HS Football: Panthers, Redhawks Duel In I-8 Matchup
While we enter the fourth week of the High School Football season, the third week of conference play in the Interstate 8 features two area squads that will tangle in the Cereal City.
Under new head coach Jason Stealy, the Marshall Redhawks have started the season off with two wins and close to an undefeated start after a close Week 2 loss to Coldwater. The Redhawks have used their defense to their advantage all season, while the young offense is starting to gel heading into this week.
The Pennfield Panthers are also young on both sides of the ball, and have struggled to corral opposing offenses the last two weeks against Parma Western and Coldwater.
Last year, the injury bug struck Marshall during the Week 4 battle while Pennfield grinded in a 27-13 victory, giving Panthers Head Coach Mike McGuire his first win at the helm. It would be just one of two victories for the Green and Gold last season.
