Col-Mont. Vo-Tech (0-1) at Nanticoke (0-1)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Vo-Tech’s Mark Varner (36-49, 9th year); Nanticoke’s Ron Bruza (11-19, 4th year)

Last Meeting: Nanticoke 36-0 in 2012

All-Time Series: Nanticoke leads 3-1

Quick Fact: Pat Hempel returned a free kick for a TD after Nanticoke posted a safety in last year’s game.

Scouting Vo-Tech: The Rams opened their season with a 34-14 loss to Sayre. Sayre’s running game posted over 300 yards, leading to a 34-0 lead in the third quarter. Vo-Tech did have a couple bright spots on offense – RB Chris Zanolini and QB Dylan Larkin. They combined for most of the Rams’ yardage.

Scouting Nanticoke: Nanticoke got off to a good start in its opener as RB Pat Hempel zipped 65 yards for a touchdown on the game’s second play. Then it was all downhill as Lackawanna Trail piled up 503 yards in its 39-7 victory. Hempel cracked 100 yards rushing for the third time in his last five games, but very little worked well when the Trojans had the ball.

What To Expect: Nanticoke can run the ball and will have the best player on the field in Hempel. That should be enough to get past Vo-Tech.
