WOODSTOCK, Aug. 26 — The Page County Panther Defense showed a lot of grit on the gridiron Friday night. The Panthers hit hard, recorded several tackles for loss, and did not allow an offensive touchdown until the final seconds of the third quarter.
And they did so on the road, against one of the best teams in the region.
Although they allowed 211 yards on the ground, 65 of those yards came on two fourth-quarter breakaway touchdowns. And despite that breakdown in the fourth quarter, Page County showed that they will be tough to score on this season — if they can stay away from injuries…just like every other team.
The Panthers (0-1) will travel to Nelson County this Friday night for a non-district road game, followed by a third-straight road game on Sept. 9 at Staunton. Page County doesn’t host their home opener until Sept. 16, when county-rival Luray comes to Buddy Comer Stadium.
