    My upset special is Hickory over Villa. Hickory could of beat Franklin twice. I think this is their time.

    I was a little surprised that d10 would make Lakeview come all the way up to Mercyhurst College to play MP … also that Fairvew travels down to Sharon to play WM. I assumed that would be a double header around Edinboro/Meadville.

    Also, it looks like d10 is trying set up a double header on Friday night between AA boys and AAA boys. They probably would LOVE it if it was West Middlesex vs MP followed by Girard vs GM. Talk about a packed gym at Gannon/Edinboro.

    It’s a tough draw for Hickory. Villa has arguably one of the top defenses in the western part of the state.

    What does gball stand for? Goofball. How in the world can you make the statement that Hickory could have beat Franklin twice? Obviously you were not at either game as Hickory was dominated from start to finish both times.Yes they could have beaten them twice only because they played them two times however they did not. You have zero credibility with that kind of statement.
