Saturday’s varsity football showdown between the Saucon Valley Panthers and the Bangor Area Slaters was literally months in the making, due to several postponements related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The game was also off-limits to spectators because of Pennsylvania’s limits on outdoor gatherings, which currently cannot exceed 250 people. However, hundreds of parents and fans were able to watch the action live on YouTube, thanks to a livestreaming partnership between Saucon Athletics and Saucon Source. The partnership is made possible thanks to generous support by several local businesses and organizations, including:
- Saucon Valley Football Club – GOLD SPONSOR
- McDonald’s of Hellertown – SILVER SPONSOR
- Superior Auto of Hellertown – BRONZE SPONSOR
Please support our sponsors, who have demonstrated their support for high school sports in our community. For information about athletic coverage sponsorships, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or Robert.Frey@svpanthers.org.
If you missed Saturday’s game or want to watch it again, you can do that on YouTube, where the recording has been uploaded.
