1. It has been a frustrating few days for Annville-Cleona. First, the Dutch abandoned a 23-13 decision to compete with Elco on Friday, and when the final D3-3A power standings were released on Saturday, AC ended up on line 9 – as the first. team to participate in the playoffs. It was a disappointment. But no worries, as the Dutch’s postponed non-league game against Schuylkill Valley was still on the schedule, as the make-up clash of Week 11. So at least AC – and its seniors – would get one last game. Until… Schuylkill Valley qualifies for the Eastern Pennsylvania 3A Conference Playoff game against Nanticoke, then the Panthers called off their makeup meeting against the Dutch, leaving AC to scramble for an opponent so that he can play a maximum of 10 games in the regular season. At the last check, the Dutch were looking for a match this coming weekend.


2. A week 11 game has been added for sure: Garden Spot will be playing Elco on Thursday or Friday. Stay tuned for the official date. Garden Spot needed a game when its Section 3 makeup date against Donegal was canned because the Indians made the D3-4A bracket. Elco needed a game when his non-League 1 makeup date against Susquenita was sacked because the Blackhawks made the D3-2A support. So the Spartans and Raiders – who faced each other in August – will have an out-of-league party in Myerstown later this week. … Another non-league makeup game scheduled for Friday: Pequea Valley will host Biglerville.
