Times Chronicle & Public Spirit - - OPINION - By Mike Prince

BoWK AELnJWon DnG 3Hnns­bury had been wait­ing all week for this game. fn what has be­come a rather hos­tile ri­valry over the past sev­eral yearsI it was a game which the Ghosts couldn’t wait forI but prob­a­bly would like to for­get com­pletely.

Af­ter Abing­ton took an HDUOy 3-0 OHDG on D fiHOG JoDO Ey 5LFNy CDUUDED, 3Hnns­bury scored P5 of the game’s finDO 41 SoLnWs DnG FUuLsHG Wo a P5-V win over the Ghosts in a Subur­ban lne Na­tional Con­fer­ence matchup at 3HnnsEuUy HLJK 6FKooO on Satur­day night.

qhe win drops the Ghosts to 4-O over­all and O-N in league playI while the cal­cons im­proved to 4-O and now sLW DW 3-0 Ln WKH OHDJuH, good for the only Na­tional Con­fer­ence team with­out an in-league loss.

“qhis ri­valry has be­come KuJH,” AELnJWon TuDUWHUback ay­lan Collins said. “lb­vi­ous­lyI they don’t seem to like us too muchI but f was dy­ing to win. f wanted it so bad.”

And once the game start­edI things only went Abing­ton’s way for a mat­ter of min­utes.

Af­ter the Ghosts went up 3-0, 3HnnsEuUy wDs DEOH Wo use one long drive and then a one-play drive to take a N4-P lead go­ing into the locker rooms.

qhe Ghosts cut the cal­cons lead to only one pos­ses­sion when Collins ran in a four­yard touch­down to cap off a NO-playI 8N-yard drive which lasted less than six min­utes.
