September 14, 1956 Lansford opens its season on a positive note, defeating McAdoo by a 13-6 score. After falling behind early, the Panthers use Edmund Gargula's 25-yard touchdown pass to Tony Zonca and Joe Gazo's successful extra point to take the lead for good. The winners, coached by Dick Forster, add insurance in the final frame when Gargula again throws a TD pass - this one a 29-yard strike to Jim Zuzu.
