Panther Valley head coach Pat Crampsie has seen one important constant in his team during the first week of the season defense.
So, despite some offensive struggles in their first three games, the Panthers have been able to record a pair of victories.
Wednesday night, the Panthers defeated Freeland MMI, 46-29, thanks in large part to their defensive effort.
"Absolutely, our defense has been solid," Crampsie said. "We thought our 1-3-1 would be effective tonight. It put pressure on MMI, denied passing lanes and cut off penetration opportunities."
