Panthers fall to Athens, 26-12
The North Penn-Mansfield Panthers suffered a 26-12 NTL Large School Division loss on the road in Athens on Friday, September 1.

“We made plays when we needed to, that was a two point game, could have been a tied game with our conversion until the fourth quarter,” said Panther head coach Tom Dickinson. “That running back, he’s good. Zack Jayne is a good ball player and he wore us down. It’s a young team, we made mistakes, but that outcome could have been different.”
