This past weekend only the 110’s and 130’s were left in action in the semifinal round of the Colonial League Youth Football playoffs. The 110s played Catasauqua at Catasauqua while the 130’s made the trip to Palmerton to take on Northwestern Gold.
This season the Saucon Valley youth coaches have, once again, recognized the efforts of their boys and girls as they participate in the football and cheerleading experience. Saucon Source is proud to have again partnered with the coaches to share the kids’ successes this season with you!
Football typically recognizes a player or players every week with a “Panther Pride” recognition award. The cheer coaches have chosen deserving girls and identified 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 recognition is 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.
The Little Panther 110’s were deadlocked 0-0 with the Roughies until very late in the 3rd Quarter. Catty got on the scoreboard right at the end of the Third and tacked a couple more on in the Fourth. All said and done the Roughies moved on with a 19-0 victory.
PLAYOFF PANTHER PRIDE AWARD: The WHOLE Team!
The Panther 130’s struck first and held the lead 13-12 late in the Third Quarter against the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers. The Tigers answered with a touchdown but missed their two-point conversion to go up 18-13. A crunch-time Saucon Valley drive made it down to the Tiger 22-yardline but lost its steam. The Panthers turned it over on downs. Saucon Valley made their last stand and forced the Tigers into a 4th & 2 situation in their own territory. However, the Tigers were able to convert, popping a long run that ultimately led to the last points of the game with under two minutes left to play. The final score was a 24-13 heartbreaker for the Panthers.
PLAYOFF PANTHER PRIDE AWARD: The ENTIRE Team!
Congrats to all the Saucon Valley Youth Players and Cheerleaders. It was a great season. The Source is with you!
