The Panthers completely overwhelmed a confused Harriton team which was also missing one of their key running backs. Haven got off to a slow start on offense but defense was completely smothering for the whole game which shows in the stats and the score, 47-8.
The Lower Merion Aces come into this Friday’s game also 1-1 (like the Panthers). However the Aces have played two non-league games losing to Chichester 13-7 but bouncing back and defeating Delco Christian 19-7. So far the Aces haven’t shown much in the running game. Elijah Smith #25 is their key running back and last week did have 9 carries for 107 yards and one touchdown. The do like to pass, however, so look for sophomore QB Matt O’Connor #12 (15 for 27 and 130 yards and 2 TD’s) to keep finding #26 Deion Davis who last week caught 8 passes for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Rashon Cooke #1 also caught 4 passes for 20 yards. The Aces gave up 224 rushing yards in the win.
