East Stroudsburg South and Pleasant Valley's annual matchup isn't a 'rivalry game' per se, but over the past two years it has had some serious implications on the Mountain Valley Conference race.

Since 2010, the Cavaliers and the Bears have entered their MVC battle separated by no more than a game in the standings. Two years ago both teams came into their week seven contest undefeated in the conference. Last year, although neither team had the season it envisioned, the Cavs and the Bears met with a 2-2 and 2-1 conference record respectively.

When a new coaching staff takes over a program, it's nice to have an experienced class of seniors to ease the transition.

Unfortunately, for first year head coach Josh Snyder that wasn't in the cards he was dealt when he took over the Tigers this season, with only five returning seniors.

Last year, Caleb Johnson was just one of a handful of talented Northern Lehigh football players that helped the team reach the District 11 AA championship game for the third consecutive season.

Whereas Johnson was sometimes the third or fourth option in the Bulldogs' offensive attack in 2011, this year the senior has become the team's focal-point.

Marian's Josh Green blasts out of a sandtrap during the District 11 Class AA team championships on Wednesday at the Willowbrook Golf Course.

CATASAUQUA - Marian's golf team knew it wasn't going to be easy in its first trip ever to the District 11 Team Golf Championships.

Adverse morning weather didn't dampen their spirits however as they set out to play the par-70 Willowbrook Golf Course with Notre Dame of Green Pond, Central Catholic and Moravian Academy with sight on the Class 2A title.

Notre Dame wound up the eventual champion shooting a four-player score of 307, but the Colts weren't too disappointed to finish second with a 326 score since they never played the course before.

Envision two rams lining up a yard apart from each other and locking horns for 48 minutes.

That is what the Anthracite Football League clash between Tamaqua and North Schuylkill could resemble come Friday night.

Both schools have been playing well this season, with Tamaqua (5-0, 3-0 AFL) atop the AFL conference standings.

The Spartans are coming into their match-up against Tamaqua with a 4-1 record, which is their league mark as well. That means the match-up between the Raiders and the Spartans have some pretty big AFL implications.
