PENN HILLS — In a game in which the Penn Hills Indians offense hung up 50 points in their home opener against Greater Latrobe, the talk all week is going to be about the offensive attack. The fast-paced unit looked unstoppable in space, and when quarterback Hollis Mathis gets going, there is no stopping this freight train. However, that might sell short what Penn Hills is capable of on defense.
Friday, they completely engulfed Latrobe and forced them into a one-dimensional offense from early into the first quarter until the final whistle. Penn Hills gave up a deep pass to start the game and started in a 7-0 hole. It was not until deep into the fourth quarter when the game was well out of hand that Latrobe scored again. In the interim, it was a challenge for the Cats to even make it to midfield.
