Dramatic Win for Football @ EA

Penn Charter's football team now owns a 6-1 overall record and the latest triumph was posted in dramatic fashion.

Friday night at Episcopal Academy, the Quakers began their final possession 92 yards from the end zone with 5:08 on the clock. Thirteen plays later, off an impressive scramble, senior Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky hit classmate Denarii Beard for a 20-yard touchdown! Fourteen seconds later, the clock read 0:00 and PC (2-1 in Inter-Ac League) owned a 28-21 win.

Hnatkowsky passed 13-for-24 for 171 yards while adding 54 yards on nine rushes. Soph Edward Saydee rushed 21 times for 120 yards and three scores. He also turned four snags into 37 yards and made as many as 15 tackles at safety (six on EA's first drive alone).

Junior John Washington (shown above gathering in a bouncing kickoff as Edward Saydee watches) made an interception, soph Hayden Knighton and senior Bill Costello collected sacks, and solo TFLs were registered by soph Ronnie Ross and seniors Luke Stansfield/Brendan Pell.
