The Coaches: Tunkhannock's Rod Azar (1-9, 2nd year); Coughlin's Ciro Cinti (34-32, 7th year)
Last Meeting: Coughlin 48-11 in 2011
All-Time Series: Coughlin leads 19-11-1
Quick Fact: Coughlin won the first meeting 6-0 in 1898. Tunkhannock did not score until the seventh meeting, a 55-22 Crusaders win in 1984
Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers were able to pick up their only win of 2011 in their season finale. Some skill guys who showed promise return, so it's possible for a few more wins this season. The line, though, is young and depth isn't too deep.
Scouting Coughlin: Zac Evans takes over at the backfield workhorse. He'll have two of the best blocking for him – linemen Brad Emerick and Aaron Tohme. That's been the Crusaders' recipe for success throughout Cinti's reign.
What To Expect: Coughlin rushed for a season-high 387 yards in last year's matchup. The Crusaders will use the same formula and the number of passes by their offense should be able to be counted on one hand.
