LANGHORNE >> As expected, there were absolutely no surprises Friday night in the latest edition of the historic Pennsbury-Neshaminy football rivalry.
Improving to 4-1, Neshaminy cruised past Pennsbury, 34-0, for a victory that at the time kept its faints playoff hopes alive.
In order to make the state playoffs that get underway next week, Neshaminy needed to win and hope two of the remaining four undefeated teams in the PIAA District 1 Class 6-A field lost.
As it turned out, all four of them won as Pennridge beat Abington, 21-15, Souderton crushed Bensalem, 55-12, Coatesville hammered Kennett, 34-6,and Spring-Ford was a 20-14 winner over Cumberland Valley.
Pennsbury, meanwhile, is now 0-5 and having the worst season in the history of modern day Falcon football. Should Pennsbury fail to beat Archbishop Carroll next week, it will mark the first time in at least 60 years that the Falcons failed to win at least one game.
CR North 23, CR South 7
NEWTOWN >> The Council Rock North Indians scored a huge win to capture the Rock Cup with a 23 to 7 win over the Golden Hawks of Council Rock South. The win shows the North football program is very much on a successful rebuilding track under second-year coach John Greiner.
