Philadelphia, Pa. - Penn JV broke out the alternate red home jerseys to host Delaware Valley and put up another impressive performance scoring 24 points in the first half and causing four turnovers on defense. Penn defeated Delaware Valley 44-7 on Monday.
Keiffer Garton continued to shine in JV action, accounting
for two touchdowns through the air. His most impressive strike of the day was
an over the shoulder grab by tight end Brian Leone. Shifty sophomore, Blake
Defensive End, Mark Smith made the most of the 41 snaps the defense had all game. During a zone blitz, Smith dropped into coverage and the ball was thrown right to him for an easy turnover. Jared Sholly was stout at the point of attack and added a sack. Steven O'Hayon had an impressive day at cornerback, picking off two passes and playing a vital role in run support. O’Hayon made a finger tip grab on the sideline for his first pick of the afternoon and followed it up by displaying his vertical leaping ability to nab his second INT.
Transfer David Macknet caught the eye of Head Football
Coach, Al Bagnoli, with his three solo special team tackles. The kick off
coverage maven, Macknet came to Penn when
Greg Van Roten anchored the offensive line at center for most of the day until things got a little chippy at the end. The vocal competitor gave way to Ryan Narcum, who previously logged playing time at guard. Narcum got his first chance of the season to hike the football.
