Berks Football Power Rankings: Week 6

1. Wilson (3-0, 6-0) [Even]Wilson Logo
The Bulldogs pulled off another victory on Friday against Hempfield by a count of 41-23. Wilson has now won 39 consecutive games in Section 1 of the Lancaster-Lebanon League. They will face a Lancaster Catholic team who has won 3 in a row this Friday.
2. Berks Catholic (2-0, 6-0) [+1]Berks_Catholic
The Saints just keep on rolling as they defeated Schuylkill Valley 36-7 on Friday. The defense has allowed just 65 points through 6 games this season. The Saints will travel to Hamburg to face an erratic Hawks team this week.
3. Gov. Mifflin (3-0, 4-2) [+1]Governer_Mifflin_Logo
The Mustangs have now won 21 straight games over BFL Section 1 teams after knocking off previously unbeaten Muhlenberg. Mifflin has allowed just 14 points in their 4 wins this season. Up next for the Mustangs is a date with Reading Friday.
4. Exeter (2-1, 5-1) [+1]Exeter_Logo
The Eagles got back to their winning ways with a 49-12 victory over Reading. This year’s Exeter squad has a very balanced offense and strong defense. The Eagles will travel to Muhlenberg this week.
5. Muhlenberg (2-1, 5-1) [-3]muhlenburg
The Muhls were dealt their first loss of the season when they faced Mifflin this past week. They are still among Berks County’s best teams, especially on defense where they have allowed just 67 points through 6 games.
6. Conrad Weiser (2-1, 5-1) [Even]Conrad_Weiser_Logo
The Scouts had their best defensive performance of the season on Friday, shutting out Pottsville. Weiser held the Tide to negative 30 rushing yards. The Scouts will look to continue their winning ways against Twin Valley this week.
7. Fleetwood (2-0, 4-2) [Even]Fleetwood
The Tigers set a team record for wins this week. However, Fleetwood’s season is far from over as they hope to contend for a Section 2 title. Tyler Emge suffered a scary injury during the win over Northern Lebanon. If he is out for any extended period of time, it could really hurt the Tigers chances.
8. Schuylkill Valley (1-2, 4-2) [Even]Schuylkill Valley Logo
The Panthers went on the road and lost for the second consecutive week, this time to Berks Catholic. If they can get contributions from Nick Scheidt like they got the first four weeks, they will be alright. The Panthers play host to Blue Mountain this week.
9. Wyomissing (2-0, 3-3) [+1]Wyomissing Logo
The Spartans saw an offensive outburst this week against Kutztown in a 49-22 win. Wyomissing jumped out to a 42-0 lead at halftime and relied on the big play early and often. They will face their toughest league test yet when they travel to Fleetwood Friday.
10. Boyertown (3-2, 4-2) [+2]Boyertown Bears
The Bears won a shootout with Pottstown this past Friday, 49-34. Running back Cody Richmond boasts a Berks County-best 834 rushing yards. Richmond could very well break the 1,000 yard mark this week against a struggling Phoenixville team.
11. Pottsville (1-2, 3-3) [Even]Pottsville Logo
The Crimson Tide have now fallen in back to back games following a 3-1 start. Unfortunately for them, they have faced two of the better teams in Muhlenberg and Weiser. They will look to get back in the win column this week against Daniel Boone.
12. Blue Mountain (1-2, 2-4) [+2]
The Eagles shutout Hamburg this week by a count of 33-0. Once again, Blue Mountain got great contributions from Will Bornstein in the run game. Despite their dismal record, the Eagles actually have only been outscored by 5 points this season. They will look to keep the wins coming when they travel to Schuylkill Valley this week.
13. Hamburg (1-2, 4-2) [-4]Hamburg_Hawks
Hamburg has had a fairly turbulent season thus far, so we’ll see how the Hawks fare as they host an undefeated Berks Catholic on Friday.
14. Daniel Boone (1-2, 2-4) [+1]Daniel_Boone_Blazers_Logo
The Blazers got a much needed win on Friday against Twin Valley. They struggled at times, but the end result was something everyone in Boone Country can be pleased with. Boone will travel to Pottsville this week in search of another win.
15. Reading (1-2, 2-4) [-2]Reading Logo
The Red Knights have struggled very much this season. They do however boast one of the best receiving cores in the county. Both Dontae Owens and Julious Young-Trapp have established themselves as playmakers. Reading will face Section 1 leaders Gov. Mifflin this week.
16. Twin Valley (0-3, 0-6) [Even]Twin Valley Logo
Sure, it’s been a tough season for the Raiders, but they have held a halftime lead in two consecutive weeks against Reading and Daniel Boone. If ever there were something to build upon, it’s their strong effort of late. It will not get any easier though as they face a good Conrad Weiser team this week.
17. Kutztown (0-3, 0-6) [Even]kutztown_high_logo
The Cougars had some issues in the first half against Wyomissing as they fell behind 42-0. However, the Cougars posted 22 points in the 2nd half against the Spartans. Could it be the start of something good? The Cougars will have a long trip to Chestnut Ridge this week as they search for their first win.
