Pelham Pythons Football '09

Mistakes cost Pelham

The two-time defending Div. V State Champion Pelham Pythons fell in the state semi-finals 32-18 to the Bishop Brady Giants. The dream of winning its third state championships in a row was erased by the Giants who used a nightmare of a first half for Pelham to its own advantage, capitolizing on almost all of Pelhams turnovers and turning them into points.

Goal line stand earns Pythons big victory

PELHAM — It was almost poetic justice that the deciding factor of a thrilling overtime game was a positive result from a mistake.

On a roller-coaster Friday evening so full of highs and lows that even Six Flags’ best rides couldn’t match them, Pelham’s defense faced a fourth down-and-goal in a second overtime period. St. Thomas was perched 18 inches from the end zone with its playoff hopes on the line and handed off the ball to senior Zach Duffey up the middle behind a sizeable line.

Pythons bow out

PELHAM N.H. — You can't win if you can't score, and Pelham learned that the hard way in the second half in a 17-14 heartbreaking loss to Bow. 

The Python offense ran just 12 plays in the second half netting only 31 yards compared to Bow's relentless running attack which kept the clock moving and Pelham's defense on the field. Bow ran 36 plays for 158 yards and controlled the ball for over 19 minutes of the 24 minute second half.
