I’ve emerged from District 3 power rating hell just in time to enter field hockey playoff hell: My daughter’s Central Dauphin team lost a toughie to Penn Manor, 2-1 at the very end of double overtime on Tuesday to to drop into the 3-AAA consolations. That means a trip to Millersville tonight instead a closer, cozier venue. Them’s the breaks.

How much of an FHD (Field Hockey Dad) am I these days? Well, if CD beats Red Lion tonight and advances to District 3’s fifth-place game on Saturday morning, I will by necessity skip the Harrisburg vs. Bishop McDevitt football game. Few things can tear me away from that.

Problem is, I have just enough time to squeeze in some skeletal state football rankings, although I was able to gain a little more depth this week than last 3 when I went AWOL.

  1. How is West Cathoilic #1 with three losses when Aliquippa has blown out every single team that they have played alllll year have the rankers been watching? Did they see Aliquippa’s playoff game and the defense are you kidding me………

  2. It’s all about schedule, Zo. West Catholic started 0-3 with losses to Roman Catholic (19-7), Archbishop Wood (28-0) and La Salle College HS (24-0). JMO, but I think Aliquippa goes 0-3 against that sked.

    Since that 0-3 start, West has won six straight against admittedly average teams. Aliquippa’s schedule is not bad, but there sure aren’t three schools on it like Roman, Wood and La Salle.

    So, record is relative when one starts comparing opponents. Ergo, I’m not kidding. Wrong, maybe, but not kidding.
