Flag Football Team Freezes Lyco on Bitterly Cold Night

Under the lights ... but not under the weather!

Penn College renewed its extramural flag football rivalry Wednesday night at Lycoming College, a game that started off quickly as both teams scored on their first possessions.  Lycoming took a 12-6 lead midway through the first half.  Penn College soon tied the game, then struck again to take an 18-12 lead at halftime.  Unfortunately for Lycoming, the air wasn’t the coldest thing on the field.  The home team’s offense was shut out the entire second half, and Penn College piled on the points to come away with a 44-12 victory over its crosstown opponent. The Penn College team comprised Bill Marzeski, Cody Snyder, Kyle Mostik, Dalton Millo, Brando Ciocco, Hesse White, Joey Kleman, Matt Klock, Cole Weachock and Cam Newman.
