A truly historic PC/GA face-off morphed from a single day to a Covid-safer week of competitions. Both schools were gratified that the 134th PC/GA football game, the longest continuous high school football rivalry in the country, went forward. The streak is unbroken!
That 134th game turned out to be an instant classic. Late in the fourth quarter, PC went ahead for the first time, 22-21, on a bomb from quarterback Colin Schumm into the hands of receiver Aaron Maione, who ran it in for the touchdown.
Back in possession, GA marched down the field, but stalled. Fourth down and three, the Patriots lined up, with 9.5 seconds on the clock, for what looked like a sure field goal to win. But Maione charged around the GA defenders and blocked the kick.
Maione was honored with the Geis Trophy, and the football victory, combined with PC wins in boys and girls water polo, girls soccer and boys cross country, won the 2020 PC/GA Competition Cup.
Because of Covid-19, the games were played with very, very limited spectators (essential school personnel and three guests for each senior player). We missed seeing the thousands of spirited fans who turn out for this rivalry.
