Friday night's Perkiomen Valley at Spring-Ford PAC-10 showdown highlights the area's Week 3 slate. Here's what The Poopster thinks will happen:


Hill School (0-0) at Germantown Academy (0-1)
Coach Grey Simpson and the Rams have suffered a couple of tough beats to GA over the past two years (23-20 in 2011 and 7-6 last year). The Poopster has an inkling that might change this time around ... Hill School 14-13.

Phoenixville (0-2) at Owen J. Roberts (0-2)
This is a tough one for the Poopster to figure out, though someone is going to pick up a much-needed win. He's going to flip the coin and say ... Phoenixville 20-14.


Tower Hill (Del.) Academy (1-0) at Perkiomen School (1-0)
The Panthers opened their season in successful fashion with a 40-8 thumping of Carson Long (The Poopster had 41-7 in that game, btw). This one will be a lot tougher ... Tower Hill 27-21.

Perkiomen Valley (2-0) at Spring-Ford (1-1)
The Rasaan Stewart-led Vikings have been unstoppable on offense and downright stingy on defense, while the Rams righted the ship last week with a 34-0 win over Southern (Philadelphia). The Poopster thinks the S-F DL duo of Robby Varner and Mason Romano will cause some mayhem, but PV still has too many weapons ... Perkiomen Valley 34-21.

Pope John Paul II (0-2) at Pottstown (0-2)
In another battle of teams searching for a much-needed win, the Poopster expects the scoreboard at Grigg Memorial Field to get a workout. ... Pottstown 40-35.

Pottsgrove (2-0) at Upper Perkiomen (0-2)
The Falcons' first-team defense hasn't given up a point, while RB Marquis Barefield leads a potent group of skill players against a Tribe defense that has struggled thus far ... Pottsgrove 42-6.

Manheim Central (2-0) at Daniel Boone (1-1)
The Barons have won all three previous meetings with the Blazers, who opened some eyes with a 35-7 win over Owen J. Roberts last week ... Manheim Central 35-14.


Boyertown (2-0) at Methacton (0-2)
Through two weeks, the Bears are putting up the kinds of offensive numbers that would make even Chip Kelly do a double take. The Poopster expects that trend to continue ... Boyertown 41-13.

Last week's record: 6-2 (75.0 percent)
Season: record: 14-5 (73.7 percent)
