Prep football: Panthers squander 23-point lead


Meanwhile, the Comets broke off five such plays in the final two quarters. All five either went for or set up touchdowns, allowing Newman to clinch at least a share of the Three Rivers' North Division title while denying E-P's effort to seal its second straight playoff berth.

The Panthers will have to wait until at least next week's game against Morrison to seal a playoff bid, which was where coach Chuck Milem and the Panthers chose to focus.

“We're 5-2, and I'm not complaining at all,” Chandler said. “This one hurts, but we're still exactly where we need to be.”
