The Curwensville Golden Tide are looking to not only end the regular season on a winning note, but they can also wrap up the Alleghany Mountain League South Division title this Friday night. The only team standing in their way is the Kane Wolves.
Curwensville has clinched a playoff spot in the District 9 playoff race, and is currently the no.3 seed behind both Cameron County and Redbank Valley. This would not change because the Tide hold the tie-breaker having beaten both Elk County Catholic and Coudersport, who are currently seeded no.4 and no.5, respectively. What Curwensville has to gain is the AML South title with a victory.
In order to win the game and the title, Curwensville will have to rely on what has gotten them to this point, which is a balanced offensive attack. Look for key performances from Jed Greslick, who carried for 136 yards and four touchdowns last week against Johnsonburg, along with quarterback David Kalgren. Kalgren is coming off a 286-yard game against Johnsonburg that included a touchdown pass to Jesse Hoover and a rushing touchdown.
Kane is coming off a 41-15 rout of Brockway, a game that saw the Wolves rack up 524 yards of total offense. Kane is currently seeded no.3 in the D-9 Class AA playoff race, and is looking to officially clinch that spot should they win against Curwensville.
Keep an eye on Kane quarterback Kenny Kane, who is coming off a five touchdown performance against the Rovers along with running back Ross Nicholson, who rushed for 172 yards.
Playoff spots, division titles, and bragging rights are all on the line this Friday night. Kickoff between what is sure to be an exciting high school football game is 7 p.m.
