Indians Capitalize on Costly Fumbles Penn Hills 31, Upper St. Clair 13


Meyer, Craig, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


Sitting in a metal folding chair with his arms crossed in the corner of his team's locker room Friday night, there was little that Jim Render could take away from what had just transpired on the field.

He was proud of his players, but even for an Upper St. Clair team that returned one starter from last season, there was little to be gained in a 31-13 loss to Penn Hills to open the season.

"You don't learn anything from getting beat," Render said matter- of-factly.

The loss was defined by the Panthers' three fumbles in a 61/2- minute span in the second quarter. Those three turnovers resulted in 17 points for the Indians (1-0).

For a program that hasn't won more than five games in a season since 2008, the victory provided hope.

"It's a huge win to open up with," Penn Hills coach John Peterman said. "We're expecting more out of this season, so we'll go back tomorrow and get ready for [Canon-McMillan]."

The Panthers (0-1) held a 7-0 lead about halfway through the second quarter, but soon enough, everything began to unravel.

While being tackled, receiver Andrew Bartusiak fumbled the ball, which was scooped up by the Indians' Christian Randall-Posey, who ran it 52 yards the other way to even the score.

On the following drive, as Panthers quarterback Dan Trocano was trying to evade two charging Penn Hills linemen, he was hit while attempting a pass. …
