It didn’t take long for Penn-Trafford to get on the board against Albert Gallatin. It took them 32 seconds to be exact after a long run by junior running back Caleb Lisbon. Penn-Trafford’s offense wouldn’t stop there in the first quarter with two touchdowns by junior running back Sam Fanelli that made it 21 to nothing. Another touchdown was a screen pass from junior quarterback Gabe Dunlap to senior wide receiver Dimitri George made it 28 to 0 at the end of the first quarter.
On the first play of the second quarter, Dunlap connected with senior tight end Niko Rosso to make the score 35 to 0. Dunlap would connect with Lisbon on a screen pass to make it 42 to nothing. The Warriors would strike again on a touchdown by senior running back Jon Peduzzi to make it 49-0. With 13 seconds left in the second quarter, Penn-Trafford’s junior linebacker Cole Defillippo ran back a fumble recovery for a touchdown to make the score 56-0 at the half.
When the game started in the second half, both teams agreed to play 8 minute quarters with a running clock. The rain was coming down but that didn’t slow down the Warriors offense. Penn-Trafford’s sophomore running back Nate Frye would run one into the endzone to make it 63-0 in the third quarter.
The last score of the game was made by sophomore wide receiver Chase Vecchio when he ran it in as the wildcat quarterback to make the final 70-0.
With the final score of 70-0, the Warriors set a school record for largest margin of victory in a football game. The former record was also set against Albert Gallatin in 1993 when the Warriors beat the Colonials 68-0. Penn-Trafford will play Plum on the road and Albert Gallatin will play Franklin Regional at home next week.
