The Panthers drew first blood last week against the Marple Newtown Tigers when they scored on their first possession with a dramatic 4 play, 74 yard drive. The Tigers came right back and tied the game and then slowly, methodically just kept the pressure on and kept adding points holding the Panthers to just one other score but nailing the door shut with a 16 point fourth quarter. The Panthers showed a valiant effort.
The Upper Dublin Cardinals come into the playoff game seeded #4 with an 8-1 record and have pretty well overwhelmed the teams they played. Their one loss was to Plymouth-Whitemarsh in the first week of October in a close 24-21 game.
Their numbers are modest and they spread the ball around in both running backs and recievers. For a high school team they are well-balance rushing for 209 yards per game and passing for 121 yards per game. Quarterback #12 Justin Horn leads the team having thrown for over 1,000 yards this season. Horn is also their leading rusher with 444 yards. That makes him a serious multiple threat.
