DENVER, Pa. — By halftime of the District 3 Class 5A championship game at Cocalico Friday night, Cedar Cliff’s 2019 football season was over.
The Colts still had two quarters of mercy rule running clock to cap their first appearance in a championship game since 1996, but the competitive phase of this title tilt was decided in the opening 12 minutes.
And it wasn’t a fair fight.
The Eagles dominated every phase of the game against a Colts team that never recovered from the opening five minutes.
Led by multi-talented quarterback Noah Palm, the No. 1 seeded Eagles raced to a 21-0 lead after one quarter and never looked back against the overmatched Colts to post a 45-7 victory.
