Sometimes in sports it’s a matter of feast or famine and the Panthers came off a tough loss against a good Marple Newtown squad and then took their vengeance out on a young, rebuilding Harriton Rams team this week.
Four Panthers had runs over 50 yards (Jaris Adams – 75, Christian Mazur – 72, Greg Belville – 56, Nate Harrington – 55) while Haven gained 410 rushing yards and 71 yards on two passes. It was a dominating performance with Adams scoring twice on offense and a pick-6 on defense. Eight Panthers carried the ball and the average gain per rush was an astounding 19.5 yards.
As we noted, Harriton is rebuilding and has a very young team but they were game for the entire 48 minutes and managed to put together a drive that scored towards the end of the game.
The Springfield Cougars will be coming in with the same 2-1 record as Haven. The Cougars lost a close game against Radnor last week, 13-10, but easily defeated Penncrest (42-20) and Harriton (47-0) in the previous weeks.
