Roundup: Princeton football ends losing streak

NT Sports Staff

The Princeton football team exploded for four touchdowns in the second quarter to propel the Tigers to a 35-7 victory over Morrison on Saturday in Princeton.

The victory snapped a 20-game losing streak for the Tigers, whose last victory was a 33-28 win over Hall on Oct. 7, 2011. It was the longest losing streak in program history.

Junior quarterback Jake Reinhardt scored the first touchdown of the game on a 15-yard run. He later tossed a 25-yard TD pass to Levi Bates with 48 seconds left in the first half.

Also in the second quarter, Kai Tomaszewski ran for a 25-yard score and Jacob Smith ran for a 4-yard TD.

Smith finished with 108 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 28 carries.

Pittsfield 28, River Valley 6

It was a rough start to the season for the Falcons as the game was called with 4:59 left in the third quarter because River Valley did not have enough healthy players to continue.

River Valley led after the first quarter thanks to a 19-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Henderson to Christian Hoffman with 3:27 left.

Pittsfield scored three touchdowns — including two on fumble returns — in the second quarter before adding a fourth score in the third quarter.

Sam Poignant had 60 rushing yards on 12 carries for RV, while Henderson had 40 total yards — 22 passing, 15 rushing and 3 receiving.
