The Panthers are on a roll.

Just four weeks into the new season, they already have more wins than they managed in any of the past five years.

On Friday night, the rejuvenated Panthers traveled to Fort Bragg and came away with a 44-6 victory, improving to 3-1 and guaranteeing themselves more wins than in any season since 2015.

“It was a great effort,” first-year head coach Fel Barlow said. “We didn’t have any mental breakdowns and we kept our composure. They’re learning mentally, and I love that part.”

Junior quarterback Jack Clancy threw for three touchdowns in the win, two to Mettah Kuska and one to Graeson Amato, and he also ran in for a TD.

John Randall and Connor Berg each also scored on TD runs, while junior defensive back Willie Baumgarten led a big showing by the defense with two interceptions.

The Panthers D also forced three fumbles.

Defensively the Panthers have allowed just 20 points all season, including posting two shutouts.

The high-flying Panthers have a bye next week before playing at Hoopa in two weeks.

  1. That is some great news for Mack. lad to see them with an up and coming program. Historically, Fort Bragg has had a strong program.
