Proctor Academy 44, Pingree 12: The Highlanders dropped their first game of the season against a formidable opponent. Senior captain Jerome Cappadona ran in for a score and threw the other one to Robert VanTuyl .
Cappadona threw for 246 yards and his leading receiver, Salvatore Fazio had six catches for 105 yards. VanTuyl recorded 72 yards on three catches, but it wasn’t enough to prevail.
”It was a tough game for us overall,” said head coach Chris Powers. “We were plagued by a bunch of turnovers, but it was a tight game for a long time.
