The last-minute change of time and venue did not alter the Panthers’ energy as they dominated the Archbishop Curley Friars 46-34.
The Panthers proved dominate in the first half, leading 26-7 at halftime.
Cornerback Nasir Edmond ’20 combined for more than 200 all-purpose yards and scored two touchdowns. Sophomore running back Keshawn Wheeler had two rushing touchdowns as Pallotti had forced six turnovers against the Friars. This consisted of four interceptions (Julian Ganthier ’20, Qaevon Patterson ’21, and Edmond) and two forced fumbles (Cameron Prescott ’21 and Sam Dina ’20). Pallotti completed the game with no passing touchdowns.
“We played good but we would’ve dominated more if we didn’t give up to many second half points,” said linebacker Norlian Lambe ’21.
After the previous night’s rain, the homefield was declared unsuitable so Athletic Director Pat Courtemanche was forced to relocate the game to Blandair Park, which moved game time from 7 p.m. to 4 p.m. That did not deter students, parents, and alumni from turning out in force.
The team had a 4-3 record going into their October 20 game against Severn at 2 p.m.
