Quakers and Methodist make good soup:Guilford over Greensboro College

I was in the Soup Bowl at Jamieson Stadium last night and all it set me back was three cans of Campbell. Two clam chowders and a chicken noodle. The Souper Bowl game between the Quakers of Guilford College and the Methodist of Greensboro College was a huge success. Over 4,462 fans attended the game and somewhere in the neighborhood of 8,500 cans of food were collected for the hungry.

I have been a major tomato soup fan for many, many years and I wasn’t about to give that away but for all intents and purposes this is really a worthy cause.

Guilford was the victor coming out on top 41-35 over the other GC, Greensboro College, and Josh Vogelbach of Guilford was his usual self, going 48-79 for 422 yards and 5 TD’s. Joe Joyner continues to impress as a Quaker receiver and for the Pride of Greensboro College, I liked what I saw from runningback/return-man Torrey Lowe and receiver Tim Bagamary.

Lowe caught two touchdown passes, ran for a score from the backfield, and took a kickoff back 79 yards for a score. Mr. #9, Bagamary, caught some real mean passes and scored on a catch from 32 yards out to make it a 41-35 ballgame with 5:38 left to play. Bagamary has shoulder-length red hair so you can’t miss him. Vogelbach and the Guilford offense just ran out the clock with RB Michael Cooper carrying much of the load with some key first downs to close it out.

Guilford wins it 41-35 in a fun game for a great cause, with all the canned goods collected going to the needy.

    I just wanted to point out the Greensboro College’s mascot is not a Methodist…it is the Pride (a pack of lions).

    I think Andy was trying to be funny. I am pretty sure he knows they are the Pride.

    This is not about mascots. Guilford is a Quaker school and Greensboro College is affiliated with the Methodist church. Two religions getting together to promote the soup-drive for the hungry. This was a combined effort by these two fine institutions and was much more than a football game although the game itself was worth way more than two cans of soup.
