Abington Heights (2-0) at Williamsport (1-1)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Abington’s Joe Repshis (74-23, 9th year); Williamsport’s Kevin Choate (1-11, 2nd year)
Last Meeting: Abington 42-7 in 2012
All-Time Series: Williamsport leads 3-1
Quick Fact: Abington scored all 42 points in the first half last year.
Scouting Abington: The defending D2-3A champion has yet to allow a point this season. Saturday’s 17-0 victory over Dallas was a solid but not spectacular performance. QB J.C. Show and WR Nate Hollander exploited the middle of the Dallas defense, but the run offense could have been better. The defense is a bit ahead at this point.
Scouting Williamsport: Coming off a victory that snapped a 12-game losing streak, the Millionaires went bankrupt in a 25-0 loss to Mifflin County. RB Isaac Foust was bottled up after a strong opener, finishing with 36 yards. There was a revolving door at quarterback, something that looked solved in the opener.
What To Expect: Key game for Williamsport, which can start another early-season freefall. A win isn’t necessary, but a better effort definitely is.
