2019 Super Six – Week 3
Here are the rankings afte Week 3 presented by Al’s Quick Stop:
- Dallas Mountaineers (3-0), defeated Hazleton Area 41-13 (Last Week: 1)
The Mounts continue to roll through the WVC and probably won’t play a team with a .500 record until Week 6. Lenny Kelley continues to roll with 263 rushing yards and four touchdowns. The offensive line has been dominant early in the season.
Next up: vs Pittston Area (1-2)
- Valley View Cougars (3-0), defeated West Scranton 37-6 (Last Week: 2)
Janassah Boone makes it look easy and the Cougars have their starters out by the third quarter again. The team has been able to play a lot of younger players the past three seasons in these blowout wins and it has paid dividends with depth.
Next up: at Scranton Prep (2-1)
- Delaware Valley Warriors (2-1) defeated Wallenpaupack 70-0 (Last Week: 4)
The Warriors were our preseason No. 1 and now you can see why. They have scored 131 points the last two games against two District 2 opponents. The offense was a question mark after the opener, but not anymore.
Next up: at Wilkes-Barre (2-1)
- Berwick Bulldogs (3-0) defeated Williamsport 17-10 (Last Week: 3)
The Dawgs offense continues to be questionable as they slipped by an improved Williamsport team to remain unbeaten. But can they score points in the big games this season? It was an issue last season so it has to be considered an issue again in 2019.
Next up: vs Wyoming Valley West (1-2)
- Williamsport Millionaires (2-1) Lost to Berwick 17-10 (Last Week: 5)
It was a great effort by Williamsport to almost escape Crispin Field with a win. The Millionaires have been a surprise so far in 2019 and the defense has stood out led by defensive lineman Nassir Jones.
Next up: vs Hazleton Area (1-2)
- Crestwood Comets (2-1), defeated Wyoming Valley West 35-8 (Last Week: NR)
The Comets were impressive this past week both running the ball and defensively. They look like a playoff team this season but have to keep getting better if they want to challenge the top tier teams in Class 4A.
Next up: at Pottsville (2-1)
- Wyoming Area Warriors (3-0), defeated Northwest 34-3 (Last Week: 1)
It was a slow start for the Warriors but they took care of business in Shickshinny. Corey Mruk took over scoring three touchdowns and the defense continued to be dominant as they have now gone back-to-back weeks without giving up a touchdown.
Next up: at Nanticoke (0-3)
- Old Forge Blue Devils (3-0), defeated Susquehanna 47-14 (Last Week: 2)
The Blue Devils have not been challenged yet this season, and seem to have that championship look we have seen from them in the past. QB Dante Lucarelli has led an offense that has averaged 47 points through the first three games.
Next up: vs Holy Redeemer (0-2)
- Western Wayne Wildcats (3-0), defeated Honesdale 60-21 (Last Week: 3)
We saw another dimension to the Wildcats with QB Matt Valenda making plays in the passing game and WR/KR Caleb Brungard making big plays. Western Wayne is making it look easy the first three weeks and have a good chance to finish the first half of the season unbeaten.
Next up: vs Montrose (0-2)
- Scranton Prep Cavaliers (2-1), defeated Abington Heights 17-10 (Last Week: 4)
Prep survived The Pit, but there will be a lot of challanges moving forward. If they are going to get back to the championship game, the offense will have to evolve as they have been held to 17 points over the past two games.
Next up: vs Valley View (3-0)
- Lake-Lehman Black Knights (2-1), defeated Hanover Area 36-9 (Last Week: 6)
No letdown after the big win over Lakeland. Ryan Eiden has become a major offensive weapon and the Black Knights are more balanced than they have been in years. They opening loss to Western Wayne looks like it was months ago as Lehman is playing confident.
Next up: vs Carbondale Area (0-3)
- Lakeland Chiefs (2-1), defeated Riverside 29-7 (Last Week: NR)
It didn’t take long for the Chiefs to get back in the rankings. The defense smothered the high-flying Riverside offense and C.J. Dippre made plays when he needed to. The loss to Lake-Lehman might have been a wakeup call for Lakeland.
Next up: at West Scranton (3-0)
