CURWENSVILLE, Pa. – District 9 Class 1A seeding and possibly even a bye week in the playoffs is at stake when Clarion-Limestone makes the hour trip across Interstate 80 to take on Curwensville on the Explore Radio Kerle Tire Football Game of the Week.

The winner of the contest will have the inside track on the No. 2 seed in the upcoming D9 1A playoffs, and with the potential of only six teams entering that could come with a bye week in the opening round.

Both teams enter the contest at 6-2 with both teams’ losses coming to Smethport and Elk County Catholic.

The squads are throwbacks in the fact that they like to run the football.

Curwensville does so behind the trip of Blake Passarelli, Cole Bressler and Avery Francisco, while C-L looks to Austin Newcomb and Ayden Wiles to carry the load.

The Golden Tide are coming off a short week having beaten Otto-Eldred Saturday night in Duke Center, while C-L topped Port Allegany Friday at home.

This is the next-to-the-last regular-season came for both squads with both finishing up against Class 2A schools next week.

C-L travels to Clarion in the third annual – and perhaps last – Black & Blue Brawl, while Curwensville hosts Brockway.
