The Panther offensive machine came alive this past Friday night scoring 27 points, rushing for 231 yards and passing for 78. The pass game included a very rare quick hit over the middle from QB# 7 Jake Fisher to #80 Dan Reeves for 11 yards. It was a sign of things to come………we hope. The Haven defense was on a roll, holding the Rams to only 53 yard rushing and 33 passing. It was an impressive performance and was just what the doctor ordered to get Haven some confidence going into a very tough schedule.
This week the Panthers return to Harriton High School to take on the Lower Merion Aces (1-1). After losing 30-19 against Chichester two weeks ago they crushed Springfield (Montco) last week, 46-12. The Aces scored on each of their first four possessions and held the Spartans to just 68 yards on offense. The Aces are led by quarterback #11 Marek D’Alonzo who can pass effectively. He’ll look for #3 Jaden Helton and #2 Ian Goodman as his primary recievers. Carrying the Aces on the ground will be #5 Deion Davis and #25 Elijah Smith. The Aces have a lot of strength in their skill positions and last week their front line found the formula for creating holes and giving their running backs some room to work. Lower Merion has played two good games scoring 65 combined points and last week their defense came alive.
