Difficult Schedules????

In most of last week's newspapers, much reference was made of the difficulty of the Southern Columbia football schedule.  The Tigers have games with Lewisburg, Bloomsburg, Danville Mount Carmel and Selinsgrove in the final six weeks of the season. 

With an opener against Line Mountain, the Tigers indeed have the toughest schedule in the area.  Mount Carmel and Shamokin also finish on a tough note.  The Red Tornadoes play at North Schuylkill tonight, host Shikellamy next week, travel to Southern in week 9 and host Shamokin Area for the Coal Bucket.  With earlier games against Selinsgrove and Lewisburg, Mount Carmel may tie Southern for toughest schedule.

Shamokin may actually get to benefit.  The Indians will play Danville a week after the Ironmen play Southern.  They travel to Shikellamy a week after the Braves play Mount Carmel.  The Indians close out the regular season at Mount Carmel after the Red Tornadoes have played North Schuylkill, Shikellamy and Southern.  Will the Indians come up big?

Shikellamy plays Mount Carmel and Shamokin back-to-back in week's 8 and 9.

One thing for sure is that playoff seedings remain wide open.
