Rustin controls clock, ticks away Academy Park’s playoff stay

Will Pileggi couldn’t help but flash a wide smile Saturday night. The West Chester Rustin quarterback completed 10 of 11 attempts for 124 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-6 trouncing of fourth-seeded Academy Park in a District 1 Class 5A quarterfinal at Strath Haven.

“It feels pretty good right now,” he said. “I’ve never been this far in the playoffs. We made to (the quarterfinals) last year and that was it for us.”

It’s far from over for the fifth-seeded Golden Knights, who get a rematch with No. 1 Penn Wood in next week’s semifinals. Rustin (9-2) handed Penn Wood (11-1) its only defeat of 2018 back in September.

To say that Rustin dominated AP (9-3) would be an understatement. On the opening drive of regulation, Rustin chewed up 6:22 of clock with a methodical 12-play drive capped off by Michael Covert’s first of four touchdowns.

“We practiced really well this week and came out prepared,” Covert said. “All of the coaches got us ready. We went through all of their schemes with our offense and it showed off tonight.”

Garnet Valley defense ‘fills holes,’ shuts down Quakertown

 Nick Gabos and Danny Bradley each tried to avoid taking credit for a pass break-up in the second half of Garnet Valley’s District 1 Class 6A quarterfinal game against Quakertown.“It definitely wasn’t me,” said Gabos, pointing to his teammate. “It was Bradley.”

Bradley smiled and nodded in affirmation, then said, “Let’s just say it was a team effort.” 

That is the Garnet Valley way. That is oneness.

Doing things well on an individual basis pales in comparison to winning as a team.

Bradley’s tip in the end zone on fourth down halted a Quakertown drive at the 2-yard line. Quakertown had four shots at it, too.

That one play encapsulated third-seeded Garnet Valley’s defensive resurgence following a shaky start. Bradley and Gabos were partially responsible, but so were linemen Adam Oldrati, Cade Brennan, Alex Westburg and many others.

Unionville ground game grinds down Radnor in district quarterfinals

November 10, 2018

By Bruce Adams

For Unionville Friday night, a good ball-control offense was the Indians’ best defense in a 28-7 win against Radnor in the District 1 5A quarterfinals at Prevost Field.

“The key tonight was our ability to run the football,” said Unionville head coach Pat Clark. “Radnor has a really explosive offense, but we kept them off the field, and we finished our drives in the second half.”

Unionville gained 268 yards rushing on 63 carries Friday night, led by junior running back Connor Schilling (30 carries for 174 yards) and senior quarterback Nick Schnaars (21 carries for 83 yards). The Indians picked up 21 first downs, compared to eight for Radnor.

Radnor head coach Tom Ryan said, “We tried everything – we mixed and matched on defense, and I just didn’t have an answer for their run game. Coach Clark does a heck of a job over there – that’s a heck of a football team we just played.”

by Matt Smith

Andrew Pidgeon resigned Wednesday as head coach at Penncrest.

In two seasons, Pidgeon guided the Lions to a 4-17 record. This season, the Lions owned the worst record in Delaware County at 1-9.

“I have a lot of appreciation for the players and the administration. They were phenomenal and really supportive” Pidgeon told the Daily Times. “The players were tough kids. They battled adversity and always left the field with their heads held high. That is something I appreciate from them. While we weren’t great on the field, in terms of the wins and losses, we had incredible relationships built. That is something the stats don’t show.

“I’m thankful for my time there.”
