On Friday, Sept. 21, the Hawks suffered a tough loss to the Central Catholic Vikings with a score of 7-6.

“The rain played a huge role in the struggling offensive play on Friday, and the defense had our number,” said senior running back Luke Surunis.

Central Catholic scored on the first drive, and that was their only score of the game. The Hawks kept them from scoring the rest of the game. The game showcased a battle between the defense since the rain proved to be a nemesis

Offensively, junior kicker John Gummo scored a field goal roughly at the 35-yard line towards the end of the first half.

The only other points the Hawks scored was in the third quarter, and it being another field goal by Gummo, making the score 7-6.

With just 14 seconds left in the game, the Hawks were able to get the ball back and had the chance to score another field goal, but unfortunately they came up short.

Bethel Park is now 1-1  in section and 2-2 overall. The Hawks will travel to Moon this Friday the 25th, and hope to improve their record.
