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.
Cougars gaining momentum:
Make it three wins in the last four contests for the suddenly streaking Palmyra, which used a 28-point third-quarter explosion and four turnovers to thump Milton Hershey. The Cougars welcome Red Land to Buck Swank with a real opportunity to make it four out of five. Raise your hand if you saw this coming for Chris Pope’s crew?
Crusaders rolloing on offense:
This is all you need to know about why Bishop McDevitt has been steamrolling teams since it lost that opener to La Salle College: the Crusaders, in four games, are averaging 10.6 yards per play on offense. Hard to imagine that number dropping much against Lower Dauphin this week, either.
