Girardi Wins 250th in Overtime Thriller

WILLIAMSPORT - Lycoming College head football coach Frank Girardi earned the 250th victory of his illustrious career as the Warriors capped the 2005 season with a 17-10 overtime victory over longtime rival Susquehanna University on Saturday afternoon.

Quarterback Glenn Smith (Watsontown, Pa./Warrior Run) scored on an 11-yard scamper during Lycoming's overtime possession to give the Warriors the lead. The defense, stout all game, made Smith's seventh touchdown run of the season stand up as they forced the Warriors on downs to secure the victory.

The triumph concluded an exciting campaign in which the Warriors dug out of a 1-4 hole to finish with a 6-4 mark and a five-game winning streak that will carry over until next season.
