Former North Catholic soccer standout Dennis "Buff" Drumm has propelled
the Franklin Towne Charter soccer squad into the finals of the Public
League Championship next Tuesday courtesy of an Adam Stangler goal
midway through the second half last night. Stangler, the former North
Catholic prodigy and, yes, a member of THE Stangler soccer gang, looped
his effort from a wide right angle that shocked the Masterman back line.
Stangler's goal followed a spirited first half which saw the Towne
attack and test the Masterman defense.
Drumm, in his third year
at the Arsenal school, has created a winning environment culminating in
Franklin Towne's historic first ever regular season championship.
After a stellar career at North Catholic, nationally-ranked Textile (now
Philadelphia University), and Philadelphia Police Department favorites 5
and 1 club, Den coached at North Catholic winning several crowns. He
will lead his boys against a talented Northeast High team Tuesday
October 30 at Northeast 7 pm. We hope to see everyone there to support
Dennis and our Norphans, Adam Stangler, Chris McKendry, and Matt
