Bellefonte has a VERY explosive Offense, if they get Johnstown in a hole early this one is over. I think the Red Raiders capture the D6 4A Championship

Yes, I like Bellefonte in this one as well. Think I will make the 10 minute drive over to Hollidaysburg and catch this one Friday night.

I always root for the Johnstown area schools come playoffs but it's nice to see a team like Bellefonte in a position to win a championship. Being really down for a number of years it's hard to root against their success at this point.

I think Johnstown will have major problems stopping Bellefonte on the ground. It's not the power running attack that BG and CH used to beat Johnstown but it's really deceptive. Dietrich is really dangerous and does a nice job commanding that offense.

Since the Mccort game Johnstown really hasn't looked interested which is hard to get, especially the wrs. They had at least 6 huge drops against BG in the 1st half that could have really changed the complexion of that game. I expect them to show up this week. It's for a championship. Austin Barber is way too big a competitor to roll over.

Both offenses can be very explosive. I'm expecting a high scoring game. In the end I think Bellefonte has too much offense. I'll take them 49-21.

Even though jtown receivers haven’t been looking overly impressive jtown will have problems if barber try’s to do it on his own needs to spread the ball around and have faith in his teammates this isn’t the high octane offense that jtown has had the past two years that’s why team play is so important

I have to disagree with everybody so far, and go with Johnstown. I saw Bellefonte play against Chestnut Ridge and they are definitely beatable. If Johnstown can stop the run, which they definitely can with the defensive front they have,they are going to cruise to the win. I’m going Johnstown over Bellefonte 35-20

Since the Red Raiders went to Deitrich at QB in week 2 Ridge is the only team to hold them under 31 points. Yeah CR may have made them look beatable but CR is arguably the best team in the area. Averaging over 400 yards and 40 ppg Bellefonte may have the best offense Johnstown has seen this season. Defensively the Red Raiders will give up some points so it may come down to some big turnovers and whoever gets the big stop on defense. Scoreboard should get a workout. I like your score LionJacket but I'm gonna take Bellefonte 35-20.

Friday's daytime high temperature is expected to be 30 in Johnstown.  By 7:00 it could be in the 20s or even teens.  Which team is prepared for that?

Yeah, the game time "feels like" temp of 17 might test how badly I really want to catch this game.
