Rain for much of the region called for some good old fashioned ground and pound football. All three of North Penn's touchdown came on the ground as Solomon Robinson's key third-quarter 60-yard touchdown run Friday lifted the Knights over La Salle, 21-13. Robinson's run gave the Knights an eight-point lead with less than seven minutes remaining in the third. Julian White rushed for two touchdowns, including a 14-yard score in the fourth quarter to ice game the game for the Knights.
