Third-ranked Holy Redeemer won three times to reach 5-0. Second-ranked Delaware Valley is 4-0 and top-ranked Berwick is 3-0 after each won twice.

The district’s fourth unbeaten team is now the fourth-ranked team, Western Wayne, which jumped up two positions after beating Blue Ridge and sweeping Abington Heights.

Nanticoke slipped just one spot, from third to fourth, after suffering its first loss in a Wyoming Valley Conference meeting of unbeaten teams against Delaware Valley.
