Are the Panthers for real? That question will be answered by their performance against the Cougars, the No. 2-ranked team in the Daily Times Super 7. Haven hung tough with Interboro on opening night (26-13 loss) before consecutive blowout wins over Harriton and Lower Merion. Fullback Zack Hussein is having a great season. He rushed for 204 yards and two TDs in a 36-14 throttling of Lower Merion.
The Cougars leaned on junior quarterback Jack Psenicska (13-for-19, 222 yards, three TDs), wide receiver Kyle Long (6-137, two TDs) and a stifling defensive effort (DE Kevin Deal two sacks) en route to a 20-8 win at Upper Darby. The Cougars have allowed eight or fewer points in each of their first three games.
