The Derby Panthers are off to a perfect start in their 6A title defense, both wins coming on the road with very little problem. On Friday, it was a chance to make a stake in the AVCTL with a 49-0 win over Salina Central.
The Panther offense has yet to find a counterpart able to slow it down. Quarterback Grant Adler found Cavion Walker for a long touchdown pass for the first score of the game.

The defense for the Panther pitched a shutout on the night, despite facing a goal to go situation.
Derby returns home against Newton next week while Salina Central plays for the Mayor's Cup against Salina South.
