Frankford Dominates Bartram
Philadelphia, Pa., The Frankford Pioneers righted the ship after two heartbreaking defeats and ousted rival John Bartram High School 44-0 Friday at Frankford field.
The Pioneers came out on their first series and took control with a nine play, 72 yard drive with crisp passing by junior quarterback Tim DiGiorgio and the running of senior running back Kelly Johnson which ended with DiGiorgio’s 18 yard touchdown run. Following a quick three and out by the Maroon Wave, Frankford went right to work with a quick four play drive with Johnson scoring from eight yards out and a 12-0 lead.
After Frankford followed with a safety on Bartram and another offensive series, they needed only two plays and DiGiorgio’s beautiful strike to Savoy Martin for another touchdown from 38 yards and a 22-0 lead.
The Pioneers rounded out the scoring in the second half with DiGiorgio’s TD passes to Aaron Allison and Mike Brown (for eight and two yards) and a Johnson 24 yard run.
Defensively the Pioneers allowed Bartrum only 14 total yards on offense led by James Bailey, Geoffrey Phillippe, Renz Compton, Devon Moore and Kaishiem Poland.
Frankford (D12, AAAA, Public) lost their first two games my identical 27-26 scores against Hatboro-Horsham and Unionville. In essence this team could easily be 3-0 instead of 1-2. Under new ead coach Will Doggett the Pioneers will open conference play with a game versus rival Northeast in what could be a preview of the AAAA Public League championship next week. Bartrum (D12, AAAA, Public) slips to 0-3 and a date next week against George Washington.
