Football

The final week of the regular season often has all the intensity and pressure of postseason football.

Some teams are battling to get into the playoffs while others are fighting for a better seed and a postseason home game.

There were six games last week that featured local teams and four of them (Jim Thorpe at Lehighton, Marian at Tamaqua, Northwestern at Catasauqua, and Stroudsburg at Pleasant Valley) had postseason implications for one or both teams.
