Panther cross country teams compete at Region

Both Quinlan Ford Panther boys and girls cross country teams achieved success this season and ended the season Monday, Oct. 23, with a good showing at the 4A Region 2 Meet.

Coach Paul Phlieger said, “This has been the third year in a row the boys have qualified as a team for the meet, and I couldn’t be more proud of a group of young men as I am of this year’s team.”

The team finished 11th overall of 24 teams in the region. Personal places included Enrique Serrano, 25th; Jose Sanchez, 47th; Landon Hoff, 88th; Evan Konopka, 96th; Sabastion Boyett, 144th; Jordan Cummings, 162nd; and Alan Landazuri, 175th place.

Coach Stacey Wallen said, “To say that I am proud of these girls is an understatement. This was the first time in at least 15 years that the girls have qualified for a Regional meet.

Quinlan Ford loses at Anna 21-35

The Quinlan Ford Panthers lost Friday night 21-35 at Anna to the Coyotes.

Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Todd Wallace commented the game was a “very disappointing loss.”

“Edgar went down on the third play of the game, and our guys kind of went flat,” Wallace said. He said Aguillon was certainly missed at defensive end in trying to stop the Coyotes’ running game.

Wallace said, “Because of this, we had to stunt more than usual and it kind of became a guessing game, and opened us up for them to hit a few big plays. Their defensive line dominated us and really slowed our running game. Couple that with two turnovers in the first half, and it is not a good recipe for success. We have to try and figure out a way to get back on track this week despite the injuries.”

The Coyotes were on the scoreboard first in the opening quarter with a 49-yard touchdown run. The PAT was not good.

The score after the first period was Quinlan 0, Anna 6.

Quinlan Ford loses heartbreaker at Princeton 24-28

The Quinlan Ford Panthers took a 5-0 perfect record into its first district game Friday night and a lead into the fourth quarter before Princeton grabbed the 24-28 win with the game’s final touchdown.

Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Todd Wallace said, “It was obviously an extremely disappointing loss. The guys played their guts out and put themselves in a position to win the game. However, we simply did not make the few plays that we needed to make at critical times in order to win the game. We have to learn from the mistakes that we made so that when we get in that situation again, we make those plays. Every week from here on out is a big game. The guys know that, and I believe they are up for the challenge.”

The Princeton Panthers scored first in the first quarter on a five-yard run. The PAT was good, and Princeton led 0-7.
