Coughlin at Tunkhannock

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Coughlin’s Ciro Cinti (40-37, 8th year); Tunkhannock’s Rod Azar (3-17, 3rd year)

Last Meeting: Coughlin 28-0 in 2012

All-Time Series: Coughlin leads 20-11-1

Quick Fact: Last year’s game was the first of four times Tunkhannock was shut out.

Scouting Coughlin: The Crusaders intend to throw more, but until seen firsthand we’ll be doubters. This a team built on the running game and has produced 1,000-yard rushers on a regular basis. The top ground gainer back is FB Paul Cole and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get more carries. The Crusaders, though, don’t have the same bulk up front.

Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers found a good RB last year in then-freshman Ryan Cwynski. They also have a pair of solid, versatile quarterbacks. The key is if Tunkhannock has the horses to build around them. It’s been a struggle for whoever has been in charge to get the program to the next level.

What To Expect: Coughlin’s defense gave up a lot of points late last season and with many new faces it will be interesting to see if that trend continues. It should be a close game for awhile until Coughlin pulls away.
