Let the great debate begin
While our fearless political leaders face off in Denver this week local high school football fans have plenty of good reason to debate which teams will rise to the top as the 2012 season continues. As the sixth week of the season approaches, Ridley, Downingtown East, Central Bucks South, Plymouth-Whitemarsh and West Chester Rustin are the top five teams in playoff points for District One AAAA.
If you are taking a pulse of the D-1 AAA playoff race West Chester Henderson, Pottsgrove, Springfield, Academy Park, Interboro and Sun Valley lead the way. These rankings are sure to change as the next four weeks will determine the final standings.
Week five predictions went ok as this future teller went 3-2 as Archbishop Wood, Central Bucks South and Coatesville all won as predicted while Springfield (Delco) surprised Garnet Valley and Penncrest stole the Media Bowl from Strath Haven to account for the two near misses last week.
The last six years the prognostication record stands at 282-110 while going 15-5 for the 2012 season.
This sixth week of the season offers another great set of games for local fans to check out.
In the Philadelphia Catholic League AAAA powerhouse St Joseph’s Prep will host equally talented AAA division Archbishop Wood. The reigning AAA Pa State champion Vikings were led by running back Andrew Guckin last week as he accounted for 142 total yards and three TD runs for 38-14 win over a very good Cardinal O’Hara eleven. They will face a more difficult task this weekend when they take on the undefeated St Joe Hawks. Coach Gabe Infante directed his high powered offensive attack to a 37-7 win over Roman Catholic last Saturday afternoon. The Hawks will fly high again this weekend with a close but impressive win. The game can be seen live on The Comcast Network Channel 8 and 856 HD on Friday night at 7:30 PM
St. Joseph’s Prep 38 Archbishop Wood 30
The rest of this week’s fearless forecast:
Ridley 34 Garnet Valley 19
West Chester Rustin 31 Great Valley 13
Central Bucks South 28 North Penn 24
Interboro 34 Glen Mills 18
