Malvern Prep Loses to LaSalle High School in the 4th Quarter

The goal of a football game is to win, but the Malvern Prep Friars have more than that in mind. The LaSalle game brought out the best in the 2019-20 team and coaching staff. Eager, positive attitude is the only way to describe the energy that this team let out. The LaSalle High School Explorers came out on Saturday ready to match anything and everything Malvern sent their way.

The defensive and offensive line were nothing but exceptional. The defense had two back to back stops on the 10-15-yard line; there were plenty of “money downs”, (defense is on the 3 rd down before a turnover in possession), let out from the boys on the sideline. Caimin Hayes (#31) had an interception to run the ball back to the 8-yard line for a Malvern Prep first down. Kellen Mathias (#1) blocked the LaSalle’s quarterbacks pass twice in the second half. I spoke to senior Cole Deary (#51) about the defense this game and he explained that, “We fought for four quarters and didn’t stop. Yes, it didn’t go our way, but it happens, and we prepare for Imhotep.”

Offensively this team didn’t quit. D’Angelo Stocker (#4) was frequently seen making running tackles and showing the adversity he is skilled with on the field. He shares comments about this game such as, “We are a very versatile team, and we just have to find our rhythm in discipline to earn victory.” The Lasalle Explorers brought good competition and challenged the Friars. Bryce Pippin (#11) started quarterback for the Friars due to Senior Lonnie White (#10) being out with an injury. As a freshman playing on an elite high school football team, Pippin locks the trust with his team proving his fit for the position. With just a week of practice to prepare for his first varsity football game on Saturday, Pippin still accomplished to help the team score two successful touchdowns. Pippin showed out with a deep pass to Tyler Tinson (#2) to bring the team to score following that play. He showed no fear, and only wanted to learn from his teammates and coaches after each play.

Coach ends the game with final remarks like, “We played well, and sometimes when you play well, you’ll still lose and that’s ok.” Coach lifts them up with excitement for the future and doesn’t let them feel heavy-hearted from the end score of 13-24. The Malvern Prep Friars will be hosted by Imhotep Charter High School this Friday, September 13 th at 6:30 p.m.
