On Sunday it was a partial pack of Panthers that made the trip to Williams Township. It was only the Flags and 130’s that made the trip to do battle with the Rams. The other programs had a bye week. It was Week 7 of the Colonial League Youth Football League.
This season the Saucon Valley youth coaches are, once again, recognizing the efforts of their boys and girls as they participate in the football and cheerleading experience. Saucon Source is proud to be partnering with the coaches to share the kids’ successes this season with you!
Football recognizes a player, or players, every week with a “Panther Pride” award. The cheer coaches choose deserving girls and identify them with a “Panther Spirit” award.
The recognition of the kids can relate to anything from effort or enthusiasm to the acknowledgement of a great performance. Maybe the award will be for being a good teammate or volunteering their time. It can be for any number of positive things!
The awards are meant to be a fun and special way for the coaches to show their appreciation for the hard work and dedication the boys and girls invest in the football and cheer programs.
Here we go with this week’s awards!
Game Summary: The Flag team kept up the intensity again against the Williams Township Rams. The Panther Pride players this week are Taylor Rohn, Zach Henn, Luke Peters and Trevor Weidner. Taylor ran wild again and reached the endzone twice. When he was’t running the ball he was blocking downfield for the other running backs. Zach was a menace all day on defense and could not be blocked. Luke stepped up and played many different positions on offense and defense and was able to punch in the final touchdown of the game. Trevor also contributed on offense and defense. He had a couple of hard runs up the middle. Overall this was an all out team effort with everyone contributing!
Keep up the great work, Flags!

Game Summary: The Panther 130’s stumbled this week against the undefeated Rams of Williams Township. As hard as the Panthers tried, they just could find a sustained rhythm. Josh Torres was able to get a couple of nice, hard runs and a few receptions out of the backfield. However, Torres and the Panthers were held to a single touchdown on offense. Defensively, the Panthers were kept off balance by the Rams rushing and passing attacks. Saucon 130’s dropped to a 6-1 record and their dream of an undefeated season came to an end. However, the hopes of the 2017 Colonial League championship are still alive!
