Holy Redeemer (1-2) at Lake-Lehman (2-1)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Redeemer’s Pat Reece (4-9, 2nd year); Lehman’s Jerry Gilsky (20-15, 4th year)
Last Meeting: Lehman 42-12 in 2012
All-Time Series: Lehman leads 6-0
Quick Fact: Redeemer didn’t score until the fourth quarter in last year’s loss.
Scouting Redeemer: The Royals became the latest victim of Old Forge’s potent running attack as the Blue Devils gained 353 yards on the ground in the 48-14 victory. Redeemer tacked on a couple TDs after the game was well in hand. The running game had made some progress the first two week, but stalled against Old Forge. The Royals have a solid passing offense, and Lehman hasn’t been tested via air much.
Scouting Lehman: The Black Knights avenged a blowout loss to Wyoming Area in the playoffs last year with a 54-7 victory last Friday. Of course, this Wyoming Area team is quite different. Nonetheless, Lehman battered the Warriors with three runners. RB Brady Butler led the bunch with 111 yards. The passing game has thrown just six times in the last two games. Scratch a 75-yard TD run against the backups and Lehman allowed just 7 yards on defense, all on the ground.
What To Expect: The Black Knights are on a roll since losing a tough game at Old Forge to start the season. The momentum won’t stop tonight.
