Every week, the thought of playoff football around the Chartiers Valley community becomes more and more real. With a win tomorrow night, it could finally become a reality.
If the Colts can pull off a win against Central Valley, they will most likely be heading back to the postseason for the first time since 2011, and the first time ever under coach Niel Loebig.
“The excitement and thought of getting back in is unreal right now,” said junior Sean McCrerey. “The school will be so alive if they can accomplish the goal.”
The Colts will have a more positive match up this time around than they did last year against Central Valley, when Jordan Whitehead ran it like crazy, and the defense shutdown the Colts offense.
The Colts’ veteran offensive line will hold down the fort as usual, while the defense will be able to take advantage of a younger Central Valley offense. Chartiers Valley’s offense will also be able to be more productive against a younger secondary that lost many proven players to graduation.
As of October 15, this is what the WPIAL AAA Parkway Conference looked like:
Depending on the outcome of the game, the Colts could have a shot at moving into second place in the standings, and most certainly solidifying their place as a team that would clinch a playoff spot, and make some noise going forward.
Overall, this Friday night is one of the most highly anticipated in recent memory, and the community is looking for a positive outcome.
