A Football Win and Milestone
Penn Charter's football team has opened the season with five consecutive victories . . . and the most recent triumph closed with a special moment.
Senior Ondrea Hunt, wearing No. 54, (above) made her varsity debut on the final play of Friday night's 35-6 win over host Southern.
As frosh Aaron Maione, a backup quarterback, performed a kneel-down to run out the clock, Ondrea stood nearby as one of his backfield protectors. The play went smoothly and Ondrea entered the record books as PC's (and likely the Inter-Ac's) first female football player.
The Quakers' first two touchdowns were scored by junior Edward Saydee on a screen pass and a rush. Freshman Matthew Marshall also tallied twice on a fumble return and a rush. In between, junior Terence Thompson earned six points by recovering an offensive fumble in the end zone.
Saydee and junior Gavin Tygh made interceptions and the latter added 1 1/2 sacks. Senior Trajan Womack recovered and forced separate fumbles.
PC's final five games will be played in the Inter-Ac. The fun begins Oct. 14 with a 1:30 contest at Malvern.
