Penn Manor Comets (D3 4A 7-0) @ Warwick Warriors (D3 4A 5-2)
The Comets are coming off a 1 – Point Victory over the Manheim Twp. Blue Streaks (4-3). Despite their

on the other hand have only had one game tighter than 21-Points and that was a 5-Point Victory over
(3A -5-2) Manheim Central.
Garden Spot Spartans (D3 3A 5-2) @ Cocalico Eagles (D3 3A 6-1)
The Spartans have dispatched every (3A) Team on their schedule with ease. Their 2 loses being to the
Hempfield Black Knights (4A 5-2) and the Elizabethtown Bears (4A 5-2). The Eagles defeated the same
(4A 5-2) Bears by 1-Point this past week.
Elizabethtown Bears (D3 4A 5-2) @ Manheim Central Barons (D3 3A 5-2)
The Bears are coming off a 1-Point lose at home to the Cocalico Eagles (3A 6-1). The Barons have caught
fire with 4 wins in a row after two earlier season setbacks : Week 2 (L 15-20) at (4A 7-0) Wilson West
Lawn and Week 3 (L 8-21) at home to (2A 6-1) Lancaster Catholic.
4orthern Polar Bears (D3 3A 5-2) @ Greencastle-Antrim Blue Devils (D3 3A 7-0)
The Polar Bears are in the middle of a very good group of District 3 (3A) Teams. Their 2 loses :
Mechanicsburg (3A 7-0) by 2 points and at Hershey (3A 3-4) by 8 points. The Blue Devils silenced any
remaining detractors with a solid Week 7 Win over the Indians from Susquehanna Twp.
Kennard-Dale Rams (D3 3A 4-3) @ West York Bulldogs (D3 3A 6-1) 2A
The Ram’s Record is deceiving ; Week 1 lose to (4A) Spring Grove , 5-Point lose to the Solanco Muhls,
and a 7-Point lose at (4A 5-2) Dallastown. The Bulldogs have a couple notches in their collar : (28-3) Win

against the Canners from Biglerville (2A 5-2).
Middletown Blue Raiders (D3 2A 5 -2) @ Camp Hill Lions (D3 1A 6-1)

Trinity Team above.
Wyomissing Spartans (D3 2A 6-1) @ Holy 4ame Blue Jays (D3 1A 6-1)

lot of attention so far this season. Holy Name’s only lose was to the Scouts from Conrad Weiser (3A 5-2).
Steelton-Highspire Rollers (D3 1A 7-0) @ Trinity Shamrocks (D3 2A 6-1)

coming off a Victory over the same Middletown Team as above. Trinity’s only set-back this was to
