WVC Logo

As we hit the last Friday of September, I always find it hard to believe that we are almost at the halfway point. By the end of October, we’ll be trading our shorts and t-shirts to pants and hoodies or Jackets depending on your preference. The entire game will be in the dark unless you play on a Saturday afternoon. Hopefully we have very little cancellations/postponements the rest of the way as we unfortunately lost the Old Shoe game due to COVID-19. With all that being said, let’s get into the games.

Williamsport at Berwick
Friday 7 PM
Williamsport is coming off a win over Central Mountain. Berwick is coming off a loss to Selinsgrove. Millionaires sophomore RB Jamair Harden has 16 catches for 381 yards and four touchdowns. Bulldogs senior RB Aidan Mason is rushing for 183 yards and three touchdowns on the season. The Millionaires are heading to Crispin Field riding a two game winning streak. The Bulldogs are currently on a two game losing streak. It’s a game between two teams going in opposite directions.
Prediction: Williamsport 35 Berwick 14

Valley West at Tunkhannock
Friday 7 PM
Valley West is coming off a win over Abington Heights. Tunkhannock is coming off a loss to North Pocono. Spartans DB Connor Olisewski has three interceptions on the season. Tigers RB Ty Konen has 217 yards rushing with three touchdowns. He has added eight catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Valley West got a big victory last week after their upset loss to Pittston Area. They are currently 4th in District 2/11 5A Subregional standings. The Tigers are looking to rebound at home. They are currently in 6th in the District 2 4A Standings.
Prediction: Valley West 35 Tunkhannock 7

Susquehanna at Nanticoke
Friday 7 PM
Susquehanna is coming off a loss to Lackawanna Trail. Nanticoke is coming off a loss to Shamokin. Sabers senior RB Jesse DeLousia is rushing for 223 yards and a touchdown. He leads the team in catches with eight and has an interception on defense. Trojans sophomore RB Zach Fox is rushing for 168 yards and a touchdown. Both teams are looking for their first win of the season. Both teams have had at least one game where they’ve looked like they were in line for their first win but a bad break could be the difference between a win and a loss.
Prediction: Nanticoke 28 Susquehanna 20
