Panthers End Great Season, 9-3

Bulldozer Bragalone and South head East to take on Old Forge


by John Vogt - November 17, 2014

The North Penn Mansfield Panthers traveled to South Williamsport this past Friday night to take on the Mountaineers for the District 4 Championship. But Dominick Bragalone and the Mountaineer defense proved to be too much as they brought the curtain down on one of the best seasons in Panther history. It was a tough loss, but the Panthers can certainly hold their heads high as they look back on a great season. Records were set and playoffs were attained. It’s been a dream year for a great bunch of guys capturing an NTL title and having a fantastic 9-3 season.

The Mountaineers, with 6 straight loosing seasons, stopped living in their past this year – going all the way to become District 4’s best class A team and claiming South Williamsport’s first district championship since 1997. They have now won 11 straight games. The Mountaineers will travel to Scranton this coming Friday to battle the Old Forge Blue Devils, who are the defending Eastern Region Champions. While Old Forge is favored, they may be in for a surprise if the Mounties’ offensive line can spring Mr. Bragalone. On the very first play from the line of scrimmage Dominick Bragalone stunned the Panthers this past Friday evening with a 68 yard touchdown run. Things continued to go SOUTH for the Panthers from there.

Late in the first quarter the Panthers struck back when Bo Burleigh hit Luke Kelly in the end zone. The first quarter would end with the Mountaineers leading the Panthers 15-6. But during the second quarter the wheels came off the train for the Panthers. Dominick Bragalone and the Mountaineers would shred the North Penn-Mansfield defense, racking up 26 unanswered points. Bragalone would end the game with 380 yards and 5 touchdowns.

The Panthers did not score again until the 4th quarter when Bo Burleigh found Bryce Zaparzynski in the end zone. But North Penn-Mansfield had no defensive answer to Dominick Bragalone, who at times dragged defenders down the field on his way to the goal line. Hats off to the Panthers defense who took a beating trying to bring this muscleman down. It was like trying to tackle a meat grinder!

Toward the end of the game, Bragalone would bulldoze through the Panthers one last time – rushing to the end zone from South Williamsport’s own 43 yard line and bringing the final score to Mountaineers 54, Panthers 14.

Panther’s head coach Tom Dickinson was disappointed in Friday night’s outcome, but had nothing but praise for an outstanding Panthers football team. Their 9 and 3 season is one for the record books. The team put together one of the most successful years in Panther history, reaching the district championship game for the first time.

Bo Burleigh ended with 30 touchdown passes for the season and Bryce Zaparzynski rushed for over 1,000 yards, two years in a row. (Keep eating those wings, Bryce!) The Panthers set a number of new records and showed outstanding determination and character throughout the year. On behalf of all of us here at Wellsboro Home Page, congratulations to the North Penn-Mansfield Panthers on their outstanding season!
