ATHENS - On a rainy homecoming night in Athens, the Wildcats proved they still have North Penn's number, playing stingy defense and shutting down the Panthers, 14-6.

"We played great defense tonight, but except for the Danville game, I feel we've played solid defense all year," said Coach Young afterward. "It's offense where we need to improve."
BLOOMSBURG - North Penn head coach Tom Dickinson knew the Panthers could pretty much throw the football whenever they wanted to Friday night against Bloomsburg. What he didn't know was whether a patchwork offensive line would give quarterback Mackey Stiner time to throw the football.
