Haven had another strong night last Friday rushing the ball for 271 yards and averaging almost 7 yards per rushing attempt. They held the Cougars to 210 yards, 68 in the air, but the strange statistic is that Springfield ran 63 plays to Haven’s 42 which says a lot about Haven’s defense. Add the pick 6 specialty play on the punt block and the 5 sacks and one interception and you begin to see that, while the Panther offense has speed and power, the Panther defense and specialty teams is winning games! Season stats show a +5 on turnovers (fumbles and interceptions) and an amazing punt return average of just under 11 yards per return. The kicking game is going well too as Emmet Young is 23 for 25 in extra points, a 50+ yard average on kickoffs (including 5 touch-backs out of 36 kickoffs) and his 17 punts have averaged almost 30 yards and have been fair caught twice and downed 9 times.
