After a historic win against Woodland Hills the previous week, the Black Hawks continued to soar this week, defeating the Indians of West Allegheny, 34-13, in their first home game of the season Friday night.

In the first quarter, both teams started out slow on their first drives, going three downs and out both ways. However, in the second drive, Anthony Chiccitt hooked up with Jehvonn Lewis for a 52-yard touchdown pass, followed by an extra point by John Gummo.

West A answered back shortly after with a 76-yard touchdown. Jared Miller blocked the extra point try to make the score 7-6 Hawks.

Later in the first quarter, Troy Volpatti added to the lead with a 16-yard touchdown run.

The rest of the first half was back and forth, but the Hawks went into halftime with a 14-6 lead.

West Allegheny got the ball to start the second half, but the Bethel Park defense forced them to punt.

The Hawks drove down the field in the fourth quarter with momentum. The drive ended with a 14-yard touchdown pass to Jehvonn Lewis for the second time of the night. The Hawks’ touchdown made the lead 20-6.

The Indians connected for a 15-yard touchdown to bring them only one touchdown away from tying the game, but that would be the last time West Allegheny would see the end zone.

In the last quarter of the game, the Hawks drove the ball down the field once again. The drive ended with a Jack Evans 2-yard run. The score now stood 27-13, but the Hawks weren’t done yet.

Will Patrizio added to the lead with a 55-yard pick 6 to pin the nail in the coffin.

The Bethel Park Hawks (2-0) travel to the Shaler Titans (1-2) to try and keep the hot streak alive.
