The Penn Hills Indians varsity football team dropped to 1-1 in conference play, following a 14-0 loss to Peters Township on Friday night.
Despite outgaining them in total yards —and despite Peters Township putting up, literally, zero passing yards — the Indians fell short on a night that saw quarterback Darius Holloway go 9-for-15 for 126 yards.
Peters Township's backfield, comprised of Marcus Ubinger, Mike Minjock and John Fazio, combined for the team's entire offense, racking up 190 yards on 30 carries. Aaron Bailey rushed for 73 yards on 15 carries for the Indians, but couldn't find the endzone.
The Indians were also set back by 10 penalties for 90 yards.
Next up is a Thursday night game against Baldwin High School, which will be televised by Root Sports and will feature a special halftime ceremony honoring former varsity football coach Andy Urbanic, as well as recognize the 75th anniversary of Penn Hills football.
