Week 9 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon v. Notre Dame Green Pond

Saucon Valley (5-3) has lost their last two football games.  After winning four in a row, the Panthers hit the skids two weeks ago at Wilson where the Warriors (4-4) hit a game-winning field goal in the last few seconds of play.  Then last week, Saucon was again on the road at Northwestern Lehigh where they were thumped by the Tigers (7-1).  Things will not get any easier for the Panthers on Friday night when they welcome the Notre Dame Crusaders (6-2) to town.

Panther Play of the Week: Lugardo Gains On Sprint Draw
