Here are the rankings after Week  11 presented by Gaughan Auto Store:

BIG SCHOOL

  1. Valley View Cougars (10-1), defeated Crestwood 38-7 (Last week: 1)
    The Cougars bounced back following their only loss of the season and they did it using all three phases of the game. Their first three touchdowns were on offense, defense and special teams. They beat the Comets by the same score they beat them in the regular season.
    Next up: vs. Berwick (7-4)  (Listen on NPF)
  2. Delaware Valley Warriors (8-3), defeated Scranton (Last week: 2)
    Make it eight straight for the Warriors and now they will get the chance to defend their district title in a rematch from the regular season. Delaware Valley is pounding the football with the running game but last time they played Hazleton in Week 6 they did the same, but only scored 14 points.
    Next up: vs. Hazleton Area (8-3) (First meeting: DV 14-9) (Listen on WYNY)
  3. North Pocono Trojans (9-2), defeated Honesdale 27-0 (Last week: 3)
    After a slow start, North Pocono pulled away from Honesdale in the second half to bounce back from their loss last week. Trojans will hit the road with a chance to play their way into the district title game.
    Next up: at Dallas (8-2) (Watch on WQMY)
  4. Hazleton Area Cougars (8-3), defeated Wilkes-Barre 24-3 (Last week: 4)
    The Cougars have been playing great football and haven’t lost since they last played Delaware Valley, this week’s opponent. Five straight and an improved defense and offensive line will challenge the Warriors.
    Next up: at Delaware Valley (8-3) (First Meeting: DV 14-9)
  5. Dallas Mountaineers (8-2), defeated Pittston Area 35-12 (Last week: 5)
    Dallas earned a home game in the Class 4A semifinals and that could help them. Should be a good one as both teams seem about even.
    Next up: vs. North Pocono (9-2) (Watch on WQMY)
  6. Berwick Bulldogs (7-4), defeated Wallenpaupack 37-17 (Last week: 6)
    Dawgs head to the semifinals to play the top seed. Valley View has been a pain for Berwick beating them four times in the last three seasons including two playoff games.
    Next up: at Valley View (10-1) (Listen on NPF)







SMALL SCHOOL

  1. Scranton Prep Cavaliers (10-0), bye (Last week: 1)
    Cavaliers got a bye week after Nanticoke decided they didn’t want to play them. Coaches also welcome a week off at the end of  year to rest players and heal injuries so Prep should be ready to try to get back the district title which has eluded them the last two seasons.
    Next up: vs. Mid Valley (9-2) (Listen on NPF)
  2. Wyoming Area Warriors (10-1), defeated Carbondale Area 55-13 (Last week: 2)

    Next up: vs. Lakeland (First Meeting: WA 19-14) (Watch on WAFA)
  3. Old Forge Blue Devils (9-0), bye (Last week: 3)
    Blue Devils got a week off and it was the third Friday this year, they didn’t have to play a game. Old Forge begins their road to Hershey against a charter school from Philly.
    Next up: vs. Belmont Charter (8-1)(Listen on NPF)
  4. Lakeland Chiefs (10-1), defeated Lake-Lehman 44-7 (Last week: 4)
    Lakeland will have a chance to avenge their only loss of the season and it’s definitely a game that could go either way.
    Next up: at Wyoming Area (10-1) (First Meeting: WA 19-14) (Watch on WAFA)
  5. Mid Valley Spartans (9-2), defeated Western Wayne 28-27(Last week: 5)
    Mid Valley escaped with a win and now will face their toughest test of 2021. No doubt the Spartans are a huge underdog and will find out where they stand in the Class 3A hierarchy.
    Next up: at Scranton Prep (9-0) (Listen on NPF)
  6. Lackawanna Trail Lions (7-3), defeated Riverside 41-19 (Last week: 6)
