No. 1 will meet No. 2 in final true District 2 football game of season

The football season is down to six remaining teams from District 2 and just one game left between district opponents.

The last matchup of the season features the Big School No. 1 and No. 2 teams of the Gaughan Auto Store Super Six Power Rankings against each other when top-ranked Crestwood hosts Valley View Friday for the District 2 Class 4A title.

The season is ending on a high note with two games between second- and third-ranked teams in the next-to-last weekend the season.

Scranton Prep, the preseason Small School No. 1, used a win in one of those games to climb from third to second when the rankings were updated this week by our partners at The Cavaliers defeated Western Wayne, 28-14, for the District 2 Class 3A title.

Delaware Valley also gained ground this week, moving up from fourth to third among Big Schools after taking the District 2 Class 5A title with a 24-21 victory over Scranton.

Once-beaten Crestwood and unbeaten Lakeland each won to hold on to the No. 1 rankings and protect the best records in the district.

Crestwood ripped Berwick, 56-14, in a Class 4A semifinal.

Valley View downed Dallas, 31-14, in the other semifinal to hold second.

Delaware Valley used its district title to advance into state play at Whitehall.

Dallas dropped from third to fourth.

Hazleton Area, which finished a week earlier, slipped to fifth while Scranton held on to sixth.

Lakeland won the District 2 Class 2A title, 20-14, over Dunmore to move into a Friday state game at Dunmore against Executive Education.

Scranton Prep will play Neumann-Goretti in a state Class 3A game Friday at Scranton Memorial Stadium.

Western Wayne and Dunmore, which held on to fourth, had their seasons end.

Lackawanna Trail remained in fifth after routing Jenkintown, 40-7, for the District 1-2 Class A Subregional title. It plays Northern Lehigh in a state game Saturday at Dunmore.

Old Forge, which ended its season a week earlier, remains in sixth.
