2019 Super Six – Week 4

Here are the rankings afte Week 4 presented by Al’s Quick Stop:

BIG SCHOOL

  1. Dallas Mountaineers (4-0), defeated Pittston Area 56-15 (Last Week: 1)
    Dallas is averaging 47 points a game and hasn’t been challenged despite fallin behind 7-0 last Friday. The real challenges will come the second half of the schedule when they face Wilkes-Barre, Valley View and Berwick. For now, it’s working on things and staying healthy.
    Next up: at Wyoming Valley West (1-3)
  2. Valley View Cougars (4-0), defeated Scranton Prep 42-19 (Last Week: 2)
    The Cougars offense is running on all cylinders as they won Saturday without punting. Some turnovers kept Prep in the game, but once again there was no answer for Janassah Boone. Credit to Zach Manchak who quietly went over the 100 yard mark again. He had big shoes to fill and has done a good job.
    Next up: at Honesdale (0-4)
  3. Delaware Valley Warriors (3-1) defeated Wilkes-Barre 54-20 (Last Week: 3)
    DV keeps rolling through District 2 competition and now they will have another chance to avenge a loss from last year. They did that a couple weeks ago beating Paupack 70-0. No doubt the Warriors are making a statement and the if anyone can challenge them the remainder of the year until they get out of the district.
    Next up: vs North Pocono (2-2)
  4. Berwick Bulldogs (4-0) defeated Wyoming Valley West 42-0 (Last Week: 4)
    Berwick had a great offensive day beating up on a rival and they will still need to grow in that area. A strong showing this week will lead them into a battle with Valley View in Week 6. The defense led by Teagan Wilk, who tied the school record for interceptions, is one of the best in the district.
    Next up: vs Selinsgrove (2-2)
  5. Williamsport Millionaires (3-1) defeated Hazleton Area 13-7 (Last Week: 5)
    It’s strange watching the Millionaires win low scoring games considering how their offense was so dominating the past several season. But now it’s Williamsport’s defense that controls games and has them off to a great start in 2019. The offense still needs work, but they should be able to have some success over the next couple weeks.
    Next up: vs Crestwood (2-2)
  6. Wilkes-Barre Wolfpack (2-2), lost to Delaware Valley 54-20 (Last Week: NR)
    No shame in losing to DV this past week. The Wolfpack overall are playing good football and have many weapons on the offensive side of the ball. The real tests will be coming as they still have to play the top three Big School team in the WVC.
    Next up: at Hazleton Area (1-3)

SMALL SCHOOL

  1. Wyoming Area Warriors (4-0), defeated Nanticoke 48-7 (Last Week: 1)
    The toughest part when you are a dominating team is injuries can derail you. The Warriors had a big blow losing two-way starter Corey Mruk. Wyoming Area has enough depth to continue their march toward league and district titles. Good teams find a way to overcome these bumps in the road.
    Next up: vs Tunkhannock (3-1)
  2. Old Forge Blue Devils (4-0), defeated Holy Redeemer 49-0 (Last Week: 2)
    The schedule maker has been unkind to the Devils who have not been challenged through four weeks and now will get a week off because Holy Cross folded their team. The second half of the season is better as they only face one team with a losing record and four teams who are serious district title contenders in their classifications.
    Next up: Bye
  3. Western Wayne Wildcats (4-0), defeated Montrose 55-13 (Last Week: 3)
    The Wildcats are another team that will be challenged more in the second half of the season. They have been dominant in all four games and have shown some offensive diversity the last couple weeks. The big question will be their defense and how they play against better offensive competition.
    Next up: at Hanover Area (1-3)
  4. Scranton Prep Cavaliers (2-2), lost to Valley View 42-19 (Last Week: 4)
    The Cavaliers defense had problems this past Saturday, but the offense showed some ability to the run the ball which has been lacking. Carter Odell continues to be their big playmaker on offense and Prep just needs to keep working on the offense to give them a chance to defend their district title.
    Next up: at West Scranton (1-3)
  5. Lake-Lehman Black Knights (3-1), defeated Carbondale Area 48-14 (Last Week: 5)
    A three-game winning streak for the Knights and now they play the two teams that have won the division the last two seasons. This will be a test of where Lehman stands in the WVC Small School hiearchy and Class 3A.
    Next up: vs Northwest Area (2-1)
  6. Mid Valley Spartans (2-1), defeated Susquehanna 27-7 (Last Week: NR)
    The Spartans had to wait a week to start their first winning streak in awhile, but had a good time celebrating their 50th season of Mid Valley football. They already defeated one of the LFC Small School giants and get another shot at one at Spartan Stadium on Friday.
    Next up: vs Lakeland (2-2)
