Northwest (1-0) at Susquehanna (0-1)

1 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Northwest’s Carl Majer (34-23, 6th year); Susquehanna’s Kyle Cook (0-1, 1st year)

Last Meeting: Susquehanna 16-14 in 2012

All-Time Series: Susquehanna leads 4-1

Quick Fact: Susquehanna won last year’s game with a safety with 6:10 left to play.

Scouting Northwest: The Rangers got into a tussle – and marathon – last Saturday before outlasting Holy Redeemer 28-24. Because of a lightning delay, the game ended about 11:30 p.m. RB Austin Mazonkey (86 yards) was on his way to a 100-yard performance before he and others were slowed by the heat. RB Tyler Burger stepped in with a surprising 136-yard performance, so it looks like Northwest will have a solid 1-2 punch going forward. But 15 penalties were a no-no.

Scouting Susquehanna: The Sabers enter off a 25-20 loss to Western Wayne. They scored late, but couldn’t continue the rally attempt. That wasn’t surprising since Susquehanna isn’t a quick strike gang. Its veer offense is more suited for chewing up time and yardage at a steady pace when it can. The backfield returns from last season, so the offense is expected to run smoother.

What To Expect: Once again Majer will have a seat in the bleachers as he finishes out his suspension. The view this Saturday should be more pleasing than last Saturday.
