MOUNT CARMEL — When your team is favored heavily, you generally don’t want to let the other team hang around for long. Otherwise, they can start to have faith in an upset.

Mount Carmel made sure it didn’t let North Penn Mansfield hang around for very long in Friday night’s District 4 Class 2A playoff opener. After turning the ball over on downs in the red zone on its first possession, the Red Tornadoes proceeded to score on nine of its next 10 possessions, including its next four drives in the first quarter, as the Red Tornadoes used quick scoring drives to quickly pull away from the Panthers and advance to next week’s district semifinal with a 60-20 win. The Red Tornadoes will take on Hughesville at home next week.
