Germantown Academy 7, Hill School 6

By Jeff Stover

POTTSTOWN  -- The defense produced a consistently intense and effective effort.
The offense rose to the occasion — albeit late — by providing the equalizer to Germantown Academy’s early score, and the special teams even had their moments of glory.
But the final numbers-crunching couldn’t give The Hill School a victory in its season opener Saturday. Instead, the Blues came away from a hot afternoon on their home field with a 7-6 loss to their non-league guests.
A misplay on a two-point conversion attempt, with 3:28 left in the game and the Hill fresh from reducing the deficit to one, proved the difference. It negated what had been a yeoman performance across the board, the locals seeing one last possession get only as far as their 39-yard line before being stopped on downs with little more than a minute left.
