Here are the rankings after Week 7  powered by Gaughan Auto Store:

BIG SCHOOL

 

  1. Dallas Mountaineers (7-0), defeated Berwick 42-6 (Last week: 1)
    Dallas is handling the WVC pretty easily at this point so they will take a shot at an LFC team. Paupack has struggled but it’s never an easy trip up to the Big Lake. Mounts still competing for that No. 1 seed.
    Next up: at Wallenpaupack (2-5)  – Friday
  2. Valley View Cougars (7-0), defeated Scranton 20-6 (Last week: 2)
    Valley View will probably be playing this week for the division title, but be the underdog at home. While the defense continues to shine, the offense has been run-heavy and that will have to change to get wins late in the season.
    Next up: vs. Delaware Valley (4-3) (Watch on NPF) – Friday
  3. Wyoming Area Warriors (7-0), defeated Holy Redeemer (Last week: 3)
    The Warriors are taking it easy and this week with lesser opponents, but then the real challenge comes in Week 9. Aaron Crossley should be well-rested and ready.
    Next up: at Lake-Lehman (Listen on NPF) – Friday
  4. Delaware Valley Warriors (4-3), defeated Wilkes-Barre 41-6 (Last week: 4)
    The Warriors have averaged almost 40 points per game against District 2 opponents, although they might see the best defense in the area this week. DV is still the favorite and can basically clinch the division with a win as they will be heavily favored the last two games.
    Next up: at Valley View (7-0) (Watch on NPF) – Friday
  5. Scranton Knights (4-3), lost to Valley View 20-6  (Last week: 6)
    The Knights held Valley View to 20 points, but couldn’t move the ball with the exception of one players. With the division out of reach, they now will play for district seeding and this week’s game will be a determining factor.
    Next up: vs. Abington Heights (4-3) – Friday
  6. Abington Heights Comets (4-3), lost to Scranton Prep 50-21 (Last week: 5)
    The Comets took another physical beating and look like MASH unit at this point. The passing game has still had some success, but still not ready to compete with top-tier defenses
    Next up: at Scranton (4-3) – Friday







SMALL SCHOOL

  1. Lackawanna Trail Lions (7-0), defeated Riverside 28-21 (Last week: 1)
    It was a close call, but a good road win for the Lions. They are now in the drivers seat for LFC Division III. Should be smooth sailing into the district playoffs.
    Next up: at Carbondale (2-5) (Listen on NPF) – Saturday
  2. Scranton Prep Cavaliers (6-1), defeated Abington Heights 50-21 (Last week: 2)
    Cavaliers had no problem this week and showed their physicality. The offense remains balanced and tough to stop. Plenty of weapons for Prep.
    Next up: at North Pocono (3-4) – Friday
  3. Western Wayne Wildcats (5-2), defeated Mid Valley 28-13 (Last week: 3)
    Wildcats struggled a little but ended up with a win. They now travel to play for what will probably be the division title although Honesdale is still lurking.
    Next up: vs. Mid Valley (4-2) – Friday
  4. Dunmore Bucks (5-2), defeated Lakeland 55-7 (Last week: 4)
    The Bucks are on a roll and look as good as we thought they could. This week will probably judge their fate for the division but they remain the favorite in Class 2A in District 2.
    Next up: vs. Western Wayne (5-2) (Listen on NPF) – Friday
  5. Mid Valley Spartans (4-3), lost to Western Wayne 28-13 (Last week: 5)
    Spartans are not enjoying the harder schedule and also had to play without their starting quarterback. They hung in there on the road against a good team, but it’s gonna be tough to get any more wins the next three weeks.
    Next up: vs. Honesdale (3-4)  – Friday
  6. Riverside Vikings (4-3), lost to Lackawanna Trail 28-21 (Last week: 6)
    The Vikings might have played their best game of the year even though they lost. The defense was solid only giving up three touchdowns, but a special teams touchdown was the difference.
    Next up: at Susquehanna (4-3) – Friday
