Hazleton Area (0-2) at Delaware Valley (0-2)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Hazleton Area’s Jim Drumheller (5-17, 3rd year); DelVal’s Keith Olsommer (87-69, 14th year)

Last Meeting: DelVal 49-12 in 2012

All-Time Series: Hazleton Area leads 5-3

Quick Fact: DelVal hasn’t started a season with three consecutive losses since 2000.

Scouting Hazleton Area: The Cougars dropped their eighth in a row last Friday, falling 26-16 to Coughlin. The running game never got going and the passing offense was plagued by a couple costly drops. The defense gave up at least 370 yards for the second time.

Scouting DelVal: The Warriors played better in Week 2, but still fell 35-12 to Wyoming Valley West. They trailed 21-12 late in the third quarter. RB Lex Rosario rushed for 72 yards, but the passing offense – a staple to last year’s D2-4A title team – is still very much a work in progress.

What To Expect: A long day in school followed by a very long bus trip won’t make it easy for the Cougars to return to Hazleton with a victory.
