Panthers Fall to Eagles, 50-7
The North Penn-Mansfield Panthers made the long trek down Interstate 80 to face off against Bald Eagle Area in non-league football action on Friday, September 10, and came home on the losing end in a 50-7 game.
The Eagles took a quick lead just over three minutes in a Eagles’ QB Carson Nagle found Cameron Watkins for a 67-yard touchdown. From there the flood gates opened as Bald Eagle scored 43 more unanswered points.
With 9:23 showing on the 2nd quarter clock Nagle and Watkins connected again, this time from 18 yards out, for the game’s second score. Not even four minutes later the Eagles found the end zone again, this time they recovered a bad punt snap at the Panther one-yard line, where Garrett Burns plunged in from a yard out. Burns found the end zone again just over two minutes later, with 3:39 left before halftime, on a 9-yard run.
The Eagles’ last touchdown of the first half was on a Owen Irvin 52-yard punt return to lead 36-0.
Bald Eagle returned the second half kickoff 80 yards for Irvin’s second touchdown of the evening, followed by Burns’ third touchdown of the evening, a 31-yard sprint, to make it 50-0 midway through the third quarter.
North Penn-Mansfield found the end zone with 5:30 remaining as Kohen Lehman raced 55 yards, and broke five tackles along the way, to paydirt to bring the final score to 50-7.
Panther Quarterback Karson Dominick finished 11-of-17 through the air for 63 yards. Cameron Fabian caught 10 passes for 62 yards. Lehman carried the ball twice for 55 yards.
The loss drops the Panthers to 1-2 (1-1 NTL Large School Division). The team is back on the road Friday night as they resume NTL play at Alparon Park against Troy (2-1, 1-0 NTL Large School Division).
