The skinny: Having won two straight, Penns Valley has entered the District 6 Class AA playoff picture. The Rams are 10th in the latest standings and need to keep winning to have a shot at one of the eight playoff spots.
Penns Valley is coming off a 21-7 win against Bellefonte, a game in which the Rams struggled until late.
Quarterback Cameron Tobias leads a solid offensive attack, having thrown for 1,366 yards and 10 touchdowns with just two interceptions in 159 attempts. Wyatt Sharp rumbled for two touchdowns against the Raiders. Luke Weaver’s six receptions pushed his season total to 26.
Bucktail has shown its inconsistency the past two weeks. The Bucks suffered a mystifying 12-8 loss to Montgomery County, which ended a 21-game losing streak.
The Bucks held the ball for the majority of the game, but gave up 30-yard touchdown run with a little more than two minutes remaining.
