Nanticoke (1-3) at Wyoming Area (1-3)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Nanticoke’s Ron Bruza (12-21, 4th year); Wyoming Area’s Randy Spencer (32-28, 6th year)

Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 44-14 in 2012

All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 32-6-1

Quick Fact: Wyoming Area led just 14-7 at halftime last year.

Scouting Nanticoke: The Trojans came into the season with just about every starter back. Expectations were high; results have been low with the only victory coming against winless Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech. The offense hit rock bottom last Friday in a 36-0 loss to Meyers. The running game, Nanticoke’s bread-and-butter, has just 81 yards in the last two games combined. The Trojans have had some success here and there throwing the ball, but the offense isn’t designed to lean in that direction.

Scouting Wyoming Area: It was far from pretty, but the 20-12 win over Hanover Area could be the boost the young Warriors needed. They took advantage of Hanover Area miscues as Ryan Murray recovered a fumble and picked off a pass at critical junctures. The defense hasn’t been all that bad, save for the Lake-Lehman debacle. The offense, though, has been hacking and wheezing throughout as the Warriors continue to search for playmakers. The search could take some time.

What To Expect: This is about as even as the teams have been in quite some time. Still, that doesn’t means Wyoming Area won’t have enough to win.
