Football Beats EA to Advance to 8-1
Episcopal was missing its franchise rusher and starting quarterback due to injuries, but as Saturday's football game at Penn Charter reached intermission, the Churchmen owned a 17-14 lead.
Second half? Glad you asked.
The Quakers roared to four touchdowns on six possessions and claimed a 42-17 victory, notching an eighth win for the first time since 2006 and giving them a chance to finish with nine for the first time since 1905 if archrival Germantown Academy can be conquered next Saturday.
Headliners were numerous.
Senior John Washington made four catches for 122 yards and two TDs and added a third score on a 1-yard run. Junior Edward Saydee netted 141 yards and two scores on 23 rushes while senior Will Samuel passed 7-for-11 for 153 yards and the two scores to "Wash." On the defense, junior ends Gavin Tygh and Ryan Maloney, counting sacks and TFL, were in on seven stops for losses.
A cool moment occurred right before the game when Dan Rosania, the special needs son of former PC star Bob Rosania OPC '82, served as an honorary captain for the coin toss via the Athletes Helping Athletes program.
