Pennsylvania high school football: Scores, highlights from Week 9 in Mid-Penn Conference and midstate

Two (co-)division champions could be crowned by the end of this week. The rest of the titles in the Mid-Penn Conference likely have to wait until Week 10, making for a fun finale before the postseason.

Here’s how things look right now:

  • Harrisburg (7-1, 5-0 Commonwealth) can clinch at least a share of the Mid-Penn Commonwealth title with a win over Chambersburg on Saturday. The Cougars are heavily favored. State College and Cumberland Valley both trail by a game.
  • Bishop McDevitt (8-0, 5-0 Keystone) faces 4-4 Mifflin County and can claim a share of the division in what is expected to be a blowout victory. Outright titles for McDevitt and Harrisburg likely have to wait until Week 10, but each feels like a foregone conclusion at this point.
  • We almost get a Liberty Division championship game with Juniata (5-3, 4-0) visiting Line Mountain (6-2, 4-0). The winner is a game up on the lose, and likely Upper Dauphin (5-3, 4-1).
  • Same in the Colonial Division, which has suddenly gotten juicy with East Pennsboro’s shocking Week 7 loss. The Panthers (7-1, 4-1) now visit surging, and likely slight favorite, Susquehanna Township (5-3, 4-1) in a game that will almost certainly decide the division.
  • And the best race of them all will have to wait one more week. Steel-High and West Perry, both undefeated, won’t face off until Week 10. As long as the Mustangs don’t stumble over Camp Hill and the Rollers over Trinity this week, we know where all eyes will be a week from now.

So buckle up. The penultimate week of the Pennsylvania high school football season looks like a dandy.
