Scoreless Tie

Thursday, November 03, 2011
In Two Big Games in District 1 AAAA Rick O'Brien takes the insipid stance that both Downingtown East and Pennsbury win. A Pennsbury win I can understand; if they were playing at Heartbreak Ridge, I would say the game was Neshaminy hands down, but the game is in Fairless Hills. Mark Schmidt may be able to get the Redskins to pull out the win and get into the playoffs, though. Not that Neshaminy has shown the ability to play with the big boys this year, and their prize for a win would be a re-match with Council Rock South. CR South crushed Neshaminy in the first game. Downingtown East, however, has to go to West Chester and beat a Henderson team that takes sole possession of the league title with a win. By my calculation, a Henderson win would vault them to the 8th seed and result in a rematch with East the next week. This would be the most interesting finish to alter the District 1 AAAA bracket. For this reason alone, I am picking Henderson.
