Mid Valley (0-1) at Wyoming Area (0-1)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Mid Valley’s Dave Rebar (19-25, 5th year); Wyoming Area’s Randy Spencer (31-26, 6th year)

Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 28-12 in 2012

All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 2-0

Quick Fact: Wyoming Area recorded three interceptions in defeating the Spartans last year.

Scouting Mid Valley: A fourth-quarter fumble at the Hanover Area 1-yard line was costly for Mid Valley in its opener as the Spartans fell 12-7 to the Hawkeyes, who had lost 12 in a row. RB Tyler Collins, who was coming off a strong junior year, was bottled up and finished with 31 yards. Mid Valley’s only score came on a kick return to start the third quarter. Otherwise, most was forgettable.

Scouting Wyoming Area: The defending D2-2A champion showed just how hard it’s going to be to replace those departed seniors. The Warriors looked sluggish on offense in their 35-7 loss to Scranton Prep. The blocking was particularly poor at times. The defense was passable, allowing just two touchdowns. Prep had a pair of Pick-6s and blocked a punt for another score.

What To Expect: Based on how both teams played the first week, the game could be an offensive struggle disguised as a defensive battle. Mistakes haunted both teams in their openers and could again tonight.
