BERKS COUNTY - The Wilson West Lawn and Governor Mifflin football teams are in the driver's seat to repeat as league champions. But the Bulldogs and Mustangs are being careful not to get too complacent.
Wilson (4-0, 7-0) is coming off a close win over Lancaster Catholic. The 24-17 victory sealed the Bulldogs' 40th-straight within Section I of the Lancaster-Lebanon League.
But head coach Doug Dahms was not pleased with the performance, and has made it a point to keep his team focused as it comes down the home stretch.
Wilson will visit Manheim Township on Friday before welcoming Penn Manor to Gurski Stadium next week. These next two games will essentially determine if Wilson will win a 6th-consecutive Section I title.
Governor Mifflin (4-0, 5-2) is coming off a 35-0 shutout victory at Reading High. But head coach Mick Vecchio says his team was not too pleased with the way it performed.
Much like Wilson, coach Vecchio is making sure his team knows that it has to improve if it wants to win another Berks Section I title.
The Mustangs have won 4-straight, including wins over contenders Exeter and Muhlenberg. Mifflin hosts Pottsville this week with a huge showdown against Conrad Weiser looming in week 10.
