Meyers (1-1) at Lackawanna Trail (2-0)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Meyers’ Corry Hanson (9-14, 3rd year); Trail’s Steve Jervis (46-60, 11th year)

Last Meeting: Trail 35-12 in 2012

All-Time Series: Trail leads 3-0

Quick Fact: Trail piled up 428 yards of offense in last year’s game.

Scouting Meyers: Meyers scored on a 90-yard TD run by QB Matt DeMarco in the first quarter and then everything went black in a 49-6 loss to Old Forge last Friday. The rushing attack, Meyers’ staple, averaged 2 yards on its other 24 carries. The passing game lost yardage when it tried. Meanwhile the run defense was shredded for 10.8 yards per carry.

Scouting Trail: The Lions are positioning themselves as the dark horse for the D2-A title, right behind Dunmore and Old Forge. They’ve received incredible balance from the offense so far, including in last Friday’s 54-40 win over Hanover Area. QB Vic Mallory has thrown the ball well, while a trio of backs has been strong. But allowing 40 points to Hanover Area – a team not expected to have a strong offense – is troubling.

What To Expect: Trail isn’t as strong as Old Forge, but has enough firepower to make it a tough night for Meyers. The Mohawks need to forget last Friday and play to their capabilities
