Featured Game of the Year - Game 11 against Methacton. There is a well remembered story about this game.
Per Tim Ford and Dan Santhouse, both seniors on the 1985 squad, "In the Methacton game from ’85, it was our last game and capping off an 8-3 season, was the post-game mudslide that Dan talks about in his interview. The memory of the game has faded a bit but we all still remember the mudslide! The game had to be played on a Monday afternoon because we got rained out on Saturday afternoon. It poured all day Saturday and the field was still wet and there was an adjacent soccer field near where we had to get the buses after the game. It was at the base of a hill and there was a huge mud puddle that formed from all the rain on the sideline of that soccer field. The team and the cheerleaders all ended up in that mud puddle and it was great way to enjoy our last game together and celebrate the best season Neshaminy Football had experienced in several seasons!"
