Three Contests, Two Wins for PC

penn charter football, innter-ac

Every football team would be thrilled to average a first down per play, and it doesn't happen too often.

In the first half of a non-league game Friday night at Bonner-Prendergast, Penn Charter averaged almost three first downs per play.

Ten plays. This whopping total: 272 yards.

Crazy, right?

The big gainers were a 46-yard touchdown run by junior Edward Saydee, a 82-yard pass to Saydee from senior Will Samuel that set up a 9-yard scoring run by junior Jalon Jones, a 56-yard TD pass from Samuel to Saydee and a 57-yard scoring run by junior Gavin Tygh.

Even one of the two second-half scores, Samuel's 38-yard keeper, covered an impressive distance.

In all, the Quakers gained 389 yards on just 28 plays (13.9) while claiming a 42-6 win.

Senior John Washington and frosh Marshall Marshall aided the defense with interceptions. Also, Tygh mixed a sack with 2.5 TFLs while junior Terence Thompson and eighth-grader Elijah "EJ" Statham posted identical totals (1/1.5) in those categories. More photos.

Two other PC teams also played Friday.

At Huntingdon Valley CC, golf bested St. Joseph's Prep, 232-245, in non-league action. Senior Brian Isztwan fired a 2-under 33. Classmate Marker Angelakis shot a 38 and frosh Patrick Isztwan, Brian's brother, was right behind at 39.

Playing at home, field hockey dropped a 2-1 decision to Shipley. Senior Catherine "Catmac" McInerney shot the corner and soph Avery Myers tapped it in from the post.
