Bethlehem Catholic Continue Hot Start With Shutout Win


Staff Writer

For the second straight week, the Bethlehem Catholic Defense arose to the challenge. After stymieing the Zephyrs of Whitehall 35-7 in their first game of the season, the Golden Hawk defense stood tall again as they did not allow the Pocono Mountain West Panthers in the end zone in a 21-0 victory last Saturday afternoon.

The offense sputtered for much of the game, in a contest that the Hawks were heavily favored in. The Hawks held a slim 6-0 lead at halftime. Neither team could create any offense in the third quarter and the score remained at 6-0 heading into the final twelve minutes.

Panther quarterback Ian McHugh was harassed all game by the penetrating Hawks’ front seven, facing an all-out rush threw an errant pass that Antonio Ramos-Dobins picked off at the Panther’s 31 yard line and weaved his way into the end zone to make it 14-0 after the two-point conversion.

Running back Rahmel Terry capped off the scoring with a one yard TD with just under four minutes left on a drive that took only five plays covering 50 yards.

Bethlehem Catholic (2-0) will face their stiffest test this Friday as they play the unbeaten Nazareth Blue Eagles, who are coming off a huge 28-10 win over Parkland.
