The Bellwood Antis football team is coming off a win last Friday against Glendale and is looking to keep the ball rolling this Friday as they travel to Juniata Valley to take on the Hornets.

Junior Tackle Evan Pellegrine is feeling good going into the game on Friday.

“I feel good and ready for Friday night’s game. I think it will be a very good game.”

Pellegrine has been doing well on Friday nights  with nine tackles and nine tackles for loss.

The Hornets are 1-1 and coming off a 38-20 win over Mount Union. JV is led by quarterback Quinn Zinobile, who leads the team in both passing and rushing. In the Hornets’  win over Mount Union last week, Quinn passed for 151 yards and rushed for 105 yards.

“If we can contain Zinoblie and limit his running and impact on the game as a whole, I feel very good about our chances of winning.”

B-A Coach Nick Lovrich said the Hornets have many strong skill players to challenge the Devils.

“It will be a touch match up,” he said. “We need to be fundamentally sound and not make mistakes on Friday night.”

B-A quarterback Shawn Wolfe was injured last Friday but should be ready for Juniata Valley. Running back Troy Walker was also injured and will not play.

“We have a lot of players on the team, so we have some depth,” said Coach Lovrich. “Our guys need to be ready to step in when called upon.”

Wolfe has been hot in the passing  game, throwing for almost 200 yards in over a span of two games.

Senior split end Andrew Hale has been coming up huge for B-A’s receiving corps. Hale has 3 receptions for 116 yards over just two games and has a the lone receiving touchdown.

Senior Alex Frederick and Junior John Kost have combined for over 150 rushing yards, with each having rushing touchdowns.
