BC, Schuylkill Valley ready for rematch

Published On: Nov 08 2012 08:17:49 PM CST

Berks Catholic will host Schuylkill Valley in the District playoffs, a rematch between a pair of Berks II contenders this year.

When Berks Catholic met Schuylkill Valley in Leesport earlier this year, the Saints got out of town with a one-point victory after stopping a late two-point conversion.

The Panthers have been hungry for a rematch ever since.

Berks Catholic is coming off it's only loss of the season, a 14-0 shutout at the hands of Wyomissing last weekend.

But BC was quick to shake off the setback and get back at it this week in preparation for another league opponent. Only this time, it's the first round of the District playoffs.

Head coach Rick Keeley is challenging his team to be ready for a tough fight against the Panthers. A fight that his players know they can win.

Schuylkill Valley has no reservations for a second loss to the Saints.

The old saying "time heals all wounds" does not apply to the Panthers. They remember what the Saints did and won't have to wait around to fix it.

Schuylkill Valley  lost to both Berks Catholic and Wyomissing this season, two painful games the Panthers could have very well won.

With the Spartans a possible second round opponent, Schuylkill Valley knows it's been given a second chance. A chance that's fit for the record books as it would be the school's first-ever District win.
