Colonial division offering plenty of entertainment:
We call this the Crazy Colonial for a reason, and as the Mid-Penn Conference gets ready to enter division play for 2021, this division will once again live up to its billing. I’m convinced of this. All you need to know after three games: Shippensburg is the only undefeated club, and Susquehanna Township is the only winless squad.
The other six teams are 2-1 overall. Saddle up and enjoy this ride because something tells me there could be some dramatic week-to-week shifts in the power table for this group. The matchup this week that will give us a taste is Greencastle-Antrim at East Pennsboro.
Waynesboro a wild card who could shake the division standings:
The team I’m eyeing as the potential standings wrecker in the Colonial is Waynesboro. The Indians outlasted Gettysburg in a wild triple overtime affair to complete a solid three-game test in terms of a schedule to open the season, finishing 2-1 during that stretch.
They are primed to enter Colonial action because they have experienced a little bit of everything already. Waynesboro can come at you in waves on offense, and that presents some problems. It starts with RB’s Aidan Mencia and Mikel Holden. Mencia is averaging 9.2 yards per carry so far. QB Louis Lindsay is a dual threat with more than 600 total yards. The Indians have five receivers with four or more catches. Their defense has been shaky, but when you bring a diverse and deep offense to the table you ride that firepower as far as it will take you.
