North Penn-Mansfield Senior Wide Receiver Sammy Lawrence caught three touchdown passes but it wasn’t enough as the North Penn-Mansfield Panthers suffered a 49-21 loss to West Perry in their final home game of the year on Friday, October 14.
The Panthers received the game’s opening kickoff and Gabe Bellows returned the ball all the way down near the Mustang 20. On 3rd down, Panther QB Karson Dominick hit Lawrence for the pair’s first touchdown of the evening, giving the Panthers an early 7-0 lead.
The Mustangs answered back on their first drive, tying the game at 7-all.
After a couple of turnovers by both teams, the Panthers struck again in the first quarter as Dominick hit Lawrence for the second time, from 9 yards out, putting the Panthers back in front, 14-7.
Again the Mustangs answered. This time they went to the air and scored on a 30-yard strike to tie the game back up.
West Perry dominated the 2nd and 3rd quarters to put the game in their control. They scored twice in the 2nd quarter to lead 28-14 at the half, then extended their lead to 49-14 by the end of the third quarter.
North Penn-Mansfield’s final touchdown came with 5:23 remaining in the game as Lawrence caught his third TD of the evening, this one from Cooper Shaw, to make the score 49-21.
The loss drops the Panthers to 1-7 overall. They will be back on the field next Friday at Wyalusing.
