District 6 Talk Week 2

Written by: on Wednesday, September 16th, 2009


Mount Union Area – A little “O” could go a long way

If you’re a member of the press, at least Mount Union Area games are fast-moving. The Trojans are having a hard time scoring points.

First, there came a 22-3 loss on opening weekend to Huntingdon Area. Not that big of a deal – Huntingdon has been known to field grinding offenses that can drain several minutes off of the clock and defenses that can stop the run with regularity.

But the real shocker came last week against West Branch. Maybe the Warriors are improving in football terms, but Mount Union only put up 18 points in a shutout victory. That means, through two games, the Trojans are scoring an average of just 10.5 points per game, and, even with a 1-1 record, have given up one more point than they’ve scored.

MUA needs to find some scoring, and in a hurry – Tussey Mountain is the next opponent, and the Titans are averaging 37.5 points per game this season.

State College Area – Lions have won 14 of their last 15 games

The Little Lions are rolling…or at least it seemed like they were going to keep on rolling after their impressive 57-6 victory over Hollidaysburg to open the season. A 21-2 lead quickly evaporated and nearly turned to a loss, but State College hung on for a 21-17 victory against Cumberland Valley.

Last season, recall, the Little Lions defeated the Eagles 17-14.

State College enters this week’s showdown with undefeated Central Dauphin having won 14 of its last 15 games, dating back to last season. SCA defeated CD 27-13 last year, even after CD built a 13-7 lead scoring 13 unanswered points.

Tyrone – Another Franco causing opponents to fret

No, it’s not the head coach, who is one of the most successful in District 6 history. No, it’s not a running back that torched the opposition for nearly 2,000 yards rushing.

This latest Franco is a sophomore quarterback, and he’s off to a pretty decent start to his season.

Steve Franco has completed 13-of-21 passes (.619 percent) for 295 yards and three touchdowns. He’s averaging a cool 147.5 yards per game this season, and Tyrone is 1-1 after a Week 1 loss to Bellwood-Antis and a narrow 14-6 victory over Huntingdon Area.
