Powell Claws Their Way into the 3A Playoffs, Defeating Evanston
The Powell Panthers really had to scramble to make the 3A playoffs but finished the regular season winning 2 out of 3, including a 39-6 victory over Evanston on Friday. Powell got serious right from the git-go with a couple of Reed Smith touchdown runs to put the Panthers in front 14-0. Smith ran for his 3rd Td of the night in the 2nd quarter and Toran Graham had a pick-six so Powell had a comfortable 29-0 lead at halftime.
In the 4th quarter, the Panthers got a touchdown catch from Trey Steverson and a Hawkin Sweeney field goal. Evanston's lone score was in the 4th quarter on a 7 yard run from Jaxin Moore.
Powell at 6-3 gets the 4th seed in a tough 3A West and will travel to Douglas on Friday night for their first-round playoff game. Evanston will miss the playoffs despite a 5-4 overall record but the Red Devils were 1-4 in conference play,
