All-Time Series: North Pocono leads 6-2
Quick Fact: Crestwood stopped North Pocono on a two-point conversion try with 1:03 remaining to preserve last year’s win.
Scouting Crestwood: The Comets entered the season with big aspirations, but like many teams in the past had them toned down at Crispin Field. The Dawgs carved up Crestwood’s secondary for 337 yards and four TDs in winning 41-7. The offense was shut down as starting RB Frank Aigeldinger had just 55 yards. There were five fumbles and three botched snaps. Not what was expected from the Comets.
Scouting North Pocono: North Pocono, coached by former Wyoming Area QB Greg Dohlon, lost its 23rd consecutive game, falling 48-13 to Dunmore in its opener. North Pocono trailed 13-6 late in the second quarter before Dunmore scored five consecutive touchdowns to pull away. North Pocono kept the ball on the ground for the most part with middling success.
What To Expect: The pressure is squarely on Crestwood. The Comets wanted this season to be a statement year and losing to a team that hasn’t won since 2010 could be crushing. Crestwood won’t let that happen.
