What a Day for PC Football!
Irish in the House & Another Inter-Ac Win
The argument can be made: This was the coolest day in PC's storied football history.
With PC's players, adorned in special T-shirts, among the witnesses, the fun began in the morning as the new turf field hosted a 45-minute, walk-through practice for Notre Dame and OPC '13 offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey.
After a rough start (14-0 deficit), the fun continued in the afternoon as the Quakers downed Episcopal Academy, 42-35. Junior QB Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky was part of all six TDs, passing for the first five (while going 17-for-21 for 327 yards; 10 short of the school record) and scoring the last one on a QB sneak of roughly four inches. Junior DB Denarii Beard clinched the win with an interception.
Honoring the memory of his grandfather, Stephen Greene, who passed away last Monday, junior WR Chris Tucker turned six catches into 163 yards and three TDs. His 43-yard snag placed the ball on the 3, setting up the winning TD. senior RB Jake McCain, McGlinchey's first cousin, rushed 18 times for 104 yards and scored the final points on a conversion catch.
