Dashaun Harris and Duce Chestnut scored on touchdown runs at the home of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles to lead Camden to the Central Jersey Group 2 championship game. The game resumed in Philadelphia with 4:58 remaining in the third quarter and Camden leading 6-0. The Panthers were able to put together two scoring drives on Wednesday to earn a road trip to Cedar Creek in the title game on Saturday, November 30. The Philadelphia Eagles hosted the resumption of this playoff game. Head coach Doug Pederson led Eagles players including Carson Wentz, Zach Ertz, Brandon Graham, Malcolm Jenkins, and Jason Peters to meet with both teams. A moment of silence took place for Micah Tennant, the 10-year old who was shot last Friday night at the game and died earlier on Wednesday.
