Week 6 Heritage Conference preview

| Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010

Penns Manor (5-0, 5-0) at United (4-1, 4-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

About Penns Manor: The Comets have found a different person to rely on every week, and, against Marion Center, it was Joey Vodopevic, who carried seven times for 101 yards and two touchdowns to help the team remain undefeated. Travis Trimble has been solid running the ball this season, with 451 yards, a 10.5 average and seven touchdowns, but he made his mark defensively last Friday with three sacks. The Comets like to fly to the ball on defense as evidenced by the fact that three players had at least 10 assists on tackles against Marion Center.

About United: The Lions only loss this season came two weeks ago, when Homer-Center built an 18-6 lead by halftime and held on for an 18-16 victory. United has been prone to starting slowly in the first half, a problem it has to overcome if it is to stay with a quality team like Penns Manor. The Lions are the defending Heritage Conference champions and defeated Penns Manor, 25-22, in the regular season in 2009. The Comets got their revenge in the playoffs, however, with a stunning 20-13 upset in the District 6 semifinals.

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.
