Inquirer: Rick O'Brien: N. Penn vs. Ridley: A rout or a rumble?
Rick O'Brien writes: "With its vaunted downhill attack, North Penn has outscored the opposition by a whopping 475-117 this season.
Next on the card, in Friday night's PIAA Class AAAA state quarterfinal, which also will serve as the District 1 championship, is a Ridley team that features a rugged defense potentially able to slow down the explosive Knights. The unit has notched five shutouts and yielded an average of only 7.5 points per game."
Game plan and execution. Both Ridley and North Penn have had superb execution this year, so who comes up with the better game plan? Dennis Decker or Dick Beck. In my opinion, Coach Beck has raised his level of coaching this year. He has gotten more out of this team than anyone thought possible. Dennis Decker is a first year coach, although he does have an excellent supporting cast. I'm looking for a good game, but I still think the Knights will win by 2 scores.
