WYALUSING - The Wyalusing Rams ignored the distractions of Homecoming, the chilly night, and even the full moon to overpower the Cowanesque Valley Indians 42-6 on Friday night.

TOWANDA - Friday night's Towanda Homecoming football game will not be remembered as one of the classics in the ancient rivalry between the Black Knights and the Athens Wildcats. Towanda was a heavy favorite, and they showed that stature was deserved by scoring two touchdowns in the first two minutes. Despite a highlight film performance in the first half by tailback Casey Shipposh, the Wildcats could never climb back into contention, and in the second half Towanda controlled Shipposh while wearing the Wildcats down on the chilly, drizzly, windy night.
BLOOMSBURG - It was the perfect time and position to call a fake punt and everyone on the Hughesville sideline knew it. Coaches shouted at the 11 Spartan defenders on the field warning of the possibility, but every caution taken couldn't deny Bloomsburg's Blake Rankin.
