Pete's Top-10 Not many changes to this week's poll

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by BY PETER CAR pcar@tnonline.com in Sports

Hey, it's 80 degrees in October. I'm still wearing Sperrys and have been tempted to put on the AC.

I could take this weather for another month, but I can also keep taking easy picks that the poll has generated for the past two weeks.

Not much will change this week, but there is a big game in the MVC, that has power point ramifications all over it.

So, go lay on your hammock and find your own beach as you read this week's top-10.

1. Parkland (5-1)

Last week's rank: 1

Trojans look cemented here for awhile.

The Pick: Parkland 42- Freedom 13

2. Easton (5-1)

Last week's rank: 2

Northampton may be the most disappointing program this year.

The Pick: Easton 49- Northampton 7

3.Whitehall (5-1)

Last week's rank: 3

I still wonder why Whitehall doesn't put a logo on their helmet. Does everybody want to copy Alabama?

The Pick: Whitehall 48- Central Catholic 14

4. Bethlehem Catholic (4-2)

Last week's rank: 4

What is Slick Rob going to do if he loses to Becahi?

The Pick: Becahi 40- Nazareth 17

5. Catasauqua (6-0)

Last week's rank: 5

Revenge is on the horizon from last year's district playoff loss.

The Pick: Catty 56- Pen Argyl 13

6. Emmaus (4-2)

Last week's rank: 6

Most intriguing matchup of the weekend goes to the Hornets on homecoming. I'm guessing all the cars driving on the track will be Mercedes, BMW or Audi.

The Pick: Emmaus 31- Liberty 28

7. Eastburg South (6-0)

Last week's rank: 7

Imagine how big this game is going to be next year when both teams are in the LVC. Not.

The Pick: ESS 27- Pleasant Valley 20

8. Pleasant Valley (5-1)

Not ranked

Both schools have off on Friday to pregame.

The Pick: ESS 27- Pleasant Valley 20

9. Stroudsburg (4-2)

Last week's rank: 8

I'm thinking Pocono Mountain can do it this week, but I also thought Dieruff would shock the world last week too.

The Pick: PME 27- Stroudsburg 24

10.Southern Lehigh (5-1)

Last week's rank: 10

Remember when Wilson went to the state championship? Now they're winless.

The Pick: Solehi 40- Wilson 0

Ÿ Teams that dropped: #7 Nazareth

Ÿ Teams that entered: #9 Pleasant Valley

Ÿ Last week's record: 7-1

Ÿ Overall: 38-8
