It sure wasn’t pretty between the penalties, muffed punts and fumbles and Haven had their own interceptions and sacks and defense managed to keep the Tigers out of the end zone even after possessing the ball for 10 minutes in the first quarter. More importantly the boys in black and silver got the win and the shutout beating a previously undefeated Marple Newtown team, 10-0. The win moved the Panthers up to the #3 seed spot in the PIAA District 2, 5A playoff race. The top 16 teams go to the playoffs and the top 8 teams play at home for at least the first game!
The Springfield Cougars are coming into George L. King Field this Friday night and it will seem like a home game for both teams. The Springfield High School is under construction and their home field is being relocated so they are playing all their home games at George L. King. However, this is a Strath Haven home game.
The Cougars are 2-4, managing to beat Lower Merion and Radnor. They squeaked out a victory against Radnor (10-7) and crushed Lower Merion (35-0). Our only common opponents so far have been a loss to Ridley (22-6) and Haverford (34-7).
