PHILADELPHIA The Penn sprint football team is headed to northern Pennsylvania to take on Mansfield Saturday at 1 p.m. This is the first all-time meeting of the two teams, as the Mansfield sprint football program is a new addition to the CSFL in 2008.
The Quakers head into tomorrow’s matchup with a 2-0 record and have outscored their opponents 60-3; Penn’s two wins were from Ivy rivals Princeton and Cornell.
Penn will look to continue its dominating offense that is led by senior quarterback Michael D'Angelo, who has accumulated 432 total offensive yards and five touchdowns.
378 of those yards are attributed to his passing game, which is anchored by receivers Marten Basta with 128 yards and two touchdowns and Clarke Armatis who has accumulated 119 yards and one touchdown.
The Quakers rushing offense has also proven to be effective. Mike Bagnoli leads the team with 119 total rushing yards, followed by Wifi Fernandez with 106 and one touchdown.
Across the line from Penn’s stable offense is the hard-hitting defense. The Quakers have limited their opponents to only nine first downs and 170 total offensive yards. Michael McMullen tops the list with seven solo tackles and Gage O'Connell with six.
Saturday, Penn will look to shut down the Mounties’ young team. Only three of the Mounties have played collegiate football, and in their first-ever program game last weekend they fell to Cornell, 35-0.
The game will be broadcast over the internet at GoMounties.com.
