Panther Play of the Week: Mahaffey, The Best Option

The Saucon Valley Panthers couldn’t have asked for a better opponent with whom to end their two-game losing streak.  After falling to both Wilson and Northwestern Lehigh the previous two weeks, Saucon returned home on their Senior Night to play Colonial League East leader, the Notre Dame Crusaders.  The Panthers needed to bring their “A-game” in this contest and that they did.  It wasn’t a perfect night, but Saucon Valley, perhaps, played their best game of the season.

Week 9 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon v. Notre Dame Green Pond

Saucon Valley (5-3) has lost their last two football games.  After winning four in a row, the Panthers hit the skids two weeks ago at Wilson where the Warriors (4-4) hit a game-winning field goal in the last few seconds of play.  Then last week, Saucon was again on the road at Northwestern Lehigh where they were thumped by the Tigers (7-1).  Things will not get any easier for the Panthers on Friday night when they welcome the Notre Dame Crusaders (6-2) to town.
