Wilmington set the tone for their demise on Saturday on the opening kick-off. Terrelle Pryor
took the ball and made his way down the Jeannette sideline before being pushed out of bounds. The hit was late and forced Pryor to hurdle a bench and fly into a three-foot high snow drift. The rest of the day Pryor played with a chip on his shoulder which spelled bad news for the Greyhounds.
