Moore's first TD, after he found his way past La Salle's last line of defense, was a bobbling catch. On the second, the 6-foot, 185-pounder separated himself from two defenders in the back of the end zone and made a leaping grab.
Imhotep is 2-0, having opened the season with a 49-21 romp over Cardinal Mooney (Ohio). That spells major trouble for coming Public League AA foes.
Against the Explorers, who impressed in a Week 1 romp over North Penn, the Panthers intercepted junior Kyle Shurmur three times and recovered two fumbles.
"You don't block and tackle, you're not going to beat anybody," said La Salle coach Drew Gordon, whose squad was without star tight end and linebacker Zaire Franklin (injured finger).
The Panthers, who last season went 14-1 and advanced to the state semifinals, netted 177 yards on the ground.
A gigantic offensive line included center Gordon Thomas (6-0, 305), guards John Carlo-Valentine (6-4, 285) and Aaron Ruff (6-5, 280), and tackles Taleem Muhammad (6-6, 300) and Antoine Williams (6-3, 280).
Late in the second quarter of a 14-14 tie, a controversial call - officials ruled that Shurmur had fumbled before crossing the goal line - shifted the momentum. With two TDs in the last 32 seconds, Imhotep led, 26-14, at halftime.
Imhotep's Andre Dreuitt-Parks completed 7 of 12 throws for 215 yards and three scores; Shurmur hit on 20 of 38 for 385 yards and three TDs.
