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.
Capital Division the gem of the Mid-Penn Conference?:
I’m going to say it now, this division could be the crown jewel of the Mid-Penn Conference this season. Big Spring, Boiling Springs, Camp Hill, Steel-High and Trinity all posted victories to open the 2021 campaign. Nobody lost and Middletown was idle. There’s at least a half-dozen high intrigue games I want to see this season among this six-pack of small school heavy hitters.
Boiling Springs capitalizing on its savy veterans:
Experience matters, and Boiling Springs opened up a can of it on Littlestown to the tune of a 69-burger. Scored six touchdowns on its first six offensive possessions, and the defense was in lockdown mode, creating short fields in addition to adding a pair of pick-6 touchdowns to its side of the ledger. Littlestown made a TON of mistakes to fuel the fire, but it only made the scoreboard roll faster. The Bubblers took some huge steps forward as a program a year ago. Feels like they are ready to step on teams now. For the record: this is a warning.
