Trying to make a move with just two weeks left
BY ED HEDES
Well Week 11 of the Grid Picks went down as one of our worst of the 2012 season as the local teams who we paid tribute to for their outstanding 10 week trek through the regular schedule didn't fair out too well.
Only Pleasant Valley remains alive among the regular teams so we're getting down to the nitty gritty with just one week left after this.
Brad Hurley, on the other hand, made a big move losing just two games and passed a group of us into second place, and deserves a tip of the cap.
So without further adieu, here's how this corner sees what's going to happen when the games kick off tonight to start the weekend:
PLEASANT VALLEY AT PARKLAND - The Bears have had an outstanding year and despite not winning the MVC title, got revenge on Stroudsburg last week. The Trojans are playing their best ball of the season though...PARKLAND, 35-21.
DELAWARE VALLEY AT SCRANTON - A rematch of an earlier season contest where Del Val blew a lead and lost. This one will be close again...Scranton, 27-26.
SOUTHERN LEHIGH AT CENTRAL CATHOLIC - A nice run comes to an end here for the Spartans...Central Catholic, 24-7.
PEN ARGYL AT CATASAUQUA - The Green Knights had their "armor" shining last week by eliminating Tamaqua. This week, it's...Catasauqua, 35-18.
TRI-VALLEY AT WILLIAMS VALLEY - Their regular season matchup went to overtime. This one might too...Williams VALLEY, 24-21.
NAZARETH AT WYOMING VALLEY WEST - WVW bat an LVC team in Emmaus last week with a late TD. Not this week...Nazareth, 28-27.
SCRANTON PREP AT MUHLENBERG - Berks County team finds out what Northeastern PA football is all about...Scranton Prep, 21-14.
CARBONDALE AT NORTH SCHUYLKILL - Looks like the Spartans want to end the season with a blast after last week's big win...North Schuylkill, 31-13.
ABINGTON HEIGHTS AT BERWICK - Never picked against a George Curry team before, and still won't...Berwick, 21-18.
MILTON AT SELINSGROVE - Looks like the Seals are tough to beat...Selinsgrove, 21-7.
LAKELAND AT WYOMING AREA - I'll just flip the coin here since this looks like a tossup...Wyoming Area, 14-7.
ATHENS AT DANVILLE - Can't pick a team from Athens since I thought they only played soccer in Greece...Danville, 28-20.
MOUNT CARMEL AT MONTOURSVILLE - Taking a game with the Red Tornadoes...Mount Carmel, 21-18.
DUNMORE AT OLD FORGE - The Bucks have plenty of experience as a playoff team...Dunmore, 18-14.
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT AT SOUTHERN COLUMBIA - The tradition continues for Jim Roth's Tigers as they always seem to get that extra boost when it's playoff time...Southern Columbia, 28-12.
