Pete's Top-10 Titles are on the line

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

Not a very shocking week in terms of wins and losses, but Parkland's 41-10 victory over Easton pretty much showed everyone what they needed to know about the Trojans. Clearly, the best team around, but it would be interesting to see what the Rough Riders of Catasaqua could do against the Trojans.

Since district sports are run by computers now, maybe we can assemble a computer generated mock Lehigh Valley championship game?

Now that would be fun. Wouldn't it?

1. Parkland (9-2)

Last week's rank: #1

Might as well just put Parkland in the championship.

The Pick: Parkland 42- Pleasant Valley 7

2. Whitehall (8-3)

Last week's rank: #2

Unfortunate way to end the year for the Zephs.

Season Over

3. Catasauqua (11-0)

Last week's rank: #4

Pretty impressive run by Catty this season should end with a district title.

The Pick: Catasauqua 35- Pen Argyl 14

4. Easton (9-2)

Last week's rank: #3

I heard an Easton player at the Liberty-Freedom game say that Parkland peaked too early. Yeah, ok.

Season Over

5. Central (6-5)

Last week's rank: #6

Southern Lehigh could keep it close this week because of their size up front.

The Pick: Central 31- Southern Lehigh 21

6. Nazareth (6-5)

Last week's rank: #9

Blue Eagles should win the high school NIT.

The Pick: Nazareth 28- Wyoming Valley West 27

7. Pleasant Vy (8-3)

Last week's rank: #7

Can the Bears make a statement against Parkland by just competing?

The Pick: Parkland 42- Pleasant Valley 7

8. Pen Argyl (9-2)

Last week's rank: #8

I would bet my house on Pen Argyl not being able to pull off the upset.

The Pick: Catasauqua 35- Pen Argyl 14

9. Stroudsburg (9-1)

Last week's rank: #6

Tough to beat same team twice.

Season Over

10. So. Lehigh (8-3)

Not ranked

Spartans are in, but it'll probably be their last week.

The Pick: Central 31- Southern Lehigh 21

Ÿ Teams entered: Emmaus (10)

Ÿ Teams dropped: Southern Lehigh (10)

Ÿ Last week: 6-2

Ÿ Overall: 70-17
