THE NO. 2 spot in Class AA poll hasn't been kind to teams in the past two weeks. Class AAA No. 8 Wheeling Park has doled out consecutive losses to Keyser (1-1) and Bridgeport (1-1) in the first two weeks of the season when each of those teams held the No. 2 spot.
Park's Liam Casey kicked a 25-yard field goal to beat the Indians 17-14 in Bridgeport on Friday night.
Poll voters weren't daunted by the loss, apparently. Bridgeport remained at No. 2
