District 8 Talk Week 5

Written by: on Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Oliver defeats Perry – are the Bears the City League’s second-best team?

Oliver won another game, the latest a 12-6 victory over Perry this past weekend. Preseason, Perry was picked as the favorite in the City League. So does Oliver’s narrow victory over the Commodores vault them into the #2 spot behind Brashear? Perhaps.

But Oliver’s victory was less than convincing. The Bears finished the game with less than 60 yards of total offense, and had to overcome a 6-0 deficit. For the season, Oliver is only averaging 21.6 points per game.

Then again, the way the Bears’ defense has played this season, the offense may not need to win games with style points. Oliver has only allowed 32 points on the season, an average of 6.4 points per game.

Oliver is off to its best start since 2006, when it finished 12-2 and lost a narrow 14-6 decision to General McLane in the PIAA “AAA” quarterfinals.

Brashear struggles with Westinghouse

The Bulls, thought to have an explosive offensive unit that featured weapons like quarterback Henri Chapman, running back Bruce Patterson, and standout Division-1 multi-purpose athlete Manasseh Garner, struggled to beat winless Westinghouse, 17-0, this past weekend. Brashear won the 2008 meeting 45-6.

Through five weeks, Brashear easily leads the City League in points scored (163). The second-place team, in terms of points scored, is Oliver (108).

Last season, Brashear scored more than 350 points and won 10 games, topping the 30-point mark six times in nine regular season games. The season before last, Brashear scored an impressive 435 points.

Carrick is up next for Brashear. The Raiders are allowing an average of nearly 23 points per game.

The Bulls defeated the blue and gold 21-6 last year.
