Panther Play of the Week: Kyra Toe-Taps for 6 (Brought to You by Hellertown Bakery)

It was a tough loss on Homecoming night for the Saucon Valley Panthers.  Saucon needed to play a near-perfect game against the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers, but they just couldn’t get it done.  Nonetheless, the Panthers did make a bunch of awesome plays worthy of any highlight reel.  Here, we share a touchdown pass from Dante Mahaffey (#12) to Justin Kyra (#22).  It was a beautiful throw with a spectacular catch in the back of the Panther end zone.

One week after a mercy-rule victory over the winless Warriors of Wilson, Saucon Valley suffered a beatdown of their own at the hands of the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers.  The Panthers knew coming into this 2018 Homecoming matchup against Northwestern that they would have to play a near perfect game.  However, a continuous assortment of penalties, dropped balls and missed assignments prevented the Panthers from stepping up to overtake the Tigers.

Panther Pregame Football Focus Homecoming Edition: Saucon v. Northwestern Lehigh (Brought to You by Vassi’s Drive-In)

The Saucon Valley Panthers (7-0) are on a roll.  After last week’s win over the Wilson Warriors, Saucon now turns their attention to the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers (5-2).  The Panthers defeated Northwestern 49-21 last year. But, this year’s Tigers are much bigger game.  Northwestern Lehigh suffered a 35-34 loss to Palisades during week three and were defeated 45-21 by the much improved Spartans of Southern Lehigh last week.  Friday night is the Panthers’ 2018 Homecoming and the game will be a signature win for either program.  It doesn’t get much better than this!
