7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Hazleton Area’s Jim Drumheller (5-18, 3rd year); Williamsport’s Kevin Choate (1-12, 2nd year)

All-Time Series: Williamsport leads 19-17-1

Quick Fact: Hazleton Area returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in last year’s victory.

Scouting Hazleton Area: It’s another long road trip for Hazleton Area, which traveled to Delaware Valley last Friday and lost 28-7. The Cougars’ only touchdown came with just under three minutes to play. The defense created three turnovers, but Hazleton Area failed to capitalized as the offense continues to look for consistency running and passing the ball.

Scouting Williamsport: After rallying for a victory in their opener, the Millionaires haven’t scored in their last two games. The running game has grounded to a halt as RB Isaac Foust has averaged 2.2 yards per carry after rushing for 186 yards in the first game. The defense did a solid job vs. the run in losing 33-0 to Abington Heights last week. The secondary, considered a strength entering the season, was exploited and is allowing 143.3 yards per game.

What To Expect: Neither team is playing up to its capabilities. The winner will likely be the team whose light comes on first.
