PC Football Breaks Streak, Beats Haverford

penn charter football, inter-ac

In nine consecutive losses to Haverford School, Penn Charter's football team yielded an average of 34.7 points and always was burned for at least 21.

Then came Saturday.

Not only did the Quakers end the skid, they did so in semi-comfortable fashion. The final score was 21-7 and PC never trailed.

Juniors Terence Thompson (above) and Ryan Maloney made three tackles apiece behind the line of scrimmage. Senior John Washington deflected two passes while eighth grader Elijah "EJ" Statham recorded 1 1/2 sacks.

As for junior Edward Saydee . . . On the game's second play, he intercepted a pass and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown.

The Quakers' next two scores came courtesy of soph Ryan Bradby's right instep -- field goals of 32 and 34 yards. After the Fords ended the shutout with 6:46 left in the fourth quarter, cutting PC's lead to 13-7, senior Will Samuel fired a slant to Thompson and TT see-ya-latered 80 yards to the end zone.

PC is now 6-1 overall and the final three games will be played at home. More photos.

The water polo squads traveled to Hill School and came back 0-2. The respective scores were 15-5 (boys) and 14-7 (girls).

Soph Lance Rainer (three goals) and senior Alex Koenig (two) led the boys. The girls had six scorers.
