1950 Season Recap

The newly christened Neshaminy High School opens for business in 1950. Merging with Lower Southampton Township, the school district now spans from the city of Philadelphia in the west to Falls Township in the east. Bensalem and Bristol Townships are to the south and the also newly named Council Rock school district is to the north. In another important first that year, Neshaminy and Pennsbury play under those “names” for the first time. The Falcons take the historic contest, 12-6, as they best an uneven ‘Skins group that will finish 5-5.
