Three of the four local junior football programs – Duryea, West Pittston and Wyoming/West Wyoming/Exeter (WWWE) -- are in the Wyoming Valley West Conference.

The Pittston Junior Patriots are in the Wyoming Valley Junior Football Conference.

The Wyoming Valley Conference is spilt into North and South Divisions of six teams each and 10 of the 12 programs have A level teams. In the Wyoming Valley West Conference only three of the 10 teams – West Pittston Duryea and Plymouth – have A teams.

Today Pittston and West Pittston have games against programs without A teams so they arranged to play each other.

So there's an old-fashioned rivalry game today -- Pittston at West Pittston. It will start approximately 2 p.m. after the West Pittston – Swoyersville B game.

Last Sunday the Pittston C, B, and A teams lost to the Valley Chiefs, that's the Conyngham Valley near Hazleton. In the A-game the Junior Patriots won 30-22.

Today the Pittston B and C teams play Plains at West Park.

Last Sunday in the Wyoming Valley West Conference the West Pittston Rams B and C teams both defeated Kingston.

For the B team quarterback Patrick Musinski was 1 for 4 passing completion with one 2-point conversion.. Dominic DeLuca rushed for over 90 yards with a kick off TD return of 65 yards. DeLuca scored 3 TDs, Cameron Carr had 1 TD and Daniel Wiedl had three 2-point coversions. Rams had strong defense behind the blocking of FJ Braccini, Dante Bovani, Colby Thomas, Derek Ambrosino and center Josh Guilford.

Duryea spilt the B and C games with Kingston Township and won the D game.
