Friday September 3, 2010 - Cresson, PA
Penn Cambria 16, Bishop McCort 14 (0-1)

Bishop McCort entered the 2010 season with 22 consecutive regular season wins, but that streak was snapped by Penn Cambria which defeated the Crushers by a score of 16-14.  It was also the first road loss since dropping a 14-13 decision to Bishop Carroll in 2005 which was held at the Panthers' field.

On PC's first drive, Anthony LaRue intercepted a pass and carried it to the opponents' 38.  Seven plays later Joe Hrbal ran 15 yards for the score.  Sophomore Jordan Spangler kicked the extra point for a 7-0 lead with just under five minutes gone in the contest.  Penn Cambria also used seven plays to pick up its first touchdown of the season which was an eleven yard run by Jordan Fuller.  A.J. St. Clair ran for the two point conversion which put the Panthers ahead 8-7 with 4:21 remaining in the first period.

Penn Cambria earned its second TD with an 11 play, 94 yard drive capped by an 8 yard run by Fuller.  Andrew Buck ran for the two points to make the score 16-7 at the 9:22 mark.  The key play in the drive was a 50 yard pass from Buck to Billy Burns.

LaRue returned the ensuing kickoff 45 yards to the PC 43.  Zach Varga carried the ball seven times for 37 yards setting up Hrbal's second touchdown of the game from 8 yards out.  Spangler's PAT set the halftime score at 16-14.

Neither team was able to score in the second half.

Head coach Ken Salem's remarks to his team after the game were identical to those addressed to the media.  "We had great effort tonight, but we just lacked execution.  Execution wins football games and we are going to work hard to become a more disciplined team and we're going to improve.  We will not make excuses about letter winners or experience."
