D 5/6 A
1. Bishop Guilfoyle 2-0 Next Game: Central Cambria
Bishop Guilfoyle kept things rolling last week with a 62-0 win over Westmont. It was the second consecutive week where the Marauders went for 62 points, and the machine just keeps rolling. The Marauders should see their toughest game yet with a hungry and desperate 0-2 Central Cambria team coming to town.
2. Portage 2-0 Next Game: @ Windber
Portage had another easy one with a road win in Boswell over North Star. The Mustangs look strong early on, and it will be interesting to see them when they get tested, and that could happen this week. This is not the best Windber team, but it will still be the best team they have seen to date.
3. Bellwood-Antis 1-1 Next Game: @ West Branch
Bellwood-Antis had a convincing 48-29 win against Moshannon Valley last week, and the Blue Devils really might be better than a lot of people were anticipating. They have a road test with West Branch this week, and Bellwood should be moving to 2-1.
4. Blairsville 2-0 Next Game: Purchase Line
Blairsville has really looked good in their role as favorites in the Heritage Conference by jumping out to a 2-0 start with relative ease. They should be tested this week by Grant Syster and Purchase Line, but with a healthy Deion Robinson, the Bobcats should be able to pull it out over the Dragons.
5. Homer Center 2-0 Next Game: Northern Cambria
Homer Center remains in the top 5, as the defending champions continue their winning ways in the Heritage Conference. The Wildcats have a big one with a solid Northern Cambria team this week. The Heritage is a tough league this year, and you need to be ready each and every week. So far so good for HC.
D 5/6 AA
1. Tyrone 2-0 Next Game: Huntingdon
Tyrone has survived two dog fights with two of their biggest rivals, Bellwood and Central, and I don't think we need to examine that any further. Tyrone is going to be battle tested moving forward by winning these games. Huntingdon should be a little easier this week than their first two.
2. Mt. Union 2-0 Next Game: Southern Huntingdon
Mt. Union has an explosive offense, and they will be the favorites in their eight remaining regular season games, with only two or three of them being serious threats. I decided to jump them from 4 to 2 because there is a real chance they can run the table, and they are that good.
3. Bedford 2-0 Next Game: Somerset
Bedford remains in the three spot after having survived a wild one with Central Cambria last week 47-36. The Bison have a strong offense and it well be tested going up against Somerset's defense this week.
4. Forest Hills 1-1 Next Game: Penn Cambria
Forest Hills did not rise to the occasion against Somerset, and fell 43-12 on their own home field, something you do not see that often. I still believe the Rangers are a good team, but a lot of that will depend on the health of Joe Donoughe. Penn Cambria is a winnable game this week, and the Rangers should get back on track.
5. Juniata 2-0 Next Game: @ Pine Grove
Who? The Juniata High Indians are 2-0 to start the year, and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt right now. They play a mostly Eastern PA schedule, so it truly is hard to grasp what kind of team this is, but if they keep winning they should find their way into the playoffs. There are 8 spots for only 14 teams. .
D 5-6-9 AAA
1.Somerset 2-0 Next Game: @ Bedford
Somerset had their first big test of the year at Forest Hills, and they passed with flying colors. The Golden Eagles look like a team on a mission, and they will be hard for anyone to slow down this season. Bedford should give them a good game.
2. Johnstown 2-0 Next Game: @ Bishop McCort
Johnstown is off to a great start, but suffered a costly win at Bishop Carroll last week. The Trojans sustained some serious injuries in the game, and it could hurt them in the long run. They have a big one this week with crosstown arch rivals, Bishop McCort.
3. Clearfield 1-1 Next Game: Central
Clearfield got into the win column with a 31-0 win over Penns Valley in week two. The Bison have talent, but a lot of it is unproven. They have a big game this week with 1-1 Central.
