2017 WesternPAFootball.net Rankings, Week 6

Written by: on Thursday, October 5th, 2017

 

We told you last week there would be some changes after Friday nights blockbuster lineup, and there were. 

Starting with 6A, the anticipated battle between the Rams and Vikings never materialized as Jordan Crawford dominated with SEVEN first half scores. They get upstart Peters Twp. Another big 6A game is Penn Hills @ NA.

In 5A Penn Trafford holds tough taking down former #2 Gateway. We’ll shuffle the top 5 and add a few new teams to HM. Big game hunting in 5A has USC @ West A and Penn Trafford at Franklin Regional

4A saw only one change as New Castle bounced back in after a few weeks of recovery. They’re an Honorable mention for now, we’ll see how they do with the Lions. Cathedral Prep has a big test far away.

For 3A, it doesn’t get much bigger than the Bears at Quips. Huntingdon is rolling.

In 2A Wilmington travels to Greenville  for a POSSIBLE good game, and Ligonier Valley will head to Homer-Center for a key test. Ridge swaps spots with Kane by virtue of the thumping they put on Central. Bellwood-Antis is the new guy here.

And finally 1A. BG has that streak in tact, and Clairton drops after their first regulars season loss in years to Imani (who is back in the top 5 because of that win). Cal moves up one spot to 4th.
