Though the first 59 minutes of Saturday’s battle for the “Peace Pipe” were long on incompletions and short on drama, the final 60 seconds reminded the hundreds of huddled Pomona-Pitzer fans why people love college football. No, nobody truly thought that the Sagehens could overcome a ten-point deficit with 19
Last Saturday night, the Sagehens honored James Lambert PO ’12, Tim Stapenhorst PZ ’12, Kareem Smedley PO ’12, Zach Tannous PZ ’12, and Andre Shepley PO ’12 prior to the start of their final home game. The ceremony highlighted a major issue for the then 0-7 Sagehens. Though its five
After Saturday’s loss to the Whittier Poets, Pomona-Pitzer football fans left the stadium with what has become the season’s unofficial mantra ringing in their heads: “The game sure was a lot closer than the score.” If the now 0-7 Sagehens can take solace in anything, it’s that they managed to
In a game that was much closer than the final score indicates, the Whittier Poets surged past Pomona-Pitzer 58-27. Running back Luke Sweeney PO ’13 had a nice bounce-back performance with 246 yards, ensuring that he’ll be at the top of the NCAA rushing leaderboard for another week, while Whittier

Pomona-Pitzer quarterback Luke Ferguson PO ’13 likely didn’t imagine that his career highs in completions, yards, and attempts would come in a game that his P-P Sagehens lost by 41 points. The same goes for wide receiver Ryan Randle PO ’14, who had the second-most productive game of his young
A week after becoming the NCAA’s leading rusher across all divisions, junior running back Luke Sweeney PO ’13 was sidelined as the Redlands Bulldogs beat the Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens 61-20. Without their injured star, the Sagehens managed only 35 yards on the ground—a far cry from Sweeney’s average of 183 yards
For the third time in their young season, the Sagehens were playing with a lead. Pomona-Pitzer had been up 7-0 and 13-7 against Lewis & Clark the previous week, but both scores were wiped away by touchdowns on the Pioneers’ ensuing drives—the Sagehens simply couldn’t hold on to a lead.
After yet another fourth-down conversion late in Saturday’s Pomona-Pitzer football game, Sagehen fans were left with one question weighing heavily on their collective minds: does either team even have a punter? This question wouldn’t be answered until there were eight minutes left in the third, when Ben Feldman PO ’15
