Weekend Action in XC, Polo, Football

Not often does a football team return just four starters – with NO linemen among 'em – and start its season with three straight wins.
Your Penn Charter Quakers have done so. Impressively, at that.

Saturday, coach Tommy Coyle's squad rolled to a 45-8 win over visiting Interboro while upping its scoring advantage to 107-20.
Two returnees, senior John Washington and junior Edward Saydee, paced the conquest by scoring two touchdowns apiece. The former's scores came on a 53-yard punt return and a 26-yard pass from senior Will Samuel while Saydee bulled/raced/juked for 184 yards on 19 carries. His TDs covered 10 and 72 yards and a 46-yard run was an absolute gem.
The other returnees are junior Terence Thompson (3-39 receiving, two TFL) and senior Trajan Womack.
Junior Jalon Jones and frosh Matthew Marshall also ran for TDs and soph Ryan Bradby contributed nine points with six PAT and a field goal. More football photos.
Boys cross country traveled to Tyler State Park, in Newtown, to compete in an invitational event hosted by Council Rock North. Frosh Drew Gillespie was PC’s top performer with a time of 20 minutes, 1.88 seconds. Senior Blaise Ciarrocchi was about 10 seconds behind at 20:11.28.
Girls water polo competed in multi-tiered event over Friday and Saturday, going 2-2 against Exeter, Springfield (wins), North Penn and Pennridge (losses).
Coach Brian Hecker was especially pleased that 10 players scored goals overall, and that junior Molly Visco, soph Sam Boyes, Sally Foley, soph Hayley Hunt and senior Greer Guyer pumped home two apiece vs. Exeter.
In the Pennridge game, juniors Zoe Tierno (seven saves on 11 shots) and Abbey Quinn (seven on eight) turned in strong performances while sharing goaltending duties. The fourth quarter started with the score at 2-2 before a few mistakes enabled Pennridge to triumph.
Boys water polo went 1-3 in its version of the two-day event with losses to Reading, Episcopal Academy and St. Benedict’s (NJ) and a 12-10 win over Perkiomen Valley.
Senior Sean McLafferty found the net six times in the victory and soph Bret Brogan hustled for four steals.
