Friday night against Pen Argyl, the Saucon Valley Panthers were able to secure their first victory of the 2019 season and the first career win for head-coach, Brad Trembler. But, all the good news from Friday night got started with the Panther defense.
In a game that lacked offense early, Saucon Valley had Pen Argyl backed-up deep in their own territory. On 3rd & 18 Saucon Valley’s Ramel Moore (#2) and Josh Torres (#22) came off the edge and directly into the face of the Pen Argyl quarterback as he tried to roll to his right and get off a pass. Trying to escape the Panther pressure, the Green Knight tried to reverse his field and escape. However, Aiden Renninger (#5) came unblocked from the backside. Renninger was able to briefly get hold of the Pen Argyl quarterback forcing him to throw the football away and avoid a sack. The play ended up being penalized for “intentional grounding” from the end zone and the Panthers were awarded the first two points of the game.
