Each week during the 2021 season we’ll offer some news, notes, tidbits and opinions from each of the five divisions in the Mid-Penn Conference.
A win away from perfection
Shippensburg has one final hurdle to clear to post an undefeated regular season. It’s a sticky game with a tough-to-beat Greencastle-Antrim side that finds ways to stick its nose into games and stay competitive despite a 4-5 record. And the Blue Devils still have playoff aspirations to go along with that upset as they currently sit only one spot below the yellow line at No. 11 in Class 4A.
The Greyhounds have been consistent and methodical if nothing else against quality teams this year. And that won’t change here. You can expect Greencastle-Antrim to make some noise at times, but over 48 minutes Ship makes a big ask of a Colonial Division opponent.

One of the best games in the entire conference to close out the regular season will be at Bostic Field in Dillsburg. The 6-2 Polar Bears will play host to the 7-2 Waynesboro Indians. Both squads are almost assured of making the second season in their respective classifications. The Indians might harbor hopes of a home game in the first round, but that is an outside shot at best even with a win. This will be a good one.
