OTTAWA LAKE — The Whiteford Bobcats will take on the Reading Rangers in Friday’s Division 8 District championship football game.
Both the Bobcats and Rangers are 10-0 and were ranked in the Top 10 in the final Associated Press (Division 7) poll of the season. It is one of just two games across the state this week that match-up undefeated teams.
Reading is led by running back Ethan LoPresto, who has 1,954 yards and 25 TDs on 154 carries. Alex Price is 48-for-77 for 752 yards passing for Reading. Both players are seniors. Other players to watch for Reading include Ben Affholter (6-2, 275), a lineman and linebacker, and his twin Nick Affholter (6-3, 302), a two-way lineman. They are juniors.
Whiteford, the defending Division 8 state champion, has won a Monroe County Region record 24 straight games.
