Extra Points: Mid Penn Colonial Div. not decided

Shippensburg's football team still has a stranglehold on first place in the Mid Penn Colonial Division with an unblemished record.

But after a few significant games this weekend, the hunt for the crown isn't over just yet. After five straight victories, Big Spring (5-2) fell to Waynesboro (4-3), and the teams now both sit at 3-1 in the Colonial Div. The Bulldogs hold the second spot due to overall record.

Also in Week 6, Northern York (4-5) picked up a shutout victory over Mifflin County (2-5) to even both of their records at 2-2 in the division.

The undefeated Greyhounds still have Northern, West Perry and Big Spring left on their schedule, so the journey to the top won't be easy.

TWO-WAY THREAT: It's no secret that Forrest Rhyne is a solid linebacker. You don't get recruited by Villanova by being OK.

But the Waynesboro senior has also proven himself as an offensive threat this season at fullback. Rhyne is second on the team in rushing yards with 264 on 42 carries. In a win against Big Spring this week, Rhyne amassed 59 yards on just six carries.

He does continue to lead the team in tackles. For the season, he has 68 total tackles.

PLETHORA OF TARGETS: With Chambersburg's struggling offense, the Trojans have to try something.

In Friday's loss to Cedar Cliff, quarterback Tyler Collier had a lot of different options. In nine completions, Collier had six different receivers. Clay Myers (3 catches, 15 yards) was the only Trojan to have multiple catches. Other receivers credited with a catch were Andrew Shetter, Sean Vessah, Jack Kunckleman, Spencer Seaman and Seth Brouse.

CENTURY CLUB: This week, Shippensburg's Adam Houser came within spitting distance of earning the first Double-Century Club bid. He was just shy of 200 rushing yards, finishing with 190 on 19 carries.

Waynesboro's Brady Beckner continued his Century Club streak, earning a spot for a third week in a row with 159 yards on 13 carries.

James Buchanan's Cormac Houpt (140 yards, 16 carries) had his best performance since Week 1, and, after a two-week absence, Greencastle's Demetrius Burton returns to the Century Club with a 130-yard performance on the ground.
