Panthers dominant in 48-14 win over Bucktail
The North Penn-Mansfield Panthers scored early and often in a 48-14 win over Bucktail on Friday, September 29.

“Tonight was a long trip for us,” said Panther head coach Tom Dickinson. “This team (Bucktail) they battle though, 17 kids I think dressed so we knew we’d be able to play a lot of players. Our offense executed early, our defense shut them down. We got our starters in and out healthy and then just about everyone on the team played, so that’s the most important thing.”
Liberty soccer shuts out Troy, 5-0
The North Penn-Liberty boys soccer team scored a 5-0 shutout victory over Troy at home on Monday, October 2.

Both teams took 14 shots during the course of the game and Troy had a 8-4 advantage in corner kicks. Liberty’s Riley Walker made 9 saves in goal while the Trojans tallied 7.
On the Radar – Bullying Prevention
October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and this segment is some basic information about bullying in order to help others understand there is a problem and there are things we can do to try to prevent it.
So what can we do in our schools, communities, families, and peer groups to help prevent this from occurring?
– Have a zero tolerance policy. Let everyone know the behavior will not be accepted
– Use peer pressure in a positive way. Show support for the victim of bullying and let the bully know that their behavior isn’t winning them any friends.
– Maintain open lines of communication so incidents might be more readily reported.
– Be a good role model for family, friends and peers. Set the example for others to follow.
– Stay educated on and aware of the issue. Many people don’t know that bullying can be a crime.
