Tunkhannock (1-3) at Crestwood (3-1)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Tunkhannock’s Rod Azar (4-20, 3rd year); Crestwood’s Greg Myers (51-49, 8th year)

Last Meeting: Crestwood 27-20 in 2012

All-Time Series: Tunkhannock leads 9-6

Quick Fact: Crestwood scored three consecutive second-half TDs last year to erase a 14-6 halftime deficit.

Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers have been the hard-luck team of the WVC. Two losses by five points or less have tossed them from possible playoff qualifier to also-ran at this point. They dug themselves in a 12-point hole vs. Pittston Area last Friday and could only climb out enough for a 12-10 loss. RB Ryan Cywinski rushed for a career-high 142 yards and enters off consecutive 100-yard efforts. The defense against the run has been solid the past two weeks.

Scouting Crestwood: The Comets enter off a big 27-19 victory over Wallenpaupack that catapulted them back into the D2-3A playoff talk. A big defensive stop at the 4-yard line with less than a minute left sealed the win. The defense kept the Buckhorns off the board in the second half, allowing a rally from a five-point deficit. On offense, the running game cooled, but RB Frank Aigeldinger and QB Jay Popson did just enough to prevail. Wallenpaupack outgained Crestwood 325-201.

What To Expect: A couple breaks here and there, and we have a pair of 3-1 teams battling it out for a possible playoff position. So that’s why Crestwood can’t just look at Tunkhannock’s record and assume a victory.
