Bridgewater College coasts past Apprentice School, 34-14


bridgewater logoThe Bridgewater College football team rode a first half shutout to a comfortable 34-14 win, Saturday night vs. The Apprentice School at Jopson Field.

Sophomore Jason Monroe intercepted two deflected passes and junior Davey Hardesty racked up 13 tackles for the victors. Tyler Miller had one tackle for loss and a forced fumble, and John Piette added a sack.

Quarterback Matthew Pisarcik had his best game of the season so far, completing 9-of-13 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown. Fellow senior Kevin Barr caught three balls for 90 yards and a score.

Bridgewater opened the game up in the second quarter, scoring twice to go ahead 17-0 at the break.

Pisarcik found Will Hill-Pensamiento for 22 yards on 3rd-and-17 late in the first quarter, setting up Nick Ollie’s eight-yard scoring cut to the outside early in the second.

Pisarcik soon hit Barr, wide open in the end zone, for a 17-yard score that made it 17-0 in favor of the home side. In between, Apprentice had a promising drive derailed when Quinton Phillips’ 25-yard catch was negated due to a flag.

Bridgewater improves to 2-1 and will have a bye week before beginning ODAC play on October 3 at rival Shenandoah. Apprentice falls to 0-3 on the year.
