Pa.: Saturday Football

Malvern Prep’s Bobby Hill got behind Frankford’s defense twice in the fourth quarter to seal a 23-20 nonleague road football win yesterday.

With 8 minutes 24 seconds left, Hill sped past the Pioneers for a 20-yard run and caught the two-point conversion pass for the final points of the game.

It was the second of two touchdown runs for Hill, who finished with 89 yards rushing to lead the Friars (2-1).

The Pioneers (1-3) took a brief lead in the third quarter when Tyrell Allen caught his second of two touchdown passes from Mike McGroarty.

Hill School 39, Episcopal Academy 10 — The visiting Blues (2-0) dialed up a superb defensive effort behind end Xavier  Corpening, who had five tackles and one quarterback hurry. Trevor Mack had two solo tackles and one for a loss and added a 3-yard touchdown run on offense. Donte Astheimer scored on touchdown runs of 2, 35 and 2 yards. The Churchmen (2-1) led briefly on Lukas Roggendorff’s 40-yard field goal, but the Blues scored the next 39 points.

Penn Charter 32, Peddie School (N.J.) 13 — Michael Brown got the Quakers (1-2) off to a good start by taking the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown.

Still, Ian Richardson had to rush 27 times for 145 yards to pull out the win and his 5-yard run with eight minutes to go combined with Phil Curry’s extra point were the final points of the game. Richardson rushed for a pair of 7-yard touchdown runs in addition to 4- and 5-yard touchdowns.
