Norristown

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - SPORTS -

it 14-7 with 38 sec­onds re­main­ing in the third quar­ter.

Other than that, the Ea­gles con­stantly set them­selves back or gave the War­riors good field po­si­tion with 14 penal­ties in the sec­ond half alone for a to­tal of 115 yards and 18 in­frac­tions on the day for 145 yards.

Norristown had a chance to ex­pand its lead early in the fourth when Wat­son and Thomas hooked up on a 33yard play to the War­rior 20.

“We fi­nally got it go­ing, try­ing to keep go­ing to our play­maker,” said Mil­li­gan.

The Ea­gles ad­vanced to a 1st-and-goal at the nine be­fore penal­ties pushed them all the way back to the 37 and they turned the ball over on downs at the 30. But Norristown got the ball back on a sack on fourth down by Liam Smith and San­tio Car­lo­magno and ran out the fi­nal two min­utes with the help of a 23-yard run for a first down by Wat­son.

“Get­ting our first league win is al­ways good,” said Mil­li­gan. “We had two close games that we weren’t able to win. As things go along, we’re try­ing to change the cul­ture.”

So is Methac­ton, which had lost 15 in a row be­fore de­feat­ing Boy­er­town in Week 5.

“We made way too many mis­takes, par­tic­u­larly on of­fense, if we ex­pect to win foot­ball games,” said War­rior coach Dave Lotier, whose team was flagged for nine penal­ties for 85 yards and threw three in­ter­cep­tions. “Our kids are fight­ing hard. But if you don’t ex­e­cute, you’re not go­ing to be suc­cess­ful.
