Holy Cross at Meyers
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Holy Cross’ Josh Watters (0-0, 1st year); Meyers’ Corry Hanson (8-13, 3rd year)
Last Meeting: Meyers 40-0 in 2012
All-Time Series: Meyers leads 4-1
Quick Fact: Meyers rushed for a season-high 321 yards in last year’s game.
Scouting Holy Cross: The Crusaders have a new coach in Josh Watters. They will also have new faces throughout the lineup and not much of a roster to choose from. They have decent size up front, but again the name of the game is execution. And Holy Cross hasn’t executed well lately, losing 12 in a row.
Scouting Meyers: Everybody is pointing to Lake-Lehman as the WVC Division 2A-A favorite. Meyers, though, has been mentioned as the dark horse. The reason is the Mohawks have some good skill kids like QB Matt DeMarco, RB Nate Mahalak and TE Jacob Brominski. But it won’t matter how much they score if the defense keeps giving up bundles of points.
What To Expect: Meyers is introducing its new read-option offense so some gaffes are expected. But the Mohawks should be able to win this one comfortably, mistakes or no mistakes.
