Kennett racked up over 400 yards of total offense in a 20-0 win over Twin Valley and are 3-0 for the first time in history. Now, truth be told, the Blue Demons’ early schedule does not match North Penn’s, but progress is progress and head coach Scott Green has done a wonderful job in his two-plus years at the helm.
Big week in Chester County coming up as Downingtown East travels to Coatesville, Rustin goes to Unionville and Malvern hosts the top-ranked school in Class AAAA, La Salle. The two Ches-Mont League games will likely decide the two division champions and fans should not miss these games because they are rivalry games that really mean something.
Octorara and head coach Jed King went to Pequea Valley and beat up on a friend of mine in Evan Breisblatt and the Braves, 25-6. Octorara got a huge game from quarterback Alex Gooden, who ran for 202 yards on 18 carries. It was nice to see the Braves bounce back from a tough loss the week before to Bishop Shanahan.
Downingtown West goes to Camden, Delaware and bad things happen. Head coach Mike Milano gets tossed from the game and the Whippets get called for everything. No surprise there, it has been happening to schools who go to the first state for sometime. It is really a shame that a Ches-Mont school has to go to Delaware to find a game instead of playing a crossover game within the Ches-Mont League.
Former West Chester Henderson assistant and Marple Newtown head coach Jim Smith passed away last week. “Smitty” will be missed by all who had the good fortune of coming in contact with him. They say the good die young and his passing really proves that. Rest in peace, my friend.
