Strath Haven Anthony Crawford was carried by his offensive linemen Saturday night.

Literally.

The junior fullback needed to gain two yards on fourth down late in the fourth quarter of Strath Haven’s 49-35 victory at Haverford. The brawny Crawford is extremely difficult to tackle when he’s running behind his line, but he required a friendly boost on this particular play. He ran straight ahead, got hoisted in the air and stretched for the first down.

“I got stopped there, and they carried me over,” Crawford said. “They’re just a bunch of dogs and they balled out all game.”

he offensive line of Jack Beck, Nick Filios, Ethan Barrar, Jake Millett and Aiden Williams dominated and made life easier for Haven’s three-pronged rushing attack. Crawford and Chase Barlow are the thunder. Matt Shuler is the lightning.

Kevin Clancy’s Wing-T offense did its job exceptionally well for a third straight week. The Panthers (3-0, 2-0 Central) have scored 139 points in 12 quarters.
