Lake-Lehman at Old Forge
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Lehman’s Jerry Gilsky (18-14, 4th year); Old Forge’s Mike Schuback (89-40, 12th year)
Last Meeting: Old Forge 50-14 in 2013
All-Time Series: Old Forge leads 3-0
Quick Fact: Lehman surrendered at least 50 points for the first time in 26 games when the teams played last season.
Scouting Lehman: OK, it’s time to see if Lake-Lehman lives up to its billing. The Black Knights have tough RBs in Dustin Jones and Brady Butler and the WVC’s biggest lineman in 6-foot-6, 315-pound Pete Borum. The rest of the cast is strong although probably not as deep as hoped. Staying healthy is a big key to success.
Scouting Old Forge: The Blue Devils lost their top rusher … and their starting quarterback … and the defense lost plenty of talent. So what, this program – for as small as it is – is impressive at reloading. And the rabid fanbase will makes it a difficult place to win.
What To Expect: Even if Old Forge isn’t as strong on paper as in 2012, the Blue Devils will be a very stern test for Lehman at a very tough place to win.
