1. Bishop Guilfoyle 3-0 - @ Bishop Carroll
The Maruaders kept in rolling last week with a sound 49-0 victory over Central Cambria. The Red Devils were probably the best team they have seen to date, but clearly BG is on a different level right now. Sam McCloskey already has 10 touchdowns in the young season, and BG is outscoring their opponents 173-12 so far. The train should keep rolling against Bishop Carroll this week.
2. Portage 3-0 - Berlin
Three games - three blowouts. The Mustangs have been a force on the offensive end in the early part of the season, and they look like they are the real deal. Portage ran away from Windber last week 56-16, and that was all done in the first half essentially. It's rare to go into Windber Stadium and handle them the way Portage did. Things should be more difficult this week with Berlin coming to town, as it will be the two best teams in the WestPac squaring off against each other.
3. Bellwood-Antis 2-1 - Juniata Valley
Bellwood went into West Branch and took care of business against the over matched Warriors by a score of 49-0. The Blue Devils will look to stick to their winning ways with a down Juniata Valley team coming to town. Bellwood's biggest concern heading into this week will be not looking ahead to the Mt. Union game next weekend.
4. Blairsville 3-0 - @ Ligonier
Blairsville passed their first big test of the season by handing Purchase Line by a score of 27-6. The Bobcats have been really impressive on both sides of the ball early in the season, but particularly on the defensive end. They were able to keep a good Purchase Line team in check for most of the game. The Bobcats have a tough one with Ligonier this week on the road, it will be a good test for them.
5. Homer Center 3-0 - Marion Center
Homer Center has yet to have the drop-off so many were expecting. The Wildcats beat Northern Cambria by a score of 34-6, and by that have won their 11th straight Heritage Conference game. They should be able to keep the streak going with Marion Center this week.
D 5/6 AA
1. Tyrone 3-0 - @ Philipsburg-Osceola
Tyrone easily dispatched Huntingdon last week as the Golden Eagles moved to 3-0. Last week was the first easy game for Tyrone after surviving two nail biters in the first two weeks. Tyrone should roll again this week against 0-3 Philipsburg-Osceola.
2. Mt. Union 3-0 - @ Moshannon Valley
The high flying Trojans did it again last week with a 57-7 drubbing of Southern Huntingdon. They will now take their aerial assault to Houtzdale to take on Eric Sherkel and the Moshannon Valley Black Knights.
3. Central 2-1 - Penns Valley
Central storms into the rankings with a huge come from behind win over Clearfield on the road. The Drgaons rode the arm of Mike Mock for an impressive win away from home. Mock tossed four touchdowns and 179 yards in the win. They will welcome Penns Valley to town this week after their tough three game stretch to start the season.
4. Bedford 2-1 - @ Johnstown
Bedford ran into the Somerset machine last week, and matched them blow for blow in the first half, but the Golden Eagles ran away with it in the second half. Hard to penalize Bedford too much for losing to Somerset, but the Bison have a huge showdown with Johnstown next week, and we will find out a lot about this team.
5. Forest Hills 2-1 - @ Central Cambria
The Rangers were without all-everything quarterback Joe Donoughe last week, but the green and gold managed to win 24-0 over Penn Cambria. The offense was carried by the speedy Shareef Blough as he torched the Panthers for 233 yards, including a 98 yard touchdown run. The game Friday night in Ebensburg will be a difficult one going up against a desperate Central Cambria team.
D 5-6-9 AAA
1. Somerset 3-0 - Richland
Somerset has probably been the most impressive local team to date. The Golden Eagles have a strong offense filled with play-makers, and a defense that has been down right nasty. Somerset had a tough one with Bedford for a half, but they were able to break it open and run away with it late. They will host Richland this week, and after last year's instant classic, you know Somerset will want to get some revenge.
2. Johnstown 3-0 - Bedford
Johnstown has already matched their win total from last season with a quick 3-0 start. The Trojans easily handled cross-town rivals McCort, but will see a tough opponent this week when Bedford comes to Trojan Stadium.
3. University Prep 2-0 - @ Perry
The lone City League team takes this spot with a 2-0 record right now. They will play Perry this weekend.
