Andy Shay’s Elite 11 after Week 7

11. Manhiem Township5-211
Two setbacks are to ranked teams, Cumberland Valley and Hempfield, by a combined total of seven points. And the Blue Streaks offense is rolling with 97 points the last two games.
10. Lampeter-Strasburg6-110
Sixth consecutive game where the Pioneers’ defense has limited the opposition to 14 or fewer points with a convincing 30-7 triumph over Berks Catholic.
9. Central York6-19
Only loss is to ranked Cumberland Valley by a couple points early in the season. After a couple more close dog fights, they had no trouble rolling one-win Northeastern.
The Black Knights know how to win a close game against a quality opponent. Wilson is just the latest victim as the Bulldogs suffered a 20-16 setback for only their second loss of the season. Hempfield also beat Manheim Township and William Penn, each by only three points. Impressive.
7. Wyomissing7-07
Penn State coach James Franklin was in the house Saturday to check in on 2023 recruit OL J’ven Williams from the Spartans, and the Wyomissing simply overpowered Cocalico by surrendering seven or fewer points for the fifth time in seven games.
6. Solanco7-06
The Golden Mules are enjoying a magical season, this time edging previously unbeaten Elizabethtown by three points. It was the fifth win this season for Solanco by eight or fewer points. That’s not easy to accomplish week after week.
5. Cumberland Valley6-15
Eagles dominated the first half and led Central Dauphin 21-0 at intermission before the Rams fought back in the second half to at least put some pressure on CV. Offense is powering this team, scoring 30 or more points for the third time in four games.
4. Manheim Central7-04
Barons have scored 153 points in their last two games, including 83 against winless Lebanon in Week 7. Only 21 of those points came after halftime. Maybe this week’s opponent, Conestoga Valley, can provide more resistance with four wins under its belt.
3. Exeter Township7-02
No surprise at all the Eagles are 7-0 at this point. Here comes the real tests for this squad with fellow ranked teams Hempfield and Manheim Central on the docket in the final three weeks.
2. Harrisburg5-13
How about the Cougars rolling Altoona and CD East by a combined 100-0? Somebody has found their game, it appears. Massive MPC Commonwealth battle with unbeaten State College on Saturday at Severance Field.
1. Bishop McDevitt5-11
Scored a season-high 70 in blanking a .500 Hershey team that had won three in a row coming into this matchup. Despite scoring only 14 points in their season-opening loss to fellow state-ranked hammer Imhotep Charter, the Crusaders are now averaging 50 a game.
