I just wanted to say that the Panthers played with great poise and character tonight.Though they were on the losing end Saturday nite I see great things in their future. I ask in Jesus' name that you heal their physical and spiritual wounds and keep them on your path and not to get discouraged. Thank you Panthers for your hospitality and God bless each and every one of you.
Your servant in Christ,
Cutter #66 Logan Robinson
from what i hear the cutters traveled rather light and made sure they rotated all players, and the starting QB did the coaching for the O.

Cutters Demolish Panthers
STURGIS, MI- Following their first loss in more than a year’s time, the Indiana Cutters proved Saturday that they are still a force to be reckoned with as they won 63-3. They traveled to Sturgis, Michigan to take on the St. Joseph’s County Panthers, and that is pretty much all they had to do in order to win the contest.
The game began with the Cutters’ defense forcing a three-and-out, a result that the Panthers would become accustomed to as the day progressed. Then the scoring onslaught began as Quarterback Josh Lawrence found wide receiver Derrick Harris on a 17 yard strike. Not too much time had passed and Lawrence found himself in the end zone again on a three yard run. Before the half was done Israel Thompson and Aaron Biggs each added two rushing scores of their own, combining for 113 yards. Those six scores combined with interceptions by Antonio Key and Garrett Greathouse led to complete domination by the Cutters. The half came to an end with the Cutters leading 42-0.
Unfortunately for the Panthers, much of the same was in store for the second half. Thompson and Lawrence each scored on the ground, and for the second time on the day the Panthers saw one of their passes end up in the hands of a Cutter with Key on the back of his jersey. This time though it was younger brother Andre who came up with the interception, and ran the ball 52 yards for the touchdown. The Panthers were however, able to gather a little bit of redemption, as they kicked a field goal as time expired in the fourth quarter.
The Cutters ended the game victorious for the fifth time this season. The players had good reason to feel good about the victory. The coaching staff however, is concerned that the team may not be focused on correcting their mistakes from this game given its high score. The Cutters return to Edgewood next week for the regular season finale against an Elkhart squad that will provide a much higher level of competition, and they cannot afford to take them lightly. Enjoy it for a week Cutters fans, the Shamrock are up next.
