NEXT GAME:                                          FRIDAY AUGUST   2019                            
On a cold misty/raining night at Bob Comings Field, the Panthers pounded the 1-8 Golden Eagles 42-0 to end
the season with an 8-2 record, but no league title and mathematically eliminated from the OHSAA playoffs. The
shame of it is, if Perry was playing in any other region in D-2, they would be playing next week, but such are the
circumstances because of the division they're in and the loss to Lake.
Jarin Curtis rushed for 183 yards on 15 carries and 3 TD's, to lead the Panthers attack. He scored on a 38 yard
run in the first quarter, a one yard run in the second quarter and an 11 yard run in the third quarter, most times,
breaking tackles or running over would be tacklers. Mix in a 19 yard TD by sophomore Josh Lemon in the
second quarter, along with a 10 yard run by Kyle Middaugh right before halftime and the Panthers had built a
28-0 lead. The Golden Eagles threatened to score only once in the second quarter when they had a first and
goal from the 2, but the Panthers thwarted them on 4 downs and took the ball over on their 3 and would
eventually score on Middaugh's 10 yard run.
The Panther received the opening second half kickoff and on the second play, Middaugh took off around the
right side on a sweep and raced 62 yards for the score. Caden Basham's PAT made it 35-0. On the Eagles next
drive a deflected pass on a GlenOak WR's leg was caught by the Panthers Josh Lemon, who returned it 24
yards to the Eagles 11. RB Jarin Curtis ended his scoring career at Perry on the next play as he scored his 17th
touchdown of the 2018 season.
