We are 5 games into the 22-23 high school football season and in southeastern Pennsylvania you’ll find me pacing the sidelines of the Suburban One League on Friday nights. The SOL consists of the American, Continental, & National conferences and is comprised of 23 teams throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties.
The American conference looks to go through Upper Moreland(5A) at this time though Springfield-Montco(4A), Plymouth Whitemarsh (5A), & Cheltenham(6A) may have something to say about that. They beat New Hope-Solebury 35-14 in league play and have outscored their opponents 166-82. So far Upper Moreland’s Sr RB No. 5 Stephen Broderick has impressed me and look for him to have a dominant second half of the season as he’s already accounted for 797 yards rushing on 94 carries with 13 TDs.
|(1) Upper Dublin||1-0||5-0|
|Council Rock South||1-1||2-3|
|Council Rock North||0-2||1-4|
|Harry S. Truman||0-2||1-4|
As it stands right now the Continental Conference will be decided between 2 6A squads (Souderton or Quakertown) or 5A stud Upper Dublin. The PFN staff has UD ranked as the #1 team in the State. As of now, the Cardinals are the team to beat. They have a very potent offensive attack lead by Senior QB No. 9 Colin O’Sullivan who has completed 66% of his passes on one hundred attempts for 1,112 yards. He has 14 TDs while only tossing 2 INTs. Souderton and Quakertown both play each other this week so the picture should be a little clearer.
|Central Bucks East||2-0||5-0|
|Central Bucks West||1-1||2-3|
|Central Bucks South||0-2||3-2|
Central Bucks East (6A) is the top dawg through the first half in the National conference. The Patriots are already 2-0 and look to keep things rolling. The division picture will also look a little clearer after they meet with Pennsbury this Friday night. Pennsbury is 4-1 on the year and 2-0 in the conference after a previous losing streak that started in 2019 and ended this season with their 35-0 victory over William Tennent. East’s Senior running back No. 21 Ethan Shine is a tank. He’s at 1,004 yards on the season with 13 TDs. Pennsbury is paced by SR running back No. 24 G. Mulbah who has rushed for 606 yards and 9 TDs.
Biggest Surprises: North Penn’s overall record at the hallway point (2-3), Pennsbury’s record so far (4-1) overall & (2-0) in conference, & CB East being undefeated.
Game of the Year nominees: (5A) Upper Dublin’s come from behind win over (6A) North Penn 32-28 or CB East’s double overtime thrilling win against Pennridge 16-13.
