NEWTOWN – North Penn’s (13-1) big first half led to a 42-6 win over Neshaminy (12-2) Friday night in the PIAA Class AAAA District One championship game at Council Rock North.

On Neshaminy’s first drive, they were faced with a fourth-and-one from North Penn’s 46-yard line. The Redskins went for it and the Knights defense came up with a big stop. The next play Craig Needhammer went 54-yards for the score and the Knights never looked back.

The Knights made it 14-0 when Corey Ernst hit Ralph Reeves for a 12-yard touchdown pass. They added one more score right before the first half ended. Dominic Taggart’s one-yard score put them up 21-0.

The Knights got three more rushing touchdowns in the second half. Brandon Mercer scored on runs of 49 and 5. James Fielder added a one-yard run.

With the backups in for North Penn, Neshaminy’s Cole Creighton got their only score in the fourth quarter on a three-yard touchdown run.

With the win North Penn waits for the winner of the Easton Area vs. LaSalle game.

    No, not really. Nesh just panicked after they got down 14 – 0. They started passing the ball. They are not a passing team. If they would have stuck to their game plan, it would have been more competitive. If NP has no turnovers, they will beat LaSalle rather convincily.

    NP must have played the game of their season; congrats Knights.

    Looking forward to the rematch next week!
