Delaware Valley rises to No. 2

Delaware Valley went to North Pocono and beat the Trojans, allowing the Warriors to swap places with them, moving up from third to second among Big Schools in this week’s Gaughan Auto Store Super Six Power Rankings.

The reversal of the Warriors and Trojans represents the only change in the weekly rankings of Lackawanna Football Conference and Wyoming Valley Conference teams on

With the regular season complete, the playoffs open with 10 of the 12 ranked teams playing at home as higher seeds and favorites. The other two earned byes with the help of teams declining to play them in the playoffs.

Valley View remained the No. 1 Big School despite suffering its first loss, falling to No. 1 Small School Scranton Prep, 17-10, for the LFC Division 2 title.

Delaware Valley’s win over North Pocono decided the LFC Division 1 title.

Hazleton Area, Dallas and Berwick remained 4-5-6. Hazleton Area won the Wyoming Valley Conference Class 6A/5A Division title when it won at Williamsport, 14-11.

Scranton Prep is followed by the same five teams this week, in order, Wyoming Area, Old Forge, Lakeland, Mid Valley and Lackawanna Trail.

Old Forge won the LFC Division 4 title by beating Lackawanna Trail, 35-0. Lakeland won the LFC Division 3 title with a 21-17 win at Dunmore.

Scranton Prep and Old Forge, the only two unbeatens, now that the Cavaliers defeated Valley View, are also the only teams with byes to begin the playoffs.

The rankings, with records and last week’s rank.
