High winds, chilly air, and a light rain that flew parallel to the George L. King Field at Strath Haven Middle School proved to be a tough test for the pass-happy Haverford High offense. Or so one would have thought.
Quarterback Jack Donaghy continued his stellar season with four first-half touchdown passes—two each to Matt Corbett and Bobby McClure—as the Fords handled the Panthers 47-20 in a Central League contest that was postponed from Friday.
Asked if the air attack surprised him in the uncooperative weather, Donaghy responded, “Yes and no. Yes, because of the conditions. No, because (head coach Joe Gallagher) calls our plays.”
Gallagher’s gamble paid off as his offense looked good in what could have been a tough night. The Donaghy-led attack ran on all cylinders, producing scoring drives on seven of Haverford’s first eight possessions.
