Scouting Selinsgrove: The Seals enter off a dominating 42-13 performance against Shamokin. The defense controlled Shamokin, allowing one offensive score. The Selinsgrove offense showed balance like it has all season. Junior QB Isaiah Rapp is a capable thrower. There are three quality running backs as well – senior Connor Liesenfeld, junior Zach Adams and sophomore Angelo Martin.
Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs finally broke open their game with rival Valley West late in the third quarter, scoring three consecutive TDs for a 42-28 victory. Berwick took to the ground in the second half as its run-pass ratio was 31-4. RB Dain Kowalski made amends for a costly fumble early to score the final two TDs. RB Nate Maczuga looked good toting the ball. The Dawgs showed they have a lot of guys capable of making plays.
What To Expect: Berwick got over a big hump last Friday only to find another on Crispin Field in the form of Selinsgrove, an old-time rival prior to the Dawgs joining the WVC. They can’t afford a letdown vs. the Seals
