After Buc-Falcon Tie, Blair & Peddie Share Cup!
Suzy Logan

Go Bucs...and Falcons! As the sun set over Blairstown on November 3, athletes and spectators celebrated a tie between the Blair Bucs and Peddie Falcons in the 2018 contest for the Kelley-Potter Cup, which the two schools will share for the next year until they face one another again in 2019 in Hightstown.

This year, six Blair teams prevailed in their match-ups against Peddie and one team tied, making the 2018 competition a nail-biter right up to the conclusion of the varsity soccer game, which was followed by the traditional Cup ceremony on the 50-yard line of the football field. The final score for the day was 6-6-1, one of the few ties in the 115-year history of the Blair-Peddie rivalry.

In accepting the shared cup alongside Peddie’s Head of School Peter Quinn, Chris Fortunato thanked the Falcons for traveling to Blairstown and commended all of the athletes for strong performances throughout the day.

The Peddie Day scoreboard is posted below; look for team-by-team recaps on Blair’s athletics page. To view more photos from the day, visit Blair's Photoshelter account.
