Harrison survived a severe scare Friday night against Holy Family. That scare could be blessing for a team that will face a massive challenge in the playoffs next week.

The No. 5 seed Panthers escaped with a 34-28 win, barely surviving a spirited rally by the No. 12 Tigers in the second half in the first round of 3A football playoffs at Harrison’s field.

Tough times await. The Panthers will face either the defending 3A state champ (Palmer Ridge) or the defending 4A champ (Pueblo South) in the next round of the playoffs.
