By Andy Shay:
Each week during the 2020 season we’ll offer some news, notes, tidbits and opinions from each of the five divisions in the Mid-Penn Conference.
Colonial Division champion to be crowned:
We will have a Colonial Division champion in 2020. Mechanicsburg and Northern, a couple of District 3 qualifiers, will square off Thursday night at John H. Frederick Field. The winner will claim the division crown. Congrats to both programs for making the game happen when almost everybody else has closed up shop. Based on recent results, the Wildcats are the favorite. Polar Bears bring a three-game slide to the table.
Turkey Day tussle:
Speaking of Mechanicsburg, if you remember a time when Cumberland Valley and Mechanicsburg played each and every year this will warm your heart. The Wildcats and Eagles are scheduled to play a Thanksgiving Day game at John H. Frederick Field at 10:00 a.m. High school football on Turkey Day has me all giddy. I hope the game survives COVID-19.
