Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

The Pa­tri­ots will host the Bat­tling Bulls for the sec­ond time this sea­son, and have the re­venge card af­ter Glen Mills won the first one in pun­ish­ing fash­ion, 42-26. The trio of QB Rob Geiss, run­ning back Mark DeRober­tis and re­ceiver Ryan Hub­ley gives Great Val­ley a chance in most games. Hub­ley leads the area with 43 catches and 927 yards, Geiss leads the area with 2,176 pass­ing yards and is tied for tops with 18 TD throws and DeRober­tis has 1022 to­tal yards and 14 TDs. Since giv­ing up 42 points to the Bulls, Great Val­ley has held teams under 20 points, on av­er­age. The Pa­triot se­niors have been to the past two district ti­tle games, win­ning in 2014, so the mo­ment will likely not be too big for them. Ju­nior run­ning back Quadir Gib­son had a mon­ster game the first con­test, run­ning for 176 of the 350 yards on the ground for Glen Mills. He will gar­ner plenty of at­ten­tion, but the strat­egy should stay the same for the Bulls. Great Val­ley has al­lowed an av­er­age of 323 rush yards and 106 of 181 points, de­fen­sively, in its four losses. Glen Mills doesn’t throw a ton, but if it can find enough to keep the Pats from load­ing the box ev­ery play, run­ning lanes will be there.
