The notable change this week is Haverford jumping from No. 4 to No. 3 while Springfield slides to No. 4. Haverford’s defense is sketchy, but offensively the Fords are tops in the county in points and touchdowns.
I realize Springfield is undefeated in the Central League and Haverford is not, but I think that after you get past Ridley and Episcopal Academy, the rest of the Super 7 is a crap shoot and you can probably rank those teams in any which way, or at least make your own arguments.
Cardinal O’Hara, after a terrible loss to Roman Catholic, falls to No. 6. I contemplated putting Academy Park ahead of Interboro this week. AP is on the cusp and they certainly deserve to be in the Super 7, but I couldn’t justify taking a team off the list. That includes O’Hara.
Why isn’t Interboro ranked higher, or at least ahead of the team they beat, Springfield? I don’t think Interboro is better than O’Hara or Garnet, and Springfield, as well all know, defeated one of those teams.
1. Ridley (7-0)
2. Episcopal Academy (6-0)
3. Haverford High (6-1)
4. Springfield (6-1)
5. Garnet Valley (5-2)
6. Cardinal O’Hara (4-3)
7. Interboro (6-1)
