DANVILLE - Most any coach will tell you that there are no moral victories, especially when the postseason rolls around.
Mount Carmel nose guard Vinny Candelora burst through the line and before Montoursville quarterback Aaron Cole could hand off the ball, Candelora already was in the backfield. He took the handoff instead.
FRANKLIN TWP. - They huddled together one final time, their blue helmets raised high in the air, with the nicks and mud on the white numbers still visible some 30 minutes after their season ended.
LEWISBURG - As Aaron Cole took a knee and the final seconds ticked away at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium, fullback Matt Krezmer raised both arms high into the chilly night air. Moments later a Montoursville lineman walked off the field, his face bloodied but smiling.
South Williamsport players stood under the Friday night lights as enthusiastic fans walked onto the field and repeatedly congratulated or hugged them. The players were slow to leave. Everyone wanted to savor the moment. All the hard work the players put in the last few years paid off with a spectacular performance that they likely will never forget.
DANVILLE - Justin Van Fleet stood in the middle of Danville's football field, one of two people remaining on the grass surface, and spoke with tears welling in his eyes. He offered his apologies for not getting a Loyalsock program turned around quickly enough for this year's seniors to enjoy the pinnacle he helps build the program to.
MILTON - One phone call late in the summer changed Milton's season on Friday night. George Goodwin received that call from senior linebacker Ryan Solomon and the coach's heart was probably racing that night as fast as it was following Friday night's game as he talked to Solomon waiting for Milton's version of the decision.
MUNCY - When team comes into the first round of the playoffs as the underdog after a crushing defeat in the final game of the regular season, it's pretty difficult to rebound.

The Athens Wildcats and Troy Trojans met during the regular season in a game that helped the Wildcats capture the NTL large-school title.
