The Falcons got a taste of a strong passer in last week's 32-23 win over Frankford. Tim DiGiorgio connected on 12 of 23 throws for 150 yards and two scores.
Lauletta's top targets are wideouts Jay Harris, a Michigan State recruit; Dayne Foley; fullback Chris Beals, and tight end Mike Reichwein.
Pennsbury's defensive secondary, sure to be tested by Lauletta, has cornerbacks Anthony Bullaro and Ryon Muse, and safeties Brendan Campbell and Bobby Walls.
For East, tailback Ryley Angeline is back after sitting out against Roman with a high-ankle sprain.
A positive for the Falcons is the expected return on offense of bulldozing fullback Daquan Mack. Previously, the Massachusetts recruit was limited to time at defensive end because of a "lower-body" injury.
With the Cougars' defense, led by end Elijah Griffin and linebacker Nelson Lee Lucas-Murphy, holding firm, look for the hosts to turn back the Falcons.
Pick: East, 31-14.
Last week: 9-2. Overall: 18-4 (.818).
Conestoga (1-1 overall, 0-1 Central League) at No. 8 Ridley (2-0, 1-0), 7. Conestoga has a feared pass-catch duo in Harvard-bound quarterback Joe Viviano and wideout Andrew DeStefano. Pick: Ridley, 27-13.
Frankford (1-1) vs. No. 6 Archbishop Wood (1-1), at William Tennent, 7. The Pioneers hope the Vikings are still reeling from last week's loss to North Penn. Pick: Wood, 35-12.
Archbishop Ryan (1-1) at Bensalem (1-1), 7. The Raiders have been boosted by the efforts of senior tailback Jeremiah Agrio, formerly at Pennsbury. Pick: Ryan, 20-14, in overtime.
Souderton (1-1) at No. 4 Neshaminy (2-0), 7. Nate Hall, coming over from Monsignor Bonner, is a dangerous rusher for the Redskins. Pick: Neshaminy, 28-14.
West Chester Henderson (2-0) at Plymouth Whitemarsh (2-0), 7:30. For the Colonials, fullback Corey Kelly and tailback Terry Brown make up a solid one-two punch. Pick: Plymouth Whitemarsh, 23-21.
State College (2-0) vs. Father Judge (1-1), at Lincoln, 2. The difference here is sophomore rusher Samir Bullock, who is coming off a 235-yard showing for Judge. Pick: Judge, 27-20.
Germantown Academy (0-0) at Hill School (0-0), 2:30. The Patriots must keep a close eye on Blues wide receiver and safety Adam Regensburg. Pick: Hill, 23-10.
Cardinal O'Hara (2-0) vs. No. 1 La Salle (2-0), at Springfield (Montco), 3. The Lions, lacking offensive rhythm, struggle against a stout defense. Pick: La Salle, 34-7.
West Catholic (0-1) vs. Bonner-Prendergast (1-1), at Upper Darby, 3. Rebounding from an opening OT loss, the Burrs nip the Friars. Pick: West, 21-20.
Glen Mills (0-2) vs. George Washington (2-0), at Northeast, 6. Key for the Eagles is slowing sophomore speedster Khalil Ameer-Bey. Pick: GW, 26-13.
