PC/GA Football Since 1887
Some historical perspective ... Penn Charter and Germantown Academy will compete in football for the 129th consecutive year today (@ PC, starting time is 1:30pm) and that fact alone calls for major love.
GA won the first battle, 20-6, on Nov. 18, 1887, but PC holds a whopping lead at 82-35-1. The photo above shows the 1887 PC squad.
The Quakers captured 13 consecutive meetings through 2012, though more than half of those games were close: 22-16 in '03, 14-7 in '04, 27-24 in '07, 6-0 in '08, 25-22 in '09 and 16-14 in 10. The '07 game featured an all-time ending as PC won on a last-play, 50-yard, hook-and-lateral goodie that featured QB John Ryan, Blaise Fullen and Eddie Bambino (final 33 yards). Enjoy the moment on YouTube, PC fans.
GA now owns a two-game winning streak (42-35 in '13, 40-29 in '14) and the '13 contest featured great efforts by QB Hayes Nolte (17-for-20, 279) and WR Kyle Donahue (7-141).
This series almost was interrupted in 1947. PC dropped out of the Inter-Ac for that season and there were many doom-and-gloom stories about how the series would be falling by the wayside. But the teams, thank goodness, DID play, and PC rejoined the I-A in '48.
