Coming into the game Guilfoyle was looking to build on their 5-0 record and Penn Cambria was looking to add a mark to their win column. Both teams were looking for a win, but Guilfoyle was able to get the win, topping the Panthers 35-0.
Penn Cambria chose to receive the McGhee kickoff, sailing through the endzone and putting the Panthers on the 20 yard line. After a fumble on the first snap the Panthers were unable to move the sticks and punted the ball to the Marauders. The Marauders moved the ball to the Panthers 8 yard line where QB Mark Conrad handed the ball off to Michael Berish who was able to put the first points on the scoreboard with 9:38 left in the first.
Penn Cambria again was unable to gain ground, putting the ball back into Guilfoyle’s possession. Guilfoyle was able to move into the redzone, but the drive stalled inside the 10. On the proceeding drive, Panthers QB Tanner Perrone threw the ball downfield only to have it picked off by Daniel Potopa. On the following play Michael Berish found the endzone again this time from 32 yards out with 51 seconds left before the second quarter.
The Panthers kept with the trend and turned the ball over again. This time Bishop Guilfoyle’s John Fanelli punched another one in from 10 yards.
Guilfoyle got the ball back again and were in scoring position when Luke Wills fumbled the ball through the endzone resulting in a Penn Cambria possession. Although the Panthers got some momentum, it wasn’t enough to swing the game, turning the ball back over to the Marauders. Michael Berish would find the endzone for his 3rd touchdown of the night. Once the Panthers got the ball and got moving again John Fanelli intercepted a pass, setting up Josh Yasulitis for a Touchdown run, making the score 35-0. Penn Cambria was unable to make much ground throughout the night, having a few bursts from RB Richard Perrone, but unable to make much headway against the Marauder defense, totaling only 80 yards from scrimmage the entire game. Guilfoyle handed the game over to the junior varsity team for the second half, swapping possessions with no scoring.
The Marauders will face Bishop Carroll next week looking for their 7th win of the season while the Panthers will face Cambria Heights looking for their first win.
