Garnet Valley’s dynasty is at stake Wednesday night when the Jaguars host Marple Newtown for the Central League championship.
Coach Mike Ricci’s Jaguars are going for a three-peat.
With the exception of a 29-28 double-overtime win at Radnor in 2018, and a thrilling 35-28 home victory over Haverford last fall … it hasn’t even been close when it comes to the Jaguars and their Central League title streak. This season, they’ve outscored their five Central League 6A division opponents by a combined score of 239-26.
The other big game in the Central League is scheduled for Saturday at 11 a.m. when Haverford (4-1) hosts Strath Haven (4-1) to determine the league’s third-place finisher. Other crossover games are Penncrest (1-4) at Upper Darby (3-2) Wednesday evening and Radnor (3-2) at Ridley (3-2) Friday night.
