornadoes had all but wrapped up this one by the end of the 3rd quarter when they held a 28-0 lead. From the opening kick, the Red Tornadoes looked the better team. The Indians from Shamokin struggled to get anything going offensively against a stout Mt. Carmel defense. MVP Shane Weidner led the way for the Red Tornado offense with 110 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 19 carries. He and Mt. Carmel would simply prove too much for Shamokin, winning the game 28-7.
