Last night the fighting Panthers of Madison Middle took on the Braves of Clark Moores in a titantic clash of the titans. It was the season opener of the 2007 football season for each of these crosstown rivals.

Matthew Hall was clearly the outstanding player on the field. (Of course I could be a little bit biased.) He played on every snap, both offensively and defensively. As an offensive tackle, Matthew whipped his opponent all night long and opened huge holes for his running backs throughout the game. On defense he played nose tackle where he racked up 8 1/2 tackles, two quarterback hurries, one quarterback sack, and forced a fumble. (Stats courtesy of Matthew Hall.)
The hard fought affair remained scoreless until the the final minute of game when the Panthers scored a touchdown and added a two point conversion. The defense held Clark Moores on the final drive giving the Panthers the 8-0 shutout win. Matthew told me that he wants the defense to go the entire year without giving up any points. He also wants to average 10 or more tackles per game. One thing about that boy, he can set some lofty goals.
