Written by: John Robbins on Saturday, October 20th, 2018
It was salute to service night for Penn-Trafford, and as the American flag flew high over Warrior Stadium on the ladder of a fire truck, the Penn-Trafford Warriors crushed the Hampton Talbots. Warriors’ junior quarterback Gabe Dunlap ran into the endzone about mid way through the first quarter which would be the only score of the quarter.
Dunlap would score early in the second quarter with his second rushing touchdown of the night to make the score 14-0. On the next Penn-Trafford drive, the Warriors would use a backwards pass from Dunlap to sophomore all-purpose player Ethan Carr then Carr would find senior wide receiver Dimitri George for the touchdown to make it 21-0 with 7:31 left in the second. After a Hampton fumbled, the Warriors would take the ball and score a touchdown on a screen pass from Dunlap to junior running back Caleb Lisbon. That would make the score 28-0 at the half.
In the third quarter, Dunlap would find the endzone for the fourth time as he would roll out and fire a pass to George which made the score 35-0. There would be no other points scored in the third quarter.
Finally in the fourth quarter, Hampton would manage to break the shutout with a touchdown by senior quarterback Max Obenrader but the point after attempt would be missed to make it 35-6. Penn-Trafford would put the final points on the board when sophomore running back Brad Ford ran into the endzone to make the final 42-6 in favor of the Warriors.
Penn-Trafford will play Franklin Regional on senior night in their final game of the regular season. The Warriors will look to lock up the second place spot in the 5A Big East conference and home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs if they win. Hampton will play at Mars in their final game of the season.
