Perryville takes Cup from HAVRE DE GRACE

For the first time since 2004, the Perryville Panthers (2-0) have the Susquehanna Cup trophy in Cecil County after winning the annual Susquehanna Bowl contest with the rival Warriors (1-1) Monday night in Havre de Grace.

The Panthers scored early, reeling off the game's first 28 points en route to a 34-14 win on the James R. Harris Stadium turf.

Panthers running back Joe Peaker was the Warriors biggest nemesis, rushing for 208 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries. Peaker opened the scoring with a 20-yard touchdown run and added a 10-yard scoring run before the first quarter expired.

Teammate Nehemiah Wallace added a four-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, but the extra-point failed and the Panthers took the 20-0 lead into the half.

Propelled by three major penalties against Perryville to begin play in the third quarter, Havre de Grace saw its best scoring chance to that point fizzle. A first and goal at the Panthers one, resulted in a four-down, five yard loss.
