Week 11 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon @ Allentown Central Catholic

The post-season begins on Friday night for the #5 seeded Saucon Valley Panthers (6-4) as they travel to J. Birney Crum Stadium to mix it up with the #4  Allentown Central Catholic Vikings (6-4) in the PIAA District XI AAAA playoffs.  The Panthers limp into the postseason being down a handful of two-way starters and face a Viking team that seemed to have gotten better and better as the season rolled along.  Central defeated Bethlehem Catholic last week 31-24 and fell just short with their comeback effort against powerhouse Freedom 34-31.  A win will keep the season alive for Saucon Valley while a loss brings about the end to their 2019 season.

Week 10 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon @ Palisades

With last week’s big victory over visiting Notre Dame, Saucon Valley (6-3) is back on the winning track.  The Panthers snapped a two-game skid and now set their eyes on the District XI 4A playoffs.  With a win on Friday night against the Palisades Pirates (2-7), the Panthers will not only secure a Colonial League East title, but they also have a chance to secure home-field advantage in the opening round of the District XI playoffs. Things won’t be easy on Friday night for the Panthers.

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.

Week 8 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon @ Northwestern

After last weekend’s setback, Saucon Valley (5-2) will continue their 2019 journey with a road trip to Northwestern Lehigh (6-1). Last week, the Panthers fell in the last seconds to the Wilson Warriors during a Saturday afternoon clash.  This week, Saucon Valley will have the herculean task of stopping the Northwestern Lehigh Tigers on Friday night.

Week 7 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon @ Wilson

Saucon Valley will hit the road this weekend for a rare Saturday afternoon, Colonial League clash. The Panthers (5-1), will travel to battle the surging Wilson Warriors (3-3).  After last week’s homecoming nailbiter against Bangor, Saucon is expecting a four-quarter war against the Warriors as part of Wilson’s homecoming festivities.

Week 3 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon @ Palmerton

Week #3 of Saucon Valley high school’s football season will continue tonight as the Panthers load the bus for their first away game of the 2019 season and travel to compete against the Palmerton Blue Bombers.  After falling to Southern Lehigh on opening night, Saucon Valley (1-1) bounced back to defeat Pen Argyl last week 24-7.  On Week 1, the Bombers (1-1) flew into Palisades and flattened the Pirates 47-6 before crashing against Southern Lehigh 27-12 during Week 2.  Last year, Saucon Valley hosted the Bombers and came out on top 34-26 in a very physical affair. This contest is shaping up to be another bruising battle.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Week 2 Panther Pregame Football Focus: Saucon v. Pen Argyl

Are you ready for some more football, Saucon Valley?  The Panthers will play at home again on Friday night against the Pen Argyl Green Knights.  Saucon Valley soundly defeated Pen Argyl last season 41-3.  Last week, Saucon Valley got off to a rough start and fell hard against Southern Lehigh.  Hopefully, this week, the Panthers (0-1) will get back on track against the Knights (0-1).  The Green Knights lost to the Salisbury Falcons last week 25-16. This will be a bruising battle between two programs looking to get a tally in the win column.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
