Ligonier Valley and Saltsburg made leaps in the PIAA District 6 football rankings after big wins Friday.

The unbeaten Rams (7-0), who clinched their fourth consecutive Heritage Conference championship with a 46-0 victory against Marion Center, moved past Bellwood-Antis into second place behind Richland in Class 2A.

Despite the loss to Ligonier Valley, Marion Center (5-2) stayed in fifth place.

In Class A, Saltsburg fell from eighth to sixth after defeating Homer-Center, 27-26. Homer-Center (5-2) dropped to third place as Portage jumped to the top spot to replace Bishop Guilfoyle, which lost to Richland.

Unbeaten State College (7-0) stayed No. 1 in Class 6A after its big win against Harrisburg.

Hollidaysburg (3-4) remained the top team in 5A, Clearfield (6-1) from District 9 is the top 4A team and Bald Eagle Area (6-1) is No. 1 in 3A.

District 6 isn’t strictly teams from the district. There are also teams from District 8 (Pittsburgh City League) and District 9.
