*Radnor Play-of-the-Game now available*
By Havenfootball.net Staff
When one reviews the game against Radnor last week you statistically see two very evenly matched teams. A pick six was the only regulation time touchdown for the Panthers while Radnor took until late in the fourth quarter to get their six points. Time of possession was almost even as was total offense but Haven had 2+ in turnovers including that one interception for a touchdown and the other fumble recovery stopped the Red Raiders as they closed in on a score. Too bad there were so few fans left to witness the final plays of the double overtime but you can see them in our Play-of-the-Game feature if you missed them.
The Panthers travel over to Newtown Square to take on the 9-1 Marple Newtown Tigers this Friday night. Both teams appear to have made the 16 team playoff roster. Haven is sitting at #13 which would force a playoff game against the third or fourth seed team (which could be the Tigers) but a win could push them up to a 9 or 10 seed which would make their opponent more of an even match.

Late in a game that would eventually go overtime, the rain and wind left Strath Haven looking for somebody, anybody to make a play and avoid allowing a game to slip through its fingers.
The Panthers had controlled play in the first half Friday night, but allowed a rejuvenated and aggressive Radnor team to claw its way back. That Panther plea was answered by a host of players, who joined to pull out a 22-14 win in overtime over the Red Raiders.
Strath Haven scored on its first play in the OT when quarterback Evan Atsaves hit senior tight end Jalen Thompson for a touchdown.
“It felt amazing to get in and catch my first pass of the game and it was for a touchdown,” said Thompson. “We’ve been working on that play in practice and with me never really being put in those situations on offense, it felt great to actually make that miracle happen.”
