Elite 11: a ranking of the top 11 teams after Week 9

11. Cedar Cliff7-210
Ended up in a running back shootout in Week 9 where the RB1 for the Colts and Milton Hershey ended up combining for nearly 600 rushing yards and six touchdowns.
10. Wyomissing8-09
You have to remind yourself at times that this team was in a little bit of a retooling mode this season in some key spots. Offense is just as powerful as ever, and getting a couple scores on this defense is very difficult.
9. Shippensburg9-08
Probably had its most pedestrian overall effort of the season but was never in any danger against East Pennsboro. There’s something to be said for that.
8.Central Dauphin5-26
Ran into sister school CD East, the No. 5-ranked squad, and was simply overpowered up front on both sides of the ball consistently. Stayed in the game, but never had a say in the outcome.
7. Manheim Central8-1NR
Welcome the Barons back to the rankings. MC has scored 105 points with back-to-back shutouts in its last eight quarters.
6. Exeter Township6-37
Has played a quality non-conference schedule that is showing up down the stretch. The Eagles have all the pieces to make some playoff noise.
5. CD East7-25
In a matchup full of emotion against rival Central Dauphin, the Panthers leaned on their identity of physical running and aggressive defense to overpower the Rams.
4. Bishop McDevitt7-14
Seven straight games the Crusaders have scored 55 or more points. Part of that is the quality of their schedule, but it’s largely based on a ridiculous wealth of riches on offense.
3. Harrisburg8-13
Was pushed to the limit by a State College team that came in riding the struggle bus. Not losing to the Little Lions when playing below average could be helpful moving forward.
2. Central York8-02
Nice to see Panthers get a test from Dallastown, and the way Central York responded validates they have some football mettle to go along with all that flash.
1. Governor Mifflin7-01
Lost another game to COVID-19 issues for the opposing team. It’s been a tough season for the Mustangs on that front. This is at least the third game out of nine where GM either had to scramble to find an opponent or lost a game.
