The Salisbury Falcons’ football season has come to an end. The 2-8 record comes as an extreme disappointment to the team and especially the leaving seniors. The Falcons ended the year on a 4 game losing streak losing to Northern Lehigh, Bangor, Palmerton, and Southern Lehigh. Their two wins came against Wilson (21-7 win) and Catasauqua (35-7 win). It was a tough season in which their opponents scored almost double the number of points that they did. The team was riddled with injuries and position changes throughout the season. Injuries included basically every position on offense and defense. This included starting quarterback and linebacker, Jacob Kamp, who could not even start as QB for his last game as a Falcon. These injuries, previous seniors leaving, and a need for position changes all contributed to their losing record.

4th and 5 from the Ohio State (OSU) 43 at Beaver Stadium with 1:22 left in the game. With OSU up 27-26, PSU ran what is being called the worst play call of the year. After a timeout by Penn State (PSU) they lineup for the play. That is when Ohio State calls a timeout, followed by another timeout by PSU. After all of these timeouts the best play call that PSU came up with was the option play that did not work all night. PSU QB, Trace McSorley took the snap and handed it off to PSU RB Miles Sanders was immediately hit and tackled. Giving the ball back to Ohio State and basically ending the game for Penn State with only a minute left and 1 timeout.

The Salisbury Falcons Varsity football team went to Notre Dame this past Friday to take on the 3-1, now 4-1, Crusaders. It was a rough night for the Falcons, playing with limited starting players due to a plethora of injuries that has riddled the Falcon starting lineup. The remaining healthy Falcon players were typically freshman and sophomores, leading to an inexperienced eleven.
