ATHENS, P.A. (WETM) – Athens football earned their 2nd win of the season on a special night.
Athens football wrapped up the NTL week 6 slate with a special win over North Penn-Mansfield. The Wildcats beat the Panthers in the low scoring game, thanks to a 1st half touchdown pass from Connor Davidson to Eli Chapman and the extra point from Adam Kemp. A failed 2-point conversion after a touchdown pass from Karson Dominick to Luke Kreger, would ultimately cost the Panthers the win, 7-6.
Aside from the in-game action, Athens and North Penn-Mansfield wore gold on their uniforms, as a part of “Gold Night” at the school. Gold Night, along with homecoming festivities supported the Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone initiative. Fans and teams wore the #KCFCA gold color and were encouraged to purchase rally towels, tote bags, and t-shirts, with proceeds going to 3 Athens area families, whose children are battling cancer.
