Welcome to the District 2 wrestling forum. We are the voice of high school wrestling and football in Northeastern, Pennsylvania.
I am assuming GAR 58 is C. K. I think we need to get more people out there for Dunmore up in Scranton. You need to bring back the pit and make sure we're loud on Friday. Dunmore always brings their crowd. Bring back all the alumni for this one and then some. We can win this one! I'll be ready to support.
Don't bring my religion into this. Don't even go there. My religion has nothing to do with this.
And I don't vote along party lines. I vote for the best candidate, in my view. That said, why would I think GAR is going to win just because they are a WVC team?
I picked Lehman to beat GAR because I firmly believed they could beat GAR. Lehman played a terrible game, and GAR forced four turnovers. Despite that, it came down to the last play to finally know GAR won.
I picked Hanover to beat GAR, and again, it took GAR batting down a pass at the end of the game for GAR to seal the victory. GAR did not exactly "slaughter them alive". They made the plays to win the game. It was not a convincing victory.
So, even though I was wrong on these two games, I was close. I know, "close" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades...
I repeat - GAR won the games that needed to be won to put them into the District final game. They deserve to be there.
Now on to Dunmore. In my opinion, they are the better team. I am not a GAR fan (and I am not saying I hate GAR, I am just not a fan. I graduated from Coughlin, and I now am involved at Lehman. So I am not a GAR fan.) So, just as Frank makes picks, I am picking that Dunmore will beat GAR.
I'd also have to pick Dunmore.
Here's an idea - Does anyone from Hanover have an idea on this one?
They played both.
I am a GAR fan and backer, but unlike Frank with his WVW picks and rankings (no offense Frank) there comes a time when reality sets in. I would like nothing more than fro GAR to pull off the huge upset, and it would be a huge upset if GAR was to win this one, but I definatly think that this game will be a season ender for GAR closer than most peoploe think, but Dunmore comes out on top of this one.
Dunmore 28 GAR 14
One thing to remember.
Dunmore doesn't run up the score.
I've been to all of their games this year.
They've been close enough to the Mercy Rule in most of their games - but never got there. And they play LOTS of kids.
I believe they don't get into the Mercy rule on purpose most of the time - to get the younger kids the playing time.
Which makes them better in the upcoming years.
