‘Pretty scary’ is the only way to describe last Friday night’s 12-0 lead taken by a much improved Lower Merion Aces team. As the Panthers had experienced against Interboro the week previously they had good success moving the ball but then proceeded to lose possession due to fumbles at the worst possible moment. No doubt that the team’s mistakes cost Haven a victory against Interboro but they were able to regroup and stay on course as they hung on to beat the Aces last week 22-18.
Defense played extremely well holding the Aces to 0 yards on the ground. Hussein led rushing yards with 149. Ford had a classic goal-line interception and 11 yard return.
The Panthers will have to play better football this week against an improving Penncrest Lions team. They got bombed in their game opener against Sun Valley 54-13 but managed to put together a few passes in a sloppy, wet game against Harriton last week for a 14-0 win. The Lions are looking for good things from quarterback #10 Nick Benecke who has worked hard in the off-season. #8 Gee Antonelli does it all for the Lions so the Panthers will have to have him on their radar all night long. #4 Aiden Conmy and #1 Jay Brown are also key members of the offense and will have to be held in check.
