The skinny: St. Joseph’s will look to finish its first season at .500 against a team that also has a first this season.

Ridway/Johnsonburg is a co-op team between the two high schools, playing for the first time this season.

Ridgway is battling to make the District 9 playoffs. The Elkers are led by quarterback Ben McDonald, who has rushed for 647 yards and 11 touchdowns and has thrown for five touchdowns.

St. Joseph’s will play for the first time in two weeks. The Wolves received a forfeit last week when Calvary Christian Academy chose not to play.

In a 28-7 win over Allegheny-Clarion Valley two weeks ago, quarterback Phil Fenstermacker tossed a pair of touchdown passes to Mike Jabco and Kahsim Buey ran for 132 yards.
