    Public struggle

    The Public League’s misfortunes in the Carpenter Cup continued on Sunday, dropping its 24th straight decision. The league’s only win came in 1990.

    The old adage states that the only two guarantees in life are death and taxes. If there was room to add a third proclamation, it might state, “Death, taxes and, come early June, the Public League will lose its first and only Carpenter Cup contest.”

    High School Football Round-Up: Week 3

    Outlook: The Railsplitters have sandwiched the season’s only win (a 6-2 victory in Week 2 over Overbrook) around two ugly losses, first a 47-21 defeat at Truman to open the year followed by last week’s 31-0 shutout at the hands of Upper Dublin. Lincoln hasn’t seen much develop in its rushing attack (LeRon Strothers leads the way with 56 yards on 20 carries), but QB Devon Thompkins has shown signs of improvement in taking over for the graduated Miguel Sanchez. Though he’s thrown only one TD pass so far, Thompkins has completed 28 of 60 passes for 306 yards, and is developing a nice chemistry with Ryan transfer Travon Williams, who has caught half of Thompkins’ passes for 164 yards. Head coach Ed McGettigan’s team will continue trying to get better when it opens up Class AAAA Silver Division play at South Philadelphia; after two defeats to open their season, the Rams responded last week with a 33-14 win over Valley Forge Military Academy.
