Abington Heights

1 p.m.


The Coaches: Pittston Area‚??s Mike Barrett (3-7, 2nd year); Abington‚??s Joe Repshis (62-20, 8th year)

Last Meeting: Abington 21-8 in 2008

All-Time Series: Tied 3-3

Quick Fact: Pittston Area won the last regular-season meeting 14-6 in 1970.

Scouting Pittston Area: Like Abington, the Patriots were 3-7 last season. But it was a good 3-7 in that the Patriots looked good in nearly every game. They need to find a quarterback, but the other positions are covered by veterans for the most part.

Scouting Abington: Look at the Abington coach‚??s record. The Comets aren‚??t used to losing, but had an unexpected 3-7 record in 2011. However, they played well late despite going 1-3 down the stretch. Two losses were by a combined 13 points to postseason qualifiers.

What To Expect: If the game was Friday at Pittston Area, then the Patriots might be slight favorites. But Abington‚??s stadium ‚?? aka The Pit ‚?? is a difficult place to play on Saturday afternoons. And a difficult place to win for opponents.
