Panthers douse the Fire

For the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team, this autumn’s trip to Holy Family Catholic turned out far different than last season.
After giving up two touchdowns in rapid fashion to set up a 19-13 loss last year, this time the Panthers gave up just one pre-halftime field goal in grinding out a 14-3 victory on Friday, Sept. 29.
“I’m really proud at how our kids played, especially on the defensive side of the ball,” coach Scott Tschimperle said. “We really frustrated Holy Family with some coverages that had them not knowing what to expect.”
GSL improved to 4-1 on the season after the Panther defense allowed a scant three points to the Fire, despite the hosts entering the red zone four times during the contest.
Holy Family advanced inside GSL’s 20-yard line twice, yet emerged empty-handed before the visitors put together their first scoring drive of the contest and took a lead they did not relinquish.
