TOWAMENCIN- If an NBA team scores 92 points in their game, it’s no big deal but 92 points in a high school game is quite impressive.  The Knights fell behind early and were never able to catch up to the Panthers and their hot offense.

The North Penn Knights (9-10) lost to the Quakertown Panthers (5-13) 92-70 in a Thursday night matchup in the North Penn gymnasium.

“We were just trying to play the tempo we feel comfortable playing at.  Obviously they’re pretty comfortable at that tempo too and once they got going, they played with a lot of confidence and they’re a good team,” Head Coach John Conrad said.

The Knights only lead of the night came off a three from senior Chris Caputo with 6:14 left in the first quarter but after that, it was all about the Panthers offense.  Their shooting from downtown led to a run that gave the Panthers a 15-5 lead and eventual 27-12 lead by the end of the first quarter.

The Knights tried to play their game with a quick tempo that they have grown accustomed too but they couldn’t get on that major run to catch up.  The Panthers had a 49-31 lead into halftime and came out of halftime without missing a beat.  The Knights did play just as well as the Panthers in the second half however.  The second half score was only 43-39 in the Panthers favor.  But the 18-point lead in the first half got the job done.  The Knights did get to see some of their younger players in the 4th quarter as their young talent was substituted in.

“Those guys work hard during practice and we just felt like it was a good opportunity to get them some varsity experience and I thought they played well,” Coach Conrad said on his young talent.

The Knights will have to forget about this one quick as they are right back at it tomorrow on the road against the CB West Bucks.

“Good news is we play tomorrow night so I just told the guys to forget this one and come back ready to play tomorrow.  Not much to take away from that one,” Coach Conrad said.

North Penn: Caputo 12 pts, Barrow 9 pts, McIver 8 pts, Mitchell 8 pts, Larkins 8 pts, Coley 6 pts, Chaffee 6 pts, Swanson 6 pts, Pulugura 5 pts, Carangi 2 pts

Quakertown: Casey 22 pts, Rosenberger 19 pts, Lucas 15 pts, Catalano 11 pts, Ortiz 8 pts, Merwath 6 pts, Bauer 5 pts, Tuley 2 pts, Kave 2 pts, Mestayer 2 pts
