2019 Super Six – Week 5

Here are the rankings after Week 5 presented by Al’s Quick Stop:

BIG SCHOOL

  1. Dallas Mountaineers (5-0), defeated Wyoming Valley West 49-0 (Last Week: 1)
    Nobody has challenged the Mounts throughout the first half of the season. The second half should be a little bit different. First half MVP: Lenny Kelley
    Next up: at Wilkes-Barre (3-2)
  2. Valley View Cougars (5-0), defeated Honesdale 49-21 (Last Week: 2)
    Valley View scored two touchdowns in :40 seconds on Friday on their way to a 49-0 halftime lead. They haven’t been challenged much either. Should be an interesting stretch where the Cougars could play three straight unbeatens. First half MVP: Janaasah Boone
    Next up: vs Berwick (5-0)
  3. Delaware Valley Warriors (4-1) defeated North Pocono 48-13 (Last Week: 3)
    The Warriors actually trailed last week before running off 48 straight points. DV starts playing the WVC and LFC big schools, but will they be challenged? First half MVP: Josh Balcarcel
    Next up: at Hazleton Area (1-4)
  4. Berwick Bulldogs (5-0) defeated Selinsgrove 23-7 (Last Week: 4)
    Berwick rallied to win and now they play four teams with winning records the second half of the season including the two other unbeatens from Class 4A. First half MVP: Teagan Wilk
    Next up: at Valley View (5-0)
  5. Wilkes-Barre Wolfpack (3-2), defeated Hazleton Area 34-20 (Last Week: 6)
    The Pack have a chance to earn a home playoff game if they can stay ahead of Williamsport. They play an exciting style of football. First half MVP: Rafael McCoy
    Next up: vs Dallas (5-0)
  6. Crestwood Comets (3-2) defeated Williamsport 15-14 (Last Week: NR)
    The Comets are the cardiac kids of 2019 winning by a single point for the second time this season. It’s a good mix of seniors and underclassmen for first-year coach Ryan Archangeli. First half MVP: Ryan Petrosky
    Next up: at Nanticoke (1-4)

SMALL SCHOOL

  1. Wyoming Area Warriors (5-0), defeated Tunkhannock 49-10 (Last Week: 1)
    The addition of Southern Columbia to the schedule is interesting. Wonder of the Warriors realize what they got themselves into. Shouldn’t affect their playoff berth, but seeding could be affected. First half MVP: Dominic DeLuca
    Next up: at Lake-Lehman (4-1)
  2. Old Forge Blue Devils (4-0), Off last week (Last Week: 2)
    The Devils could finally be challenged this week. These two teams have had some nice battles over the years and have been the two best small school programs over the past several decades. First half MVP: Dante Lucarelli
    Next up: vs Dunmore (3-2)
  3. Western Wayne Wildcats (5-0), defeated Hanover Area 48-0 (Last Week: 3)
    It’s been a Wild ride for the ‘Cats, but the next five games are against programs with a ton of championships and lots of tradtion. Western Wayne trying to creat their own tradition. First half MVP: Zane Janiszewski
    Next up: at Lakeland (3-2)
  4. Scranton Prep Cavaliers (3-2), defeated West Scranton 37-34 (Last Week: 4)
    Prep’s offense has been struggling, but woke up last Friday. Cavs still will be a factor in Class 3A. First half MVP: Carter Odell
    Next up: at North Pocono (2-3)
  5. Lake-Lehman Black Knights (4-1), defeated Northwest Area 37-13 (Last Week: 5)
    Lehman will get it’s stiffest test of the year when they take on the No. 1 team. Black Knights have played better every week. First half MVP: Ethan Adams
    Next up: vs Wyoming Area (5-0)
  6. Lakeland Chiefs (3-2), defeated Mid Valley 14-12 (Last Week: NR)
    The Chiefs are banged up, but managed a huge division win on the road. They still need to get healthy to compete for a Class 3A title. First half MVP: Gionvanni Spataro.
    Next up: vs Western Wayne (5-0)
