Pennridge and Quakertown will meet for the second time this season, after the Route 309 neighbors squared off in the first round of the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA football playoffs.
The Rams, seeking payback for a 14-10 loss to the Panthers, will return to newly refurbished Alumni Field in the continuation of a storied Thanksgiving Day rivalry.
On Nov. 7, Alec Vera's 20-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Tyler Kishbaugh was the difference.
Pennridge, 7-4 and ranked No. 21 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, leads the all-time series by 53-27-5. No. 17 Quakertown (10-2) last won in 2008, by 34-29.
