WESTFIELD - In match up of two teams heading in opposite directions, the Black Knights upped their record to 5-0 with a 48-6 victory over the 0-5 Cowanesque Indians. Towanda's Mason Roof proved to be tough to tame because he wasn't tackled all night and the Knights, as well, weren't stopped in the first half.
TROY - The Troy Trojans stepped outside the NTL to play Freedom Village of New York on Friday nights, and sent the Homecoming crowd home from Alparon Park happy with a 35-12 victory. It took a 21 point outburst in the second quarter, including two touchdowns in a span of 31 seconds, to put away the talented but undermanned visitors from the Finger Lakes region.
WYALUSING - In a match-up between the top NTL small school division teams, the Wyalusing Rams set themselves apart at the top with a 30-13 win over the visiting Canton Warriors.
With a swarming defense and a powerful running game Mount Carmel cruised to an easy 40-0 victory over Montoursville Friday night.
MONTGOMERY - Montgomery's roster lists 31 players, but against the Bloomsburg Panthers, the Red Raiders only had 23 players suited up. That, combined with a fairly young overall team didn't bode well for the Red Raiders at all, and a talented Bloomsburg team capitalized on it in a 48-7 victory Friday night at Montgomery.
MIFFLINBURG - Tony Confer stood on the damp field at Mifflinburg High School on Friday night with a football tucked under his left arm, protected the way he'd want one of his running backs securing the ball.
CATAWISSA - The halfway point of the season marked many teams' homecoming games, with none being bigger than Southern Columbia's as it welcomed Lewisburg for a Heartland Athletic Conference contest.
SHAMOKIN - The Loyalsock linebackers and defensive backs had nearly identical expressions as Shamokin celebrated its go-ahead touchdown with just 56 seconds to go Friday night.
TURBOTVILLE - Chris Secules might be working his way toward a new starting position. And Friday, he might have delivered the play that could provide Muncy's turning point this season.
The Sayre Redskins used a big third quarter, and a huge day by Joe Yanuzzi, to roll to a 34-7 victory over South Williamsport on Friday night.
WESTFIELD - With the temperatures unseasonably high and a radiating high near 90 for the day, Canton blazed to a 42-14 win over Cowanesque Valley. It was in the second quarter that the Warriors lit up the home standing Indians, making the difference in the game.
TROY - Wyalusing's Paul Hugo carried the ball nearly 20 times for almost 100 yards, then calmly booted a 28 yard field goal as the clock expired to give the Rams a nail-biting 24-21 victory over the Troy Trojans Friday night at Alparon Park. The win lifted Wyalusing to 3-1 on the young season, while Troy dropped to 1-3.
TOWANDA - On a muggy night, drench-soaked quarterback Cody Miller stood among teammates Zach Place and Garrett Dinelli and delved out credit to his entire team the way a senior-signal caller should following a huge win over North Penn in a battle of unbeatens, 28-7.
CANTON - A week ago both North Penn and Canton were riding high after they each posted dominating week one football victories.
TOWANDA - It was (Cody) Miller time in Towanda Friday as the Black Knight quarterback threw for almost 400 yards and three touchdowns, while adding two more on the ground, to help give his team a 40-15 win over Southside.
