PAC Football cruises to win over Coastal

The PAC Varsity Football team (3-1, 3-0 SIFA) cruise to a 44-0 win over the Coastal Hurricanes last Friday at Bray Park. The win, coupled with last week’s 50-22 win over the Augusta Eagles, solidified the Panthers’ hold on the #1 spot in the SIFA Football Standings. The win also propelled the Panthers to #19 in the latest national poll.

Jance Lamb led the offense completing 8 of 14 passes for 193 yds and adding 112 yards rushing on 18 carries. Cam Youmans led the receiving corps with 2 receptions for 51 years while Conner Essig added 108 all-purpose yards and 2 touchdowns.

Toryn Burns, Sean McNulty and Jack Puffenbarger anchored a very stingy Panthers defense that harassed the Coastal quarterback all evening, tallying 5 sacks. Junior Matthew Moore added a late interception to seal the win.

The Panthers are at home this week against Orangeburg Christian Academy for the Hall of Fame Game. At halftime of Friday’s game, the Panthers will induct the first 8 members into the PAC Panthers Football Hall of Fame. Looking back to the very beginning of the football program, the Panthers will honor those who help start and build the program to where it is today. This year’s HOF Inductees include Coach Clint Lawyer, William Lawyer, Hunter Brown, Jacob Robinson, Austin Coates, Robert Hogg, Drew Stone and Jackson Gleaton. Kickoff is at 7:00.
