A total flip of the script from an offensive explosion to an incredible defensive performance. West gave up two scores on very short fields late in the second quarter (Interception and shanked punt), but otherwise PV couldn't move the ball at all. Only 129 total yards for PV (43 in the second half) to 267 for West, who also struggled to move the ball most of the night, and came up short on a couple of first half drives. One ended with a goal line stand by PV and the other with a dropped hold on a FG attempt. West did finally put together a long drive in the second half to take the lead, mixing up the run game with some timely throws from Cooper. Game was decided by a missed PAT for PV, on a snap that rolled back and never made it to the holder. Weather was certainly a factor as it was pretty heavy snow and gusty wind for most of the first half. McFadden over 100 yards receiving and Cherubini was the leading rusher for West, he also had a big 4th down conversion to ice the game down to the PV 8 yard line.

Rematch with Garnet Valley up next, GV won the first 14-7, scoring with a minute left while trailing 7-6. Should be a great one... West playing with serious house money at this point, from 11th seed to the championship game (state quarterfinals). Hats off to GV, losing so many to graduation and their legendary coach, and they just line up and go 12-0 so far.

I like West in this. They have a few losses but battle tested. This should be the beginning of Suburban 1 power again.

That's a nice win Bucks, PV was definitely battle tested (well coached) and you guys are road warriors of late. Nice.
G-Val is a brute at home but good luck and heath there in what should be a hard fight. Nasty night with rain forecast. I'm still recovering from a incredible display in York watching Harrisburg play insanely well.

West may have a serios injury on a key player from last weeks game. Hope what I heard is not true.

Two GV starting safeties went down during the game and did not return. Both double as change of pace backs on offense. Not sure of their status but would be a shame for injuries to influence the outcome for either team.

Injuries are part of the deal when you get this deep into the playoffs. Should be a close game, but beating Garnet valley is a tough task. They are 67 - 2 over the last 6 years against anybody not named Coatesville or St Joe's prep.
