Junior Brandon Fields rushed for a career-high 224 yards and a touchdown to lead Football to a 25-7 victory over Timber Creek in the Panthers' home opener. After struggling to find any rhythm on either side of the ball one week earlier in Georgia, DP (1-1) dominated the Wolves (0-2) with 425 yards of total offense while the defense allowed just 120. Junior quarterback Brenden Cyr completed 19 of his 25 passes to seven different receivers for 170 yards and a touchdown.

DP took their opening drive 70 yards in nine plays, capped by a nine-yard touchdown run by Brandon Fields, to take a 7-0 lead but Timber Creek responded immediately on the ensuing kickoff. An 88-yard return set the Wolves up at the DP one-yard line and two plays later, a one-yard touchdown run knotted the score at 7-7. But it was all Dr. Phillips moving forward. DP's first drive of the second quarter was a roller coaster as Brandon Fields ran for an 11-yard gain and Jacquez Jones pulled in a 12-yard pass from Canaan Mobley but a bad snap resulted in a 14-yard loss, forcing a punt. Fortunately for DP, Timber Creek fumbled the punt return and Jaquarri Powell pounced on the ball to put the offense back in business at the Timber Creek 28. Brandon Fields then broke off a 25-yard run, one of six double-digit gains for the junior, and Brenden Cyr dove in from a yard out for a 14-7 lead. On the Wolves' next possession, senior Cameron Williams recorded the first of his two sacks on the night, resulting in a six-yard loss, and four plays later, junior Stephen Dix slipped into the backfield and blocked the Timber Creek punt out of the end zone for a safety as DP took a 16-7 lead into the half.

Timber Creek opened up the second half with three straight completions and looked poised to strike at the DP 19 but two big penalties forced a punt that pinned the Panthers back at their own nine yard line. Brandon Fields carried seven times for 38 yards and Brenden Cyr found Kovsky Timothee for 16 yards, Jacquez Jones for ten, Trey Schyck for another 20, and capped the 17-play, 91-yard drive with a perfectly-thrown pass to Jacquez Jones in the left corner of the endzone for a 13-yard touchdown. With a 23-7 lead, the DP defense allowed just nine yards over Timber Creek's next three possessions and picked up another safety when a punt snap sailed out of the end zone for the 25-7 final margin. 

Brandon Fields' 224-yard performance tied him for fourth place with Dee Hart on the all-time single-game rushing list while the Panthers set a school record with 24 completed passes. Senior wide receiver Devon Buckhanon and junior Jacquez Jones each set career marks with seven and six catches, respectively, while Japerri Powell led the defense with 12 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Stephen Dix picked up ten tackles and a sack while Cameron Williams registered six tackles, including two sacks. Jaquarri Powell filled the stat sheet with four tackles, a sack, a forced fumble as well as a fumble recovery. DP will now focus on West Orange next Friday night in the Battle for the Ole Orange Crate.
