Pictured above: Harrisburg Cougars
1. Bishop McDevitt (3-0, Last:1) – Defeated #2 Cumberland Valley. Next: Mechanicsburg. One thing is for certain, teams don’t score much on the Crusaders in the second half. The Crusaders defeated Cumberland Valley 27-7. They get the best out of every opponent and that will be the case this week when they travel to play Mechanicsburg.
2. Cumberland Valley (2-1, Last: 2) – Lost to #1 Bishop McDevitt. Next: # Central Dauphin East. The Eagles lost 27-7 to Bishop McDevitt. They start their Commonwealth Division schedule with what will be a big rumble against Central Dauphin East at home.
3. Central Dauphin East (2-1, Last: 3)- Lost to Coatesville. Next: Cumberland Valley.
4. Central Dauphin (2-1, Last: 4) – Defeated South Western. Next: #6 Chambersburg. Central Dauphin won what was probably a closer than expected game against South Western by a score of 17-14. They will face another tough game at home against Chambersburg this Friday.
5. Cedar Cliff (3-0, Last:5) – Defeated Susquenita. Next: Hershey
6. Chambersburg (3-0, Last: 6) – Defeated Gettysburg. Next: #4 Central Dauphin. The Trojans pitched a shut-out against Gettysburg on Friday night, winning 27-0.
7. Harrisburg (1-2, Last: 7) – Defeated William Penn (York). Next: State College
8. Susquehanna Township (2-1, Last: 8) – Defeated Greencastle-Antrim 40-9. Next: Palmyra
9. Lower Dauphin (3-0)- Defeated Elizabethtown 48-0. Next: Red Land
10. Steelton-Highspire (3-0, Last: 10). Defeated Pius X 21-14. Next: Trinity
HONORABLE MENTION: Mifflin County (3-0), Hershey (3-0), Mechanicsburg (3-0), State College (1-2)
There are a good number of teams that deserve Honorable mention. State College notoriously starts out the season slow due to it’s non-conference schedule which is usually competitive. Central Dauphin East gets it’s first test in Mid-Penn Commonwealth action away at Cumberland Valley this Friday night. Mechanicsburg is on the outskirts of the top ten and they have their “Super Bowl” of sorts against Bishop McDevitt this weekend. State College and Harrisburg compete for the best game of the week. Steel-High will really see where they are at as they visit Trinity in what should be a high-scoring affair.
