Ethan Shine scored twice for the Patriots (5-1, 2-1 SOL).
Harry S. Truman 8, Bensalem 7
Harry S. Truman broke a four-game losing streak with an 8-7 win over host Bensalem on Friday night. With two minutes, 21 seconds remaining, a 13-yard touchdown run by third-string quarterback Rondell Bradley, followed by a two-point conversion pass from Bradley to Jayden Sangmeister, was all the scoring the Tigers (2-4) would need.
Bensalem (2-4) lost starting quarterback Zack Roberts due to injury in the second quarter, but freshman Sanders Hollis stepped in and connected on a 21-yard touchdown pass to Zyan Greene in the final minute of the first half. That score kept the Owls in the lead until the end.
Neshaminy 7, Pennridge 6
Neshaminy blocked a potential Pennridge go-ahead field goal in the final two minutes and then held off the host Rams again inside the Neshaminy 15-yard line in the closing seconds to secure a 7-6 win in Suburban One League National Conference play Friday.
The win moved Neshaminy to 4-2 on the season while Pennridge slipped to 2-4.
North Penn 35, Central Bucks South 21
Against the Titans, North Penn made two fourth-and-short stops, including a one-on-one stuff by David Dawes of CB South’s Sebastian Pacchione in the second half, and a stop on the 1-yard line on the final play of the first half.
Defensive plays like that win games, and for the North Penn ‘D’, it could be season-changing. Dawes scored three rushing touchdowns, and Yazeed Hayes returned a kickoff 93 yards for a score to seal the deal.
Souderton 34, Quakertown 20
Souderton jumped out to a 21-0 lead and went on to beat host Quakertown, 34-20, in an SOL Continental Division game.
Senior quarterback Jared Zimmerman threw for 174 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score. Souderton also got field goals of 36 and 33 yards from Ty Quintois. It was the first conference loss for Quakertown in two years, allowing Souderton to take the 309 Bowl trophy back home.
Lansdale Catholic 34, Archbishop Carroll 2
After a scoreless first quarter, the Crusaders were raring to go, putting up 34 unanswered points, before Carroll broke the shutout with a safety in the fourth period. Efrain Quiles and Ian Gramlich scored back-to-back rushing touchdowns on short yardage to open the second quarter. Gio Zito recovered Carroll’s fumbled kickoff and took it to the house for a score, and then QB Cole Meehan got in on the fun. Meehan tossed a 73-yarder to Yeboa Cobbold for a TD, and then ran one in himself from 20 yards to cap the scoring. The Crusaders are 5-1 a year after they won just one game.
Upper Dublin 41, Council Rock North 13
CR North had a tough matchup visiting the undefeated Upper Dublin Cardinals. Nyfise McIntyre surpassed 100 rushing yards before the end of the first quarter and had two touchdowns by halftime for the Cardinals. CR North got on the board midway through the third quarter, on Julian Matera’s 11-yard touchdown pass to Will Scibona. Jackson Farley added a 16-yard touchdown run in the fourth for the Indians. Upper Dublin remains unbeaten, improving to 6-0, while CR North falls to 1-5.
Palisades 35, Panther Valley 7
Panther Valley scored first, but it was the Pirates putting points on the board the rest of the way. Steven Lilly scored two rushing touchdowns, as well as a receiving TD. Quarterback Kia Stiansen hit Lilly with a 17-yard strike, then ran one in himself from 10 yards as the Pirates rolled to the win and improved to 4-2.
Upper Moreland 42, William Tennent 14
Linebacker Paul Meyers and defensive end Haleem Muhammad highlighted an impressive defensive performance from the Golden Bears. Both recovered Tennent fumbles and scored touchdowns on the return. On offense, the Golden Bears spread the ball around, with Stephen Broderick, Isaiah Lyles and Hasson Johnson all finding the endzone. Upper Moreland improved to 5-1 and will play winless Wissahickon next week, while Tennent fell to 1-4 and will have to contend with Plymouth Whitemarsh on Friday.
Central Bucks West 27, Abington 0
The Bucks received contributions from all over the lineup in securing their second straight win, with a shutout to boot. Eli Boehm, who scored three TDs in last week’s upset of North Penn, found the end zone twice in this one. Ganz Cooper threw a long touchdown pass to Connor McFadden, and then ran one in himself. Sophomores AJ Gerace and Ryan Clemens stepped up on the defensive line to help secure the shutout. The Bucks evened their record at 3-3 and will host Neshaminy next week, while Abington falls to 2-4 and will host CB South.
Council Rock South 46, Hatboro-Horsham 0
Chase Myers rushed for 124 yards and one touchdown as the Golden Hawks dominated on both sides of the ball. Chase Ennis threw for 116 yards and a touchdown, and also added 67 yards and a TD on the ground. The Golden Hawks evened their record at 3-3, and have a couple tough games coming up, with undefeated Upper Dublin next on the schedule.
Pennington School 35, New Hope-Solebury 13
Saturday, Oct. 1
La Salle 21, Calvert Hall School (MD) 20
Calvert Hall scored the first touchdown of the game, but the Explorers were determined to earn their second win of the season, and their first since the season opener. Gavin Muller quickly tied things up at 7-7 with a rushing touchdown, and Stevie Davis then scored on a 30-yard swing pass to go ahead 14-7. Freshman quarterback Gavin Sidwar added another touchdown on a QB sneak. Calvert Hall made a late-game comeback, but La Salle’s defense and special teams stepped up to thwart the attempt, first by intercepting the Calvert quarterback with under two minutes to go. Then, after a quick Calvert score, Darold Dengohe made a game-saving play, blocking the extra point attempt that would have tied the game.
St. Joseph's Prep 35, Archbishop Wood 6
Markus Dixon had a touchdown reception for the Vikings against the PCL juggernaut St. Joe’s Prep. Unfortunately, things don’t get any easier in Week 7, when the Vikings take on 5-1 Roman Catholic.
Conwell-Egan 14, West Catholic 7
Gavin Pond led the Eagles defense with 14 tackles, eight for a loss, in a defensive battle between the Catholic League rivals.
Germantown Academy 37, Peddie School 27
The Patriots improved to 5-0 with an impressive offensive outing against Peddie School. The Patriots got everyone involved in this one, with Seamus Knox leading the way with 103 yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback Tristan Machado had a very efficient day, completing 16 of 18 pass attempts for 218 yards and two touchdowns. Aidan Donahue added two touchdowns, and Evan Spivey tallied 98 yards. Next week will be a big one for the Patriots and the Inter-Ac, as Germantown Academy plays Episcopal Academy in the league opener. Episcopal is also 5-0.
George School 52, Harlem Capital Prep 18
The Cougars’ offense was unstoppable in the lopsided win against Capital Prep. Quarterback Jagger Matera had a memorable game, completing 17 out of 23 pass attempts for 255 yards and five touchdowns. Kendall Gordon added three receptions, all of which went for touchdowns, and 128 receiving yards. Frank Marchese led the ground game with 134 rushing yards and a touchdown.
