main image

In a see-saw battle that had 4 lead changes in the final 8 minutes of game, PCA came up big on its final drive of the game. After Laurens took a 38 - 36 lead with 1:29 seconds on the clock, it looked as though our mighty Eagles might fall. However, through guts and grit, they kept battling, even on a 4th and 11 pressure packed situation, the guys executed flawlessly. With a nice throw from Connor Rourk, Wyatt Shogren made a clutch catch for 11 yards to set our Eagles up with a 1st and 10 from Laurens 33 yard line. On first down, with 15.7 seconds on the clock, Connor Rourk dropped back and lofted a long spiral into the air to Carson Rourk, who made a nice move to beat his man deep and make the game winning catch.

"What a great win and epic come back by guys who refuse to quit or get rattled. We always talk about controlling what you can control during a game... meaning if you focus on doing YOUR job and only YOUR job, slowly and surely, you will overcome any obstacle in your way. When I looked into this teams eyes when we started our last drive with 1:29 left in the game...all I saw was determination and a quiet confidence that they were going to go get this win".

Offensively, PCA was paced by Connor Rourk's 176 yards rushing w/3 TD's and 183 yards and 3 TD's through the air. Wyatt Shogren added 5 catches for 111 yards including a long TD catch of 69 yards. Carson Rourk has 5 catches for 64 yards with 2 TD's. Kendall Chakeris rounded out the scoring with 1 TD and 67 yards rushing.

Defensively, Wyatt Shogren has a big night with 9 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 sack and a huge blocked punt. Carson Rourk led the team in tackles with 15. He also had 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack and 1 pass breakup. Joe Pascutti had another great game with 9 tackles, 1 tackle for loss and 1 pass breakup. Colson Gunn continues his great play with 8 tackles and 1 pass breakup. Kendall Chakeris and Jamison Howard were big contributors with each recording 6 tackles and 2 sacks.

Varsity Volleyball is now 5-0 and our JV team is 4-0.  One of the things that we are focusing on this season is "controlling the controllable". We have become laser-focused on what we can control on our side of the court. 

"While this is certainly easier said than done, I have seen a visible difference so far this season. I am proud of these girls as there are so many factors outside of our control right now. They have done a great job staying focused on what they can control".  

PCA Volleyball has a tough home match this Thursday against 3A Ashley Hall. JV starts at 4:30 pm and Varsity starts at 5:30 pm. Let's GO EAGLES!!!
