DOYELSTOWN, PA. — In a highly anticipated Friday night matchup, the Pennsbury Falcons got dominated on their home turf, 24-13, by the Central Bucks South Titans.
Pennsbury now falls to 0-2 against Suburban One League National play, which digs them in a deep hole if they were looking to regain their reign on top of the SOL National League.
But, as we know, all it takes is a game to spark something. The Falcons hope it will come Friday night as they complete the trifecta of Central Bucks schools, finishing off with the East Patriots in Doylestown.
Here are three storylines to look for on Friday night:
For the second straight week, a Central Bucks defense held the Pennsbury Falcons.
This time the South Titans allowed just 187 rushing yards to a very strong Pennsbury rushing offense, leading to a 5-0 start with a 24-13 win.
Our DeLorenzo’s The Burg player of the game defender Walker Murray said that head coach Galen Snyder said postgame, “[Central Bucks West and South] aren’t doing nothing special, they’re just doing a little better than us. We gotta execute a little better, and just come back better next week against CB East, good team.”
Completing the trio
Thankfully for the Falcons, they are almost done with Central Bucks, for now.
The 3-2 CB East Patriots are another very good team. Their defeats have come to two outstanding programs who share undefeated teams in Souderton, 23-21, and Central Bucks South, 13-6, with shutout victories over Harry S. Truman, Bensalem, and an 18-17 win against Pennridge in double overtime.
Senior tight end and Penn commit Jack Donnelly is a name to look for as he had 99 receiving yards on seven catches from senior quarterback Dan Voglesong and scored the Patriots’ lone touchdown from seven yards out to beat Pennridge in that double-overtime win last week.
“It’s gonna be another tough game,” Murray said postgame after their Week 5 loss to CB South. “We’re just gonna put our heads down, play hard, physical. Offense, they’re gonna get it together. Defense, we just gotta gameplan hard and physical. That’s it.”
Never say never
Last season, the Falcons won the SOL National division, giving them home-field advantage in the first round of the District 1-6A Playoffs. In came an underdog North Penn Knights program, looking to get revenge for a loss earlier in the season to Pennsbury.
To everyone’s shock, North Penn showed up hungry and defeated Pennsbury 22-21 at Falcon Field, ending their season.
What does this show? When you get into the playoffs, anything can happen.
We have seen it so many times. Look at the Phillies last season. They squeaked in with the worst record out of all teams to make the postseason and came out of it National League champions.
The Falcons have themselves in a hole in the SOL at the moment coming off of back-to-back losses on their home turf. A big win against the Patriots on the road could change the momentum of their season.
Never say die until the fat lady sings.
