Penn Charter Pushes by Patriots in Second Half

PHILADELPHIA — It took a strong second-half effort by the Quakers to take down the Patriots in the 131st edition of the Germantown Academy-Penn Charter football game. In the final two quarters, Penn Charter outscored GA 19-3 on their way to a 26-17 victory.

After fumbling the ball away on their first two offensive possessions, GA found their rhythm the third time they took the field.

Lacey Snowden ’21 threw a 25 yard touchdown pass to Timothy Ruth ’19 with 2:55 left in the first quarter, capping off a six-play drive.

However, Head Coach Matt Dence wanted more.

After recovering an onside kick, the Patriots offense took the field again, and again scored. This time it was Tanner Long ’18 punching it in on the ground from two yards out.

Penn Charter would find the endzone before the half, making the score 14-7 at the break.

The teams traded punts in the third quarter before PC scored on a four-yard pass play. However, the extra point was no good.

The Quakers would continue to roll on offense, scoring 10 more points before the Patriots could add a field goal, giving PC a 23-17 lead.

With 2:10 left in the game, GA had the chance to drive down the field and regain control of the game. However, they would throw an interception, their fourth turnover of the game.

PC turned the pick into points, icing the game with a field goal.

The Patriots end the season with a 4-5 overall record (1-3 in Inter-Ac play).
