Whitehall Takes Care of Business Over Panthers 38-14
Tonight a subdued crowd filled Zephyr Stadium. Whitehall took to the field with heavy hearts as word of legendary basketball coach Dick Tracy’s passing resonated through the township. Coach would have been proud of the effort of this talented team as they easily handled the Panthers on a hot and humid evening 38-14.
Gianni Sinatore, the only returning starter for the Zephs, ran for two scores and threw for another, a 72 yard strike to Dez Boykin as Whitehall opened up a 28-6 halftime lead.
“We did some good things, but there is also a lot we need to work on.” Stated Coach Brian Gilbert. “It was a tough day, hearing the passing of Coach Tracy,” he added. “Overall it was a good effort. We played a lot of players which in this heat is a positive.” We still have work ahead of us, but we are going in the right direction.
Whitehall scored again early in the second half after holding the Panthers inside their own 5 yard line. The Zephyr special teams blocked a punt and recovered the ball in the end zone. Whitehall concluded their scoring on a 19 yard field goal late in the fourth quarter.
West’s only scores came on a Matt Musseden 14 yard run in the second quarter and Steve Bowen tallied a touchdown late in fourth quarter on an 11 yard run.
“We have a lot of work to do, in order for us to compete with these teams.” West’s coach James McCarroll said after the game. “We just have to keep working hard,” he concluded.
West’s next opponent will be Stroudsburg at home. Whitehall will travel to J. Birney Crum Stadium to face Allentown Central Catholic.
