Quakertown 20 - North Penn 35

Coach Beck wasn't very happy about the Knights' efforts last Friday. From Football Fever 2010 (Vol. 7):

Winning is something that is expected at SOL Continental Conference power North Penn (6-1). The recognized Knight program has reached that elite position in the state, and for North Penn it is not if you win the game – but how do you look when you win?

“If we don’t correct the mistakes we are making, it is going to be a short season,” said North Penn head coach Dick Beck in reference to the Knights play in a 35-20 win over Quakertown. “We just didn’t play smart – we made a lot of bad mental mistakes.

“We can’t continue to win playing football that way,” added Beck. “There are no guarantees any Friday night.”

I read somewhere else that the Knights have averaged 12 games per year under Dick Beck's leadership. The Born Power Index lists North Penn as No. 1 in District 1. (Not that it means anything). The Daily News lists North Penn at #3 in their area high school football rankings.
