Written by Ryan Riordan on .

Not only does Blackhawk have the biggest positive difference in wins from this season to last (+10) in the Open Class, it also has the biggest goal differential change.

Last season, Blackhawk finished with a -12 goal differential. This season, the Cougars are at +94. The +106 difference bests Hollidaysburg (+85), Keystone Oaks (+69) and Indiana (+55).

Blackhawk is on pace to more than double its goal output from last season. The Cougars scored 74 goals in 20 games (3.7 per game) in 2011-12, but already have 138 in 18 games (7.7). The Cougars have three games remaining.

Blackhawk is one of six teams, along with Wheeling Park, Ford City, Indiana, Greensburg Salem and Hollidaysburg, averaging more goals per game than Quigley did last season when it led the category at 7.5 goals per contest.
