Panthers handle Bengals

Western rushes for 430 yards in road win.

“There were maybe two or three really long plays that they had, but everything else was just pound, pound, pound, make ‘em earn it, earn it, earn it and to their credit they did. Overall I thought our kids played hard, but they do a great job with the talent they have in getting the most out of what their talent is and being physical and aggressive.”

Peru scored instantly in the second half as Steven McBride took the kickoff 75 yards to start the third quarter. Again, Western responded with a touchdown on a weaving, bobbing 42-yard scamper from Glenn. Later in the fourth he had another TD run where he looked to be bottled up inside, only to escape with nimble moves en route to a 32-yard score.

Glenn finished with a game-high 117 yards on just nine carries. Also in the second half, Panther sophomore Min Park punched in a one-yard score to complete a breakout game. In his most extensive action of the season, Park ran for 112 yards on 20 carries. Lenahan added 92 yards on 16 totes. Bellus added 56 yards on the ground and 99 through the air, and Brooklyn Watters ran for 57 yards.

“I think the kids ran hard but i think we did a pretty nice job blocking up front,” Andrews said. His squad rushed for 430 yards.

Peru got a 39-yard option keeper run by quarterback Nolan Brimbury to score in the third quarter and added a three-yard Richardson run. The Bengals rushed for 198 yards with Brimbury gaining 69 and Richardson 68.
