Elite 11: A ranking of our top 11 teams after Week 4

Each week, we’re scouring the Mid-Penn, Lancaster-Lebanon, York, and Berks conferences to determine the top 11 teams in the area regardless of classification. Take a look at which teams made the cut after Week 4. Disagree, let us know on Twitter (@4thdownmag) and Facebook.

11. Wyomissing4-011
Handed previously unbeaten Hamburg its first loss of the season … by 40 points. Spartans defense has found its groove.
10. Cedar Cliff3-110
Colts eventually pulled away from West Shore School District rival Red Land behind 224 yards and three touchdowns from RB Jontae Morris.
9. Steel-High4-09
Rollers were held to their lowest point total this season, scoring ONLY 53 points in a win over Juniata. Still averaging 60-plus per outing.
8.Exeter Township2-25
Couple of quality losses for sure, but putting up only 14 against Hempfield in a narrow loss puts setback No. 2 at the feet of the offense.
7. Hempfield2-2NR
The Black Knights have played a super tough schedule and have been in every game and just held high scoring Exeter Township to only 14 points. Welcome!
6. CD East3-18
Quality road win at previously unbeaten Altoona that saw the Panthers flash balance on offense to go along with rock solid defense. Complete game.
5. Manheim Central4-06
Nice road win for the Barons at Perkiomen Valley, coming from a touchdown behind at intermission and scoring 29 second-half points to stay unbeaten. Offensive balance is tough to handle.
4. Bishop McDevitt2-14
Palmyra was coming off a short week after playing on a Monday night and getting its first win, and the Crusaders had an extra week off after COVID-19 issues. Of course it wasn’t pretty. McD went for 70-plus.
3. Harrisburg3-13
Took a game with No. 1-ranked Governor Mifflin on the road with less than 36 hours notice and made it a game for a half. Mustangs showed their pedigree in the second half, and that was expected. The Cougars aren’t looking for moral victories, so I’ll say this was a quality loss.
2. Central York3-02
Had an idle week, and the worst part for CY and their start quarterback is the best competition they will face this season is pretty much all behind them.
1. Governor Mifflin4-01
Took a few body blows from Harrisburg and absorbed them well before returning to the bully on the block and running away from the Cougars in the second half. Elite on many levels and playing like it.
