Two teams with multi-game winning streaks faced off in a potential 6A playoff matchup. CD East up 14-7 in the 4th, Mekhi Flowers gets an interception that eventually turns into a field goal to push the Panthers to a 17-7 lead. Cumberland Valley would strike back with a kick of their own to keep close with a 17-10 scoreline. Two fumbles by CD East threatened to tie the game, but the defense held strong to hang on for the 17-10 win.
