The North Penn Knights are now 6-2 after trouncing Souderton last Friday for their 26th straight Suburban One Continental victory. Depending on how other teams do in the next 2 weeks, they are going to end up right in the middle of the playoff seedings. It is not inconceivable that they will play the #1 seed in the second week. What would be realy interesting would be if PW somehow ends up with the 1 seed and the Knights have to travel down to Plymouth Meeting on November 18. Would the student, Dan Chang, be able to best the master, Dick Beck? I don't think anyone in District 1 AAAA wants to play North Penn right now. They Knights expect to get far into the play-offs. I'm sure they would relish a chance to meet LaSalle or St. Joe's Prep again in the Eastern final. (Just don't let Coach Beck hear you talking about that.)

North Penn update
The Knights pasted Quakertown last Friday, 35-0. All the reports say it was an old-fashioned, Suburban One straight out run over the defense. North Penn keeps in simple in win over Quakertown As Kevin Cooney put it in the Courier-Times, "The straightest point to the end zone for the Knights on Friday night was a straight line right through the Quakertown defense." After which he highlighted that the North Penn offense put up nearly 500 all-purpose yards. Meanwhile, Souderton was in a shoot-out with CB South, prevailing 44-42. Souderton outlast CB South in wild one.
This was all in preparation for this weeks showdown at Crawford Stadium. The SOL featured game this week will prove whether Souderton has advanced far enough to play with the big boys or whether North Penn will continue dominance of the SOL Continental Division.
