The varsity football team advanced to the quarterfinals of the WPIAL playoffs after beating Kiski 45-10 on Friday, Nov. 1.

After a touchdown and a field goal, Kiski went up early on the Hawks 10-0, but the Hawks did not lose hope.

In fact, they scored 45 points before Kiski scored again.

The long drive began when Jack Evans punched it in for a touchdown after a long catch and run by Cooper Shoemaker.

Anthony Chiccitt then connected to Sean McGowan for a 62-yard touchdown to give the Hawks the first lead of the game, 14-10.

Sean McGowan later took the direct snap and ran in for the touchdown widening the Hawks’ lead to 21-10.

After a blocked punt, Chiccitt connected again with Cooper Shoemaker for a 13-yard touchdown.

The Hawks went into the locker room with a 31-10 lead after John Gummo’s field goal to close the half.

Sean McGowan came out of the locker room on fire and ran for a 30-yard touchdown. Azalynn Coblentz kicked the extra point to put the Hawks up 36-10.

Jehvonn Lewis would not be outdone and scored a 53-yard touchdown of his own before the end of the third quarter to give the Hawks a huge 42-10 lead.

The Cavaliers would score another touchdown, but it was too late. The Hawks took the victory 45-16.

This win advanced them to play Gateway (9-2) this Friday.

We started off slow, but once we settled in and got the offense rolling we were fine. It was cool to break the home playoff curse and get the first playoff win in a couple of years and to win our last home game ever.”

— Anthony Chiccitt

QB1 Anthony Chiccitt said: “We started off slow, but once we settled in and got the offense rolling we were fine. It was cool to break the home playoff curse and get the first playoff win in a couple of years and to win our last home game ever.”

Gateway is currently ranked second in the state in 5A. They played Shaler last Friday and won 35-21.

This Friday, Nov. 8, the Hawks will travel to Norwin to take on the Gators. The game will kick off at 7 p.m. There will be a fan bus for the game. It costs $3 and you can sign up in the main office. The theme is still being determined. Go out and support your Hawks as they continue their path to the WPIAL championship.
