All-Time Series: Berwick leads 21-1
Quick Fact: Tunkhannock’s only win in the series was 7-6 in the 1987 Eastern Conference semifinals.
Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs continue to roll. Pouncing on Selinsgrove mistakes, they were up 22-0 less than six minutes into last Friday’s game. They won 36-0. RB Dain Kowalski posted his first 100-yard game and FB Jorden Stout continues to run well. That’s a good sign for Berwick, which relied a little too heavily on QB C.J. Curry and the receivers early on. RB Nate Maczuga was coming on, but suffered an arm injury that likely ended his season.
Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers were routed 56-0 by Crestwood last Friday. It was the fourth time in 10 games Tunkhannock failed to score. The run defense gave up nearly 10 yards per carry in its worst effort of the season. RB Ryan Cywinski had his streak of consecutive 100-yard games snapped. The Tigers finished with just 67 yards and five first downs. Pretty much a forgettable performance overall.
What To Expect: Berwick is playing too well to allow Tunkhannock to be much of a problem. Plus, the Tigers’ struggles against upper echelon teams has been pronounced this season.
