2017 WesternPAFootball.net Rankings: Week 9

Written by: on Thursday, October 26th, 2017

 

Well that was a week eh? Upsets, top teams battling……let’s get right into this as there are some monster games this week.

In 6A State College took a tough one to nationally ranked Harrisburg. This class is LOADED with top games, #2 Bethel Park/Mt Lebo, #1 Pine-Richland/#4NA and Penn Hills/#3Central Catholic….easy to say we’ll see more movement next week.That’s six in our top ten hitting each other!

Speaking of big games, 5A #1 Penn Trafford travels to #5 McKeesport. #3 Gateway goes to Franklin Regional..Conneaut hosts Meadville…6 more ranked teams battling.

Theres a theme this week, that’s a Rankings Battle Royale! 4A has #2 South Fayette/Montour. This is a great matchup!

For 3A, things are a little easier for our ranked teams. No monster matches, but you never know. The biggest news here is #2 Huntingdon going down to Central, who returns to the rankings.

Thanks to the return of the Appalahian Bowl, we get a 2A matchup that will tell us a lot about two teams heading into the playoffs. HM Berlin will play #3 Ligonier for that title and this should be a good one. The other big one here is the ICC title game, the schedule Gods were good and this last regular season conference game between Northern Bedford and Bellwood-Antis shouldn’t disappoint!

Finally, in 1A Clairton is looking to return to playoff form as they get #2 Jeannette. Portage and Homer-Center also highlight this class.

    Huntingdon loses to a three loss team and stays in the top 5 over Forest Hills whose only defeat all year is a three point barnburner to the team with the longest winning streak in the state who just humiliated Greater Johnstown your 5th ranked AAAA school on GJ’s own field. Not sure how that works?
