Hornets fall to PHS in season finale

Thursday, October 31, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY AND STEPHEN ALTHOUSE in Sports

On a night in which its offense was nearly extinct, the Emmaus football team was defeated last Friday night by the Parkland Trojans 24-3 (8-2) in each school’s regular season finale at Parkland School District Stadium.

Too many mistakes and too much Parkland defense made this installment of the “Battle for Cedar Crest” a miserable one for Emmaus. The Green Hornets (5-5) were held to their lowest scoring output of the season. In 53 plays, Emmaus managed just 128 yards and eight first downs and converted only four of 14 third-down plays.
