TOP DISTRICT GAMES

Matchup: Shippensburg (3-1) at Edinboro (3-1)

When: 2 p.m.

Where: Sox Harrison Stadium, Edinboro

On air: WSYC-AM (88.7), WFSE-FM (88.9)

The skinny: The winner will keep the heat on NCAA Division II No. 4 Indiana (Pa.), as the race heats up for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division crown. Edinboro is rolling after a 31-20 victory last week over previously unbeaten then-No. 16 East Stroudsburg. The Fighting Scots got 142 yards on 19 carries from RB Brandon Munson. No. 22 Shippensburg suffered its first loss, a 33-20 decision to West Chester, and in the process, had its four-game streak end for limiting opponents to less than 100 yards rushing.

Matchup: Stony Brook (2-1) at Robert Morris (3-1)

When: 1:30 p.m.

Where: Moon Area High School Stadium, Moon

On air: WPIT-AM 730

The skinny: Heading into this key early Northeast Conference game, Robert Morris is off to a 3-1 start for the second consecutive season following a 36-6 victory over St. Francis (Pa.) in the Colonials' home opener. RB Sam Dorsett gained 165 yards rushing -- his fourth 100-yard game in as many games. Stony Brook dropped to No. 7 in The Sports Network NCAA Division I-AA Mid-Major poll after watching its school-record seven-game winning streak stopped by unbeaten Monmouth (N.J.), 20-14. It also was the Seawolves first loss in eight games since beginning play at its new home facility.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
