De­fense Rests

North Penn locks down Ne­shaminy, moves onto Dis­trict 1-6A semi­fi­nals

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

1-6A Play­offs Fri­day night.

The win ad­vances the topseeded Knights (12-0) to the dis­trict semis next week, to take on ei­ther Down­ing­town West or Tru­man. The No. 8 Skins fin­ished their sea­son at 8-4.

Right from the start, North Penn’s de­fense was bent but didn’t break.

Ne­shaminy drove right down­field on its open­ing se­ries but ul­ti­mately came up empty with a missed field goal. The Skins drove into scor­ing range on their sec­ond se­ries but had a turnover on downs.

Be­hind the run­ning of Chris James, the Skins again mounted a drive late in the first quar­ter, cash­ing in with a four-yard touch­down run by Oley Manzvk. The ex­tra point was blocked by the Knights.
