    “Crestwood has posted a five-game winning streak, but the Comets’ five opponents defeated during said streak own a combined record of 6-24. The Comets have faced only one opponent with a record better than .500- that was Berwick in Week 1, and the Bulldogs claimed a 27-point victory.” – Josh Funk
