Shamokin After Second Win Against Montoursville

Shamokin Area are searching for the second win of the season. Montoursville comes into Kemp Memorial at 6-0. Since the win against Central in Week 3, a near miss against Shik, lackluster against Danville, and good for a quarter and half against Selinsgrove, there is one common denominator. Physically the Indians will be in every game. Against the Warriors, this shouldn't change.

The things the Shamokin needs to improve on are penalties and turnovers. This weekends game will be a test with late November conditions arriving early. A blow to the Indians running game has been the loss of Ty DiRienzo for the season with a knee injury.

Indians will keep this one close, but I don't think they have the offensive firepower going right now to win this one.


Kind of mystery team has been Southern Columbia. Southern at 3-3 hosts #2 AAA team in the state in Selinsgrove. Last week Bloomsburg's passing attack picked apart Southern and came up with a close win. The last time Southern had four losses this late in the season was 1986. With a week number 9 game with Mount Carmel does a potential 5-5 Southern make the playoffs?

Mount Carmel

Mount Carmel surprised me last week with there 20-0 shut out of Loyalsock. I got to see the Lancers against Southern and thought they had the defense to shut down the Red Tornadoes. Couple that with the lack of success with the pass all season. Hat's off to the Big Red. Mount Carmel cannot get caught looking ahead to Lewisburg and Southern Area.
