Pete’s Top-10: Blue Eagles stay on top

Wednesday, November 27, 2019 by peter car pcar@tnonline.com in Sports

It’s finally the end of the football season and for our viewing area, this is an earlier exit for Lehigh Valley teams than we’ve been accustomed to in recent memory. Bethlehem Catholic’s run to the state semifinals over the past couple of years helped prolong the season after Thanksgiving, but with Nazareth falling to St. Joe’s Prep and Southern Lehigh getting bounced by Archbishop Wood, that leaves us with only Turkey day games this week.

So, enjoy the start of the holiday season and thanks for following throughout the year.

Here’s a look at our final poll.

1. Nazareth (12-2)

2. Parkland (10-3)

.

3. Freedom (10-2)

4. Central Catholic (8-5)

5. Northwestern (10-2)

6. Bethlehem Catholic (7-5)

7. Easton (7-5)

More misery for the Rovers.

The Pick: Phillipsburg 28- Easton 21

8. Northampton (9-2)

Kids should have little trouble this week against Catty.

The Pick: Northampton 42- Catasauqua 7

9. Southern Lehigh (12-2)

10. Emmaus (6-5)

Last week’s record: 2-0

Overall record: 75-17
