Northwest (4-0) at Hanover Area (1-3)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Northwest’s Carl Majer (37-23, 6th year); Hanover Area’s Ron Hummer (35-46, 8th year)

Last Meeting: Northwest 34-13 in 2012

All-Time Series: Hanover Area leads 4-2

Quick Fact: Last year’s game was tied 13-13 entering the fourth quarter.

Scouting Northwest: It was another close call for the Rangers last Friday as they edged GAR 26-20. Three victories have come by six points or less, so this is a team living on the edge. RB Austin Mazonkey makes things go. He’s coming off a career-high 352 yards rushing vs. GAR. He leads the entire WVC with 811 on the ground. The defense hasn’t allowed an opponent more than 120 yards on the ground, but the competition hasn’t been top flight.

Scouting Hanover Area: Four turnovers proved costly as the Hawkeyes fell to Wyoming Area 20-12. It was the third time this season they had at least three turnovers. Hanover Area doesn’t have the firepower to make up for such mistakes. RB Isaiah Taylor has been a pleasant surprise with consecutive 100-yard games. Consistency on both sides of the ball has been wavering, which was expected for the young team.

What To Expect: Upset special? Maybe. Northwest has been winning close games and Hanover Area played some pretty good opponents thus far.
