Pekin defeats Albia

Aug 21, 2017

Many area football teams spent Friday practicing for the upcoming season, but for Pekin, warmups were over. The Panthers hosted Albia in one of the first meaningful football games to be played in the state. Pekin triumphed 41-7.

The Panthers learned they would need to schedule an early contest because one of their opponents on the schedule dropped out. Danville, which forfeited much of last season due to low numbers, did not have enough students sign up for football, and thus canceled its season.
