FFC & ECAC Honors for Three Panthers

September 28th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three Plymouth State College football standouts that were key players in the Panthers’ 20-17 victory over Norwich last Saturday at Currier Memorial Field have been recognized for their strong individual performances.

Sophomore running back Jeff Parker (Norwich, NY), junior defensive back John McLaughlin (East Bridgewater, MA), and junior punt returner/wide receiver Brent Bardellini (Milford, MA) were all named to the Freedom Football Conference Weekly Honor Roll. Parker and McLaughlin were also named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference New England Weekly Honor Roll.

PSC, #2 in the ECAC Division III New England football poll, is now 3-0 overall as a result to the 20-17 win over Norwich last Saturday. PSC is now 1-0 in the FFC, with its next three conference games against Western Connecticut, Kings Point, and Springfield on the road. PSC will start its road trip this Saturday (Oct. 3) at Western Connecticut (2-1, 0-0 FFC) at 1:00 p.m.

Parker started the scoring early for PSC with a two-yard run for a touchdown in the first quarter of Saturday’s game. Parker scored the first points of the game, but more importantly the final points of the game. Parker scampered for his second touchdown with a one-yard run with 5:33 to play in the game. Parker finished the day with 112 yards on 29 carries, and 36 yards on three receptions.

McLaughlin rattled the passing attack of Norwich with two interceptions, two tackles, and a pass break up on the day. Norwich was trailing 20-17 with under two minutes to play, but had the ball in PSC territory, when quarterback Eric Lewandoski got his pass intercepted by McLaughlin, his second of the game, to secure the win.

Bardellini finished his afternoon with 152 all-purpose yards, and a successful carry for a first down on a fake punt for the second consecutive game. PSC’s game-tying touchdown at 14-14 was set up on Bardellini’s 41-yard punt return that brought PSC deep into Norwich territory.

Parker has rushed for over 100 yards in two straight games, although he has fumbled three times. He leads PSC with four touchdowns and 257 yards rushing in three games, and he is second on the team with seven receptions on 55 yards.
