2019 Pequea Valley at Annville-Cleona Football

Tyler Long (22) of Annville-Cleona is tackled by Pequea Valley's Andrew Weaver (27) during L-L League week 7 football action at Annville-Cleona High School Stadium in Annville on Monday, October 7, 2019.

It’s time for the penultimate week of Lancaster-Lebanon League football – yes, Week Nine. Next week’s games conclude the regular season.

A tussle of particular interest falls in Section Three this week, as Donegal travels to Lancaster Catholic.

The Crusaders stand alone atop the section race. The Indians, meanwhile, have lost two in a row to fall out of sole possession of the lead. A Donegal win here means the teams would share the section lead.

As always, the LNP/LancasterOnline staff is on board to offer its predictions about that game and all of Friday night's showdowns.
