Schuylkill League Week 8
« on: October 08, 2019, 05:50:20 PM »

Week 8
North Schuylkill @ Blue Mountain
Pottsville @ Jim Thorpe
Tamaqua @ Lehighton
Mahanoy Area @ Panther Valley
Shenandoah Valley @ Marian
Minersville @ Schuylkill Haven

NS and Pvlle will win. Tam, Mah, and Haven all will roll their opponents. Marian should get their first win or maybe SV will. Hard to believe these two once tough competitors are winless.

I agree. As recently as when they had Zach Barket they were an excellent team.

That team with Barket was super (ranked as high as state #2), and both Haven and Marian were good to really good just a few years ago.  Thinking 2016 mostly (the year SH lost 20 to 5 to SCA), although Haven's record was pretty decent even last year (even though they were miles away from the top Schuylkill/Anthracites).  Seems like a team's stock can really plummet quickly these days!

Week 8
North Schuylkill 39 Blue Mountain 7
Pottsville 32 Jim Thorpe 26
Tamaqua 54 Lehighton 6
Mahanoy Area 46 Panther Valley 13
Shenandoah Valley 8 Marian 9
Minersville 8 Schuylkill Haven 72

JT gave Pottsville some trouble. BM fumbled about 4-5 times and gave up an INT. Haven as usual rolled another of their 2nd division teams. Marian got their first win of the season against SV, just.

I was checking out some of those scores on Scorestream last night. Thorpe almost pulled off the unthinkable!

That Shendo-Marian score looks lke they were playing baseball.

Pottsville did an intentional safety to get the ball out of their area but JT drove and with 2 seconds to go Pvll got an INT.
The Shendo sage continues but I'm sure there was a beer, oops,  kool aid party in Hometown last night.

Yes, just like JT escaped a BM upset the week before with a minute to play. Pottsville surprised me in this one. I guess its good they won since BM has them next week and they would have been in an awfully nasty mood.

Roger that EagleCane. Hopefully they will take BM lightly and get another surprise. You just never know.
