Troy Volpatti carries the ball during the Hawks game vs. West Allegheny on Oct. 1. The Hawks won 26-10 in the “Gold Star” game.

The football team remains undefeated in conference play after a victory against South Fayette last Friday, Oct. 8 in South Fayette. The Hawks won 27-7 after a lightning delay ended the game.

“That was the most passion our team has played with all year, and it really showed. Our coaches came up with a great game plan, and we came out physical and got it done,” said captain Joe Thimons, who plays fullback and defensive end for the Hawks.

The Hawks definitely did come out physical. They scored right away on the opening drive. This came on a 6-yard rush from Troy Volpatti.

Volpatti rushed for 181 yards and three touchdowns on the night.

The fourth touchdown came on a 1-yard rush by Max Blanc.

On defense, the Hawks held the Lions scoreless until the third quarter. They gave up only one touchdown to the Lions on Friday.

With the win, they improved to 4-3 overall and 2-0 in the section. They are tied for first within their section and look to remain at the top after next week.

The Hawks take on Peters Township on Friday, Oct. 15 at Black Hawk Stadium.

They then travel to Moon and finish out conference play at home against Upper St. Clair.
