Among the rain and cold of last week, area teams were able to get in some games, including many local battles.

In the early stages of the Tri-Valley Athletic Association campaign, Millersburg (3-0 TVAA, 4-1 overall) and Upper Dauphin Area (2-0 TVAA, 5-2 overall) currently hold the two spots in the East Division that would qualify them for the league playoffs. Susquenita (3-0 TVAA) and Juniata (2-1 TVAA) head the West Division.
