The Panthers wrapped up a Class A play-off birth with a 35-13 victory over Cornwall. J. J. Maloney set the tone early by returning the opening kick-off 95 yards for a touchdown. He later scored twice more on runs of 5 and 3 yards. Trevor Pedrick led the defense with 11 tackles and added 73 yards rushing and a td. Greg Drobot led Panther rushers with 118 yards and a td, and also knocked down two passes on defense. The Panther defense was again rock solid not allowing Cornwall to establish any kind of running game and forcing them to go almost completely to the air. Adolfo Rivera went 5 for 5 on extra points, making him 39 for 39 on the season. This also made him 59 straight over the past two seasons breaking the state record of 56 straight.
