North Penn 41 - Pennridge 8

As Kevin Cooney notes in the Intel's Knights roll past Rams to tune up for postseason, North Penn has won 24 straight SOL Continental Division contests since the Suburban One realignment in 2008. Cooney also describes how the Knights are "kicking on all cylinders." Of course, before week 10, Joe Santoloquito was saying the same thing about Ridley in Ridley peaking at the right time. Then Ridley squeaked out a 14-7 win on Friday against 5-5 Upper Darby (with only 2 wins against AAAA teams). Not that it matters. Ridley is still the #1 seed. North Penn will be 2 or 3 depending on the outcome of the St. Joe's Prep-Roman Catholic game tonight. Rick O'Brien is picking Roman to win, despite the Prep's 31-15 win 2 weeks ago).

Of course, neither O'Brien or Santoliquito has struck me as having particularly good insight into the southeastern PA high school football psyche. Perhaps I appreciate Kyle Berger's SOL perspective more than O'Brien's Philadelphia and Santoloquito's Delco perspectives. Kyle provides his District 1 bracket on Berger seems to be leaning toward a Prep win tonight putting North Penn in the playoffs as the #2 seed.
