The Coaches: Meyers' Corry Hanson (8-11, 2nd year); GAR's Paul Wiedlich Jr. (28-7, 3rd year)

Last Meeting: GAR 38-6 in 2011

All-Time Series: Meyers leads 42-37-1

Quick Fact: GAR has won the last five meetings

Scouting Meyers: Even though Meyers has one less victory than three other teams, the Mohawks can't make the D2-2A playoffs. They have secured an Eastern Conference berth.

Meyers has played well in its last two games after being thumped by Wyoming Area. RB Nate Mahalak had his first 100-yard rushing game of his career in last Saturday's 56-6 victory over Holy Redeemer. WR Matt DeMarco caught his 11th TD pass and posted his second punt return touchdown of the season. The defense stopped Redeemer's passing attack with six sacks and two interceptions.

Scouting GAR: GAR's 42-0 victory over Nanticoke last Saturday was a solid effort except for a few mistakes. Still, the Grenadiers played well enough to secure their second shutout in their last three games.

Sophomore RB A.J. Mouzone started in place of injured Rich Sickler and posted a career-high 110 yards and three rushing TDs. The running game, though, still needs some tinkering going into the postseason.

WR/RB Lucas Benton had his fifth 100-yard receiving game of the season. GAR didn't get as many of its weapons involved as usual, but really didn't need to do so.

What To Expect: Rivalry games are tough, but look for GAR to build some momentum going into the D2-2A playoffs.
