Patriots / Titans Football: C.B. South Wins “Central Bucks Sweep” for 2008

The Titans held on to a first-half, 14-6 lead and defended against a strong, late-4th-quarter drive by the Patriots to grab this year’s Central Bucks football honors.  The Titans and Patriots both finished the 2008 season with overall 4-6 records,  but C.B. South grabbed victories over both their Central Bucks rivals — C.B. East (4-6 overall, 3-4 SOL) and C.B. West (3-7 overall, 2-5 SOL) — completing a Central Bucks “sweep”.

We certainly enjoyed capturing memorable “Friday Night Football” moments for both the Titans and Patriots this year.  And we trust that both teams — along with their respective cheerleading and marching band organizations — have enjoyed our photography as much as we’ve enjoyed creating action-packed images for their families and friends to enjoy for years to come.  For families interested in creating your very own Personal Sports Yearbook containing our exclusive images, please contact the studio or call us at 215-340-7552.

We’ll post a complete set of images from Friday night’s East/South game in both the C.B. East Varsity Football 2008 Season and C.B. South Varsity Football 2008 Season photo galleries in a few days.  Meanwhile, enjoy a few “Halloween Night” image previews below:

Patriots Football: Attempted Game-Winning 2-Pt Conversion Comes Up Just Inches Short

Football can sometimes be a game of inches… and that’s exactly what the Patriots experienced last Friday night, when their attempt at a game-winning,  2-point conversion was thwarted just inches short of the goal-line in overtime against Souderton.  Losses don’t come along even the slightest bit more frustrating and painful than that — especially considering the Patriots had just tied the game 28-28 with less than 30 seconds remaining in regulation play and forced the game into overtime.

PIAA High School Football overtime now consists of each team having 4 plays starting at the 10-yard line to score.  Souderton took possession first… and scored first with a touchdown followed by one extra point — bringing the score to 35-28.  So when the Patriots also scored a touchdown during their overtime possession, a 2-point conversion seemed a gutsy but rewarding way to win the game outright if they could make it happen.  Unfortunately, the drive was stopped within inches of the goal-line — sealing a Souderton victory 35-34.  And the tough loss all but assures the Patriots they won’t be in contention for a District 1 playoff berth this season.

So the Patriots will head to Titan Stadium this Friday to wrap up their 2008 football season against C.B. South ( who also is not in playoff contention this year).  And as head-coach Tim Michael indicated to the team during their post-game huddle, the Patriots will be playing this Friday for “love of the game”.  No longer any pressure to make the playoffs — both teams simply playing for “love of the game”, which can be an ironic motivator in its own right.

Also at stake… since both teams have been victorious over C.B. West this season, Friday’s East/South match-up will determine this year’s top Central Bucks football team amoung the East/West/South rivalry.  C.B. East enters the contest with an overall 4-5 record this season, while C.B. South comes into the game one win shy at 3-6 overall.

Check the C.B. East Varsity Football 2008 Season photo gallery soon for a complete set of images highlighting last Friday evening’s football, cheerleading, marching band, and senior recognition festivities.  Meanwhile, enjoy these image previews below:

Titans Football: Varsity Photo Gallery Updated with Quakertown & Hatboro-Horsham Images

Images from the Quakertown game earlier this month as well as from the Homecoming game against Hatboro-Horsham on October 17th have been posted to the C.B. South Varsity Football 2008 Season photo gallery.

Before dim lighting conditions at Quakertown’s Alumni Field made photographing high-quality, existing-light action images on the field next to impossible, we were able to capture some great twilight images.  After sunset however, it was strictly an evening for photographing emotions on the sideline.  And the course of the game provided no lack of emotional intensity, as the Titans came within seconds of eclipsing the Panther’s 29-27 lead and final score of the game.

Two weeks later, the Titans endured a difficult 56-21 loss against Hatboro-Horsham.  Thankfully, Homecoming festivities at half-time gave Titans fans a solid dose of light-hearted moments that somehow seemed “far and few between” during the 48 minutes of regulation football.  So enjoy a few highlights below, and check the C.B. South Varsity Football 2008 Season photo gallery for MANY more images of the evening — including Homecoming festivities and performances by both C.B. South and Hatboro-Horsham marching bands.

We will rejoin the Titans AND Patriots this Friday, when the Titans host the Patriots at Titan Stadium for each of the varsity team’s last game this season.  Neither team is destined for District 1 playoffs this season, but each team will definitely be playing for Central Bucks “bragging rights” amidst an East/West/South rivalry.  Both C.B. East and C.B. South have won their respective football games against C.B. West.  So the winner of Friday night’s East/South game takes home the Central Bucks “crown” this season.

We’ve photographed games for C.B. East and C.B. South this season, so we send along our best wishes to both organizations for a great 2008 season-ending game of Friday-night football.

Patriots Football: JV Team Takes Decisive Victory Over Quakertown 21-6

We caught up with the Patriots JV football team on the road earlier this week at Quakertown’s Alumni Field — a field not particularly well-lit at all for photographing evening events, so we took advantage of an afternoon JV game there instead. (The week prior, we photographed the “CB South vs Quakertown” Friday evening varsity game under abysmal lighting conditions at Alumni Field, and we’re still post-processing those images so Titans fans can enjoy the image quality we typically post in our galleries.)

What can we say about JV football, other than the fact that we absolutely love photographing this sport in the DAYTIME!!! Honestly, if for no other reason, varsity teams should play at least ONE daytime game — perhaps TWO — each season so we can capture photos like these for varsity players and their families!

Please visit the C.B. East JV Football 2008 Season photo gallery for many more images from the Quakertown JV game to be posted very soon.  The next C.B. East JV football game that we plan to photograph will be in two weeks, when the Patriots host the Titans.  Naturally, we also plan to photograph the East/South varsity game on October 31st at C.B. South’s Titan Stadium.  And finally, on a related note for Titans fans… we have their JV football game vs. Pennridge on our schedule for Monday afternoon, October 27th.
