Three words: Friday Night Football. This one simple phrase can make a grown man cry depending on how well his favorite high school team played that night. On October 30th, the Elder Panthers traveled to the La Salle stadium to duke it out on Lancer territory for the Friday win. Tensions were high, but this was expected. What I didn’t expect (yet I was pleasantly surprised) was the amount of Lancer spirit as the student section dressed up in their Halloween costumes. High school boys + creative Halloween costumes = 😍👌😂🙌
The game began with Elder scoring a touchdown and field goal, for which the Panther crowd went crazy. Elder obviously wasn’t stopping there, as the game ended with Elder winning 21-7.
With La Salle going to playoffs, can they prove themselves worthy of state again? Or will Elder come out on top?
La Salle’s schedule is as follows:
11/6 @ 7:30PM, La Salle vs. Butler (La Salle’s stadium)
The rest of the schedule is “to be determined”, as La Salle is going to the playoffs. But the games will fall on 11/20, 11/27, & 12/4.
Elder’s schedule is as follows:
11/7 @ 7:00PM, Elder vs. Fairfield (Elder’s stadium)
