Lake-Lehman (3-1) at Meyers (2-2)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Lehman’s Jerry Gilsky (21-15, 4th year); Meyers’ Corry Hanson (10-15, 3rd year)
Last Meeting: Lehman 50-29 in 2012
All-Time Series: Meyers leads 28-16
Quick Fact: Meyers led 14-13 at halftime last year before Lehman scored 30 third-quarter points.
Scouting Lehman: The Black Knights have trampled their last three opponents, with Holy Redeemer the last victim in a 61-22 victory last Friday. A couple late TDs by Redeemer were window dressing. Three guys went over 100 yards on the ground for Lehman, with 240-pound Dustin Jones (172 yds.) leading the way. RB Brady Butler topped 100 for a second consecutive game. The Black Knights threw one pass and have tossed just six in their last three games. Really, there was no need to bother. However, they might need to air it out some tonight.
Scouting Meyers: Meyers showed no ill effects from a 26-21 loss to Lackawanna Trail two weeks ago, shutting out Nanticoke 36-0. QB Matt DeMarco continues to run the ball well out of the read-option attack. A bonus, though, has been the converted receiver’s throwing the last two games. He’s 10-of-14 with two TDs in that span. RB Nate Mahalak is the lunchpail guy in the backfield. Except for a glitch against powerful Old Forge, the run defense has been stellar.
What To Expect: This will be Lehman’s toughest game since the opener at Old Forge. The Black Knights have too many weapons and can attack from too many angle for Meyers to handle.
