JJHuddle’s Division VI Power Poll: Wynford runs win streak to 45 – barely


JJHuddle Power Poll Division VI

For the second straight week the Top 10 teams in the JJHuddle Division VI Power Poll went undefeated. The biggest scare though came from Bucyrus Wynford, which stretched it’s state-leading regular season win streak to 45 games on a TD pass with 21 seconds left. Here’s how the rankings look…




1. Delphos St. John’s (7-0)
The Blue Jays have beaten Anna, St. Henry, Versailles and Coldwater in succession by the combined score of 124-26. Only Anna has reached double-digits. How many other teams in D-VI could do that? Maybe one – Marion Local. The Blue Jays and Flyers hook up next week in a colossal small school meeting. This week DSJ is at Fort Recovery (2-5). Previous: 1

3. Marion Local (7-0)
The Flyers face Delphos St. John’s next week in what will be a Midwest Athletic Conference championship game. This week though Marion Local has to get past host Coldwater (4-3). The Flyers are coming off a 55-0 win over Parkway.  Previous: 3

4. Bucyrus Wynford (7-0)
