LaSalle Defeats Judge in PCL Semi

Written by: on Saturday, November 6th, 2010. Follow Armand Vanore on Twitter.


Levittown, Pa., One day after being selected as a first team Philadelphia Area All Catholic Wide Receiver, LaSalle’s Kevin Forster was called on to quarterback the defending AAAA state champions and did not disappoint. The Explorers conquered Father Judge 34-7  in the semifinals of the District 12 PCL conference last night at Harry Truman High field.

LaSalle (9-1) got started early when Mike Piscopo intercepted a Judge pass and raced 32 yards for a score. On LaSalle’s next series Forster took off on a fake option and ran for a 48 yard TD on the right side giving them a 14-0 lead. Just before the half, Forster copied his first big run with another 47 yard burst and a TD increasing their lead at half to 21-0.

LaSalle immediately continued to roll in the second half when Sophomore Sean Coleman returned a Judge punt 65 yards for another touchdown which all but sealed their control of the game.

LaSalle coach Drew Gordon opted to go with Forster at QB over starter Matt Magarity, who is recovering from a concussion in a previous game. Forster, who has shined as a multipurpose player, ran for over 100 yards in the first half before being replaced in the second half by Magarity. He adds a quality of depth to a backfield that already has stars in Jamal Abdur-Rahman and Tim Wade.

LaSalle’s defense was also dominant.  Judge, with their normally dominant running attack could not get much going due to the run stuffing defense the Explorers displayed especially the play of Ted Marino and Ryan Geiger. Connor Daly and Joe Naji were also in on a variety of plays on the defensive end.

Up next for LaSalle will be the winner of tonight’s matchup of Roman Catholic and St. Joe Prep. Judge finishes with a 7-3 mark and played  valiantly in defeat.

    Bob, I’m not sure why all the praise for a very underachieving SJP squad. Roman is where they are because they outplayed SJP and from what I saw against LaSalle, SJP has very little to write home about!

    Go Explorers!

    Keir didn’t play in the first meeting between Roman Lasalle. He makes Roman a different team. Let them play it before you hand Lasalle the title.

    Forester is a great all around athlete; if Magarity isn’t able to go next weekend, Forester will again fill in with a great effort!

    Magarity did not play. Chris Kane played QB in the second half.
