Panthers Run Away From Falcons

On a special Thursday night edition of Colonial League football, the Saucon Valley Panthers played host to the visiting Salisbury Falcons.  Both teams entered the contest with 2-1 records and both teams were looking to remain near the top of the league standings.  Only Southern Lehigh is left unbeaten in the league and surely both the Falcons and Panthers wanted to try and keep pace.

Panthers Pound Past Palmerton

On Friday night, the Saucon Valley Panthers hit the road for a Colonial League matchup with the Palmerton Blue Bombers.   Both teams entered the contest with 1-1 records and, for sure, both teams were looking to climb the standings by securing their second win.  The Panthers rebounded with a win against Pen Argyl after a crushing loss to Southern Lehigh.  Palmerton won against Palisades opening night and fell to Southern Lehigh last week. This Friday night in September was a great night for football.

Panthers Survive Knight Time

The Saucon Valley Panthers defended their home turf against the Pen Argyl Green Knights in a Friday night football tilt.  Both the Panthers and the Knights took the field winless.  Last week, Saucon fell to the Southern Lehigh Spartans while Pen Argyl came up short to the Salisbury Falcons.  It was an absolute beautiful night for football and a beautiful night for one of these teams to pick up their first win of the 2019 season.

The Saucon Valley footballers were riding high after last week’s 42-21 victory over the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers in the District XI semifinal.  The Panthers (10-3) avenged their previous loss to the Tigers and, for the fifth consecutive season, advanced to the District XI championship game.  But, after an excellent first quarter against the Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawks (10-3) in the 2018 District XI title game, the Panther’s mighty wave of success crashed down into the ground.

Not many people outside the Saucon Valley area had much faith that the Panthers could defeat the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers this past Saturday night.  Afterall, the Tigers crashed Saucon’s homecoming festivities and thumped the Panthers 49-28 back on October 12th.  But, with an opportunity to get a little revenge and the prospect of advancing to the 2018 District XI championship, Saucon Valley focused their efforts and roared their way past the Tigers in dominant fashion.  The Panthers (10-2) defeated the Tigers (9-3) 42-21 and will now advance to the District XI final for the fifth consecutive season.

After last week’s last second, heart-breaking loss to Notre Dame, the Saucon Valley Panthers found themselves in a bit of a tailspin losing back to back games. Coming into this Colonial league finale against the powerful Palisades Pirates (7-3), it didn’t seem as if things would get any easier for the Panthers.  With the “Bicentennial Trophy” and bragging rights in this rivalry game on the line, the Panthers had more than enough work cut out for them as the Pirates have a stout defense and were averaging 45 points per game.

After last week’s homecoming beatdown by the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers giving Saucon Valley their first loss of the season, the Panthers found themselves in the virtual Colonial League title game against the Notre Dame on Friday night.  Even with one week remaining on the regular-season schedule, the result of the Panther v. Crusader matchup would essentially determine the 2018 Colonial League champions.

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.
