Here are the rankings after Week 6  powered by Gaughan Auto Store:



  1. Dallas Mountaineers (6-0), defeated Hazleton Area 42-14 (Last week: 1)
    The Mounts keep cruising although the schedule has been light, not to the fault of Dallas. They only play one more team with a winning record and because of the strength of schedule, they have fallen to the No. 3 seed in Class 4A.
    Next up: vs. Berwick (2-4) (Listen on NPF) – Friday
  2. Valley View Cougars (6-0), defeated Abington Heights 35-14 (Last week: 2)
    The Cougars found themselves with a halftime deficit, but dominated the second half on both sides of the ball with 28 unanswered points against Abington. The secondary held two of the top receivers in the area to two receptions for 16 yards.
    Next up: vs. Scranton (4-2) (Watch on NPF) – Saturday
  3. Wyoming Area Warriors (6-0), defeated Scranton 35-19 (Last week: 3)
    Aaron Crossley must have broken about 25 tackles on Friday with power running. The Warriors passed the hardest test to date this season and are in the drivers seat to control their own destiny for playoff seeding.
    Next up: at Holy Redeemer (0-6) (Listen on NPF) – Saturday
  4. Delaware Valley Warriors (3-3), defeated North Pocono 42-0 (Last week: 6)
    Thw Warriors are not taking any prisoners with an impressive shutout this last Satuday. They have multiple weapon on offense and the defense is big and physical. Good challenge this Friday on the road.
    Next up: at Wilkes-Barre (4-2) (Listen on NPF) – Friday
  5. Abington Heights Comets (4-2), lost to Valley View 35-14 (Last week: 4)
    The Comets were looking good for one half on Saturday, but couldn’t get a first down in the second half until they were arlready down three touchdowns. Abington is running into injury issues and that could derail them as they try to get the No. 1 seed in Class 5A
    Next up: at Scranton Prep (5-1) – Friday
  6. Scranton Knights (4-2), lost to Wyoming Area 35-19 (Last week: 5)

    Next up: at Valley View (6-0) (Watch on NPF) – Friday


  1. Lackawanna Trail Lions (6-0), defeated Old Forge 41-7  (Last week: 1)
    The Lions rolled Friday in the first of two meetings with Old Forge. Lukas Gumble had a big night and the defense continues to be strong against both the run and the pass.
    Next up: at Riverside (4-2) (Listen on NPF) – Friday
  2. Scranton Prep Cavaliers (5-1), defeated Wallenpaupack 37-3 (Last week: 2)

  3. Western Wayne Wildcats (4-2), defeated West Scranton 21-14 (Last week: 3)
    It wasn’t pretty but the Wildcats like it that way. The defense remains stingy while they ride RB Josh Vinton on offense. ‘Cats are in the hunt for the division.
    Next up: vs. Mid Valley (4-2) – Friday
  4. Dunmore Bucks (4-2), defeated Mid Valley 46-6 (Last week: 5)
    That looked like a typical Dunmore team. Dominant up front and their athletes made big plays. The offense had struggled the first half of the season, but Friday showed you what the Bucks are capable of.
    Next up: at Lakeland (1-5) (Listen on NPF) – Friday
  5. Mid Valley Spartans (4-2), lost to Dunmore 46-6 (Last week: 4)
    The Spartans came crashing back down to earth and it won’t get any easier in the division. They were still able to run the ball which will keep them in most games, but the defense will have to be better.
    Next up: at Western Wayne (4-2)  – Friday
  6. Riverside Vikings (4-2), defeated Carbondale 63-14 (Last week: 6)
    Reese Gaughan became the all-time receiving leader in the LFC and Riverside rolled to an easy win. This Friday will probably decide the league title.
