North Penn Life - - SPORTS - By Kev Hunter khunter@jour­nal­reg­is­ter.com

In the fourth quar­ter cri­day nightI Soud­er­ton Area’s run­ning game started tak­ing over and the Big oed also got a piv­otalI game-ty­ing touch­down from their spe­cial teams.

But Soud­er­ton just could not stop In­di­ans quar­ter­back Tom Pan­coast.

Pan­coast’s P0-yard touch- down run was the dif­fer­ence in Unionville’s O9-OP win over the Big oed in a non­league con­test at Soud­er­ton.

“Tom Pan­coast is a fan­tas­tic ath­leteI” Soud­er­ton coach bd Gal­lagher said. “ee re­ally put the team on his back and won the game for them.”

Pan­coast had bro­ken a 1S1S tie early in the fourth on a S1-yard scor­ing run. The verVDWLOH QB fiQLVKHG wLWK 181 yards and two touch­downs on 1T car­ries and he also threw for TP yards and a touch­down.

“The offensive line was open­ing up some pretty big holes and I only had to win a one-on-one to pick up a big gainI” Pan­coast said of his key runs. “Com­ing all the way up here to play a Subur­ban One teamI this was a re­ally big win for us.”

Af­ter Pan­coast broke free IRU KLV fiUVW VFRUH, 6RuGer­ton’s An­thony Wil­liams took the en­su­ing kick­off all the way back 90 yards for a touch­downI ty­ing it OP-OP.

“That was huge. The block­ing was very good on our wedge re­turn and An­thony Wil­liams is a very spe­cial ath­leteI” GDOODJKHU VDLG. “, fiJuUHG RQFH he gets a seamI I knew he could take it all the way in.”

The In­di­ans EO-0) then used a nine-play driveI capped by Pan­coast’s sec­ond score with 1W5T to playI to take the lead for good.

“It was open­ing upI and un­for­tu­nately we didn’t re­ally get to do it againI” Galla- gher said. “We had the kick­off re­turn for a touch­downI which was niceI but when we got the ball back again with a minute and a halfI Ethere wasn’t enough time).”

The two teams com­bined for OT points in a wild fourth quar­ter.

“They’re a good football team. I give them a lot of cred­itI” Gal­lagher said. “Their kids played very hardI they’re well-coachedI well-dis­ci­plined kids. I told our kidsI ‘you’re go­ing to EH SODyLQJ fivH PRUH WHDPV like that — play­off-cal­iber teamsI and if we want to get to the play­offsI we’re go­ing to have to beat at least four of themI so we have to step it up.’” 8 0 0 9 813 - 29 014 - 23 Unionville Soud­er­ton Scor­ing U - Tim Christo­pher 32 pass from Tom Pan­coast (Dom DiBi­ag­gio pass from Christo­pher), 5:42 S - Jeff Wolf 33 field goal, 8:14 S - Jar­rett Rein­hard 14 pass from A.J.
