Schuylkill Valley hosts Wyomissing on Friday in a game that will impact each team's District III ranking.

BERKS COUNTY -

Schuylkill Valley hosts Wyomissing on Friday in a game that will not only affect the Berks II standings, but the District III seeds as well.

The Panthers (1-3, 5-3) snapped a three-game losing streak last week with a big win at Donegal. While Jeff Chillot's team has enjoyed getting back on track, it knows it will have to refocus quick.

Wyomissing (4-0, 5-3) is a team that has won three straight and looks to be playing it's best football of the year right now.

In the current District III standings, Schuylkill Valley is ranked 5th and Wyomissing is ranked 4th. So the winner of this game will likely earn a first-round playoff game at home.

The Spartans tested themselves against a challenging non-league schedule, results which may be showing now.

Wyo is focused on stopping Schuylkill Valley tailback Nick Scheidt, who has already eclipsed the 1,000 yard rushing mark this year.

Wyomissing/Schuylkill Valley will be featured on the Big Ticket Friday.
