I do understand that since it wasn't a complete game that the stats can't be counted. However, I do think that those who were not there need to understand what was going on at the time the boys were called off the field due to lightning with :43 seconds left in the first half. The game was finally called at 11:30 pm by administration of both schools.

Christian Barber had a 32 yard TD called back due to a holding penalty in addition to a fumble the Panthers had on the 4 yard line. While neither resulted in points, it's not like the Buck defense was able to stop Follett.

Yes, many teams have come back after half time and pulled out a victory, as Follett did that to Southland in the 2015 playoffs down 24 points at half.

I felt it needed to be noted that the Panthers could've easily been going in 36-14 (or 40-14) and I know it's a would've, could've kind of statement. I would also like to add that the White Deer coaching staff along with the players were chanting "Get #3" before kickoff (for those who don't know, #3 is Christian Barber). Now I know that can be misconstrued or maybe even misinterpreted...but it doesn't look good to those who heard it.
Maybe we are a little sensitive to that statement as Christian was in a terrible car accident this past summer and we weren't even sure he would even get to play football.

It was a dominating performance by the Panthers who scored on their very first offensive series. While what White Deer did the games before coming in was impressive, the Bucks couldn't stop the Follett offense. Even if the game wasn't completely in control at the time it was called, it should be noted that the Panthers scored on White Deer and rather easily at that.

I think White Deer will have a hard time even making the playoffs....as both Happy and McLean are formidable opponents.

My understanding is that White Deer is going to take a knee on the first play and allow Whiteface to score, so this will be for naught

And follett is the absolute only team whatsoever that whitedeer has played.. both beat us at groom I watched both games and mclean will beat whitedeer no doubts. Take the hype take the rankings and throw em into the wind the kids and coaches from those two schools will settle it on the field.. Nov the 3rd I can't imagine 8-0 mclean and 7-1 whitedeer the top two defenses for points allowed in the state so far won't or shouldn't be game of the week at least for the panhandle....

it is fake because it is not true at all, the game wasnt played to conclusion...not even a half way played, therefore it's not a loss...and not a win...for anyone. I have personally witnessed teams down more than 20 points win...to say Follett won this game is stupid.

Would be like saying if Richland Springs played Oglesby and the opening kicked off to Oglesby, Oglesby ran it back for a TD and then a tornado touchdown outside of town and they cancelled the game and fled to safety...by your logic Oglesby won that game 6-0.

The arguments that this was a game is ridiculous, they didnt even finish the first half and both coaches agree that it's a cancelled game. Move on

So now you're saying White Deer's record will be 7-1 going into the McLean game... meaning they beat Follett and lost to Happy (unless you're saying they are going to beat Happy and lost to Follett ,which I dont think you are)...Im confused now...first the Follett game counts and it's a loss for WD and now you're saying it counts as a win for WD????

It’s possible that White Deer could’ve came back and won the game. Only down 10 going into halftime, which is really impressive against this Follett squad. To my understanding, didn’t #22 (Born) go down with an injury? That could’ve impacted the game coming out of the half as well. Especially because he was a player with postseason honors after last season. A 24-14 score at half is not a runaway by any means, especially in the game of Sixman.
I was down on the sideline watching Sterling City and Follett this past Friday and I noticed Follett struggled stopping Sterling City’s offense all evening. My point in bringing up Friday’s game has to do with the fact that the Follett defense was getting gashed; probably having to do with #22 not being on the field. The same thing could’ve happened in the second half of the White Deer game.
Nonetheless, Follett is still a very solid squad and they definitely will be making some noise going into the postseason. That Barber kid is awesome to watch and I certainly hope that the Born kid heals quickly.

I acknowledge it doesn't count and never said otherwise. But I did say they actually got scored on at will which we can all acknowledge happened. And yes 7 and 1 after happy beats them.
