It was a successful Sunday afternoon for the Gateway Midget football teams, as the squads swept Plum at Antimarino Stadium.

Chilly temperatures and rain bathed the field for much of the day, but the Gateway players didn't let the weather bother them.

The Termites (ages 7-9) opened with a 30-0 victory over Plum, and they evened their record at 4-4.

It was their second shutout in three weeks.

The Termites also shut out Norwin, 28-0, on Sept. 16.

The Mites (ages 10-11) snapped a two-game losing streak with a 12-0 victory over Plum. They now are 3-4 on the season, and all three wins are by shutout.

The Midgets (ages 12-13) celebrated a 19-6 win against Plum and improved to 4-3. Several of the Midgets players were honored earlier in the day during a senior recognition ceremony.

The Mites and Midgets have played one less game than the Termites because their scheduled games with Penn-Trafford on Sept. 1 were postponed.

The Gateway teams continued their push to the playoffs with games on Sunday at Franklin Area.

The Termites play at 1 p.m., and the Mites take the field at 2:30. The Midgets game is slated for 4 p.m.

The games will be played on the Franklin Regional High School football field.
