Panama Razorbacks football team glad to get first win of season, prepare for Quinton Savages Friday night

October 10, 2012

The Panama Razorbacks football team was able to get its first win of the season last Friday night as it posted a 33-30 District 2A-6 road win over the Antlers Bearcats. It was a good win, but still had a lot to be desired in the mind of Brandon Ellis, Panama's second-year coach.
“It was twofold,” Ellis said about the win. “It was a good win for the kids, but it was a very ugly win. We played well in the first quarter and the last two minutes of the game, but it was a win. We came out healthy after the game. We got the monkey off our back. Hopefully, that will get us going the rest of the year.”
Being in District 2A-6 this year and 2013, the district is an abnormal seven-team district, as opposed to the customary eight-team district. Thus, one week during the district season, each team will have one of two things — an open date or a non-district opponent. Panama has the latter.
The Hogs (1-5) will entertain the Quinton Savages (2-4) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at George Ollie Stadium. Ellis would rather play than have an open date.
“You don't want to take a break because it breaks up your momentum,” he said. “I've played them ever since I was at Gore. They've always had a competitive team.”
