2 p.m. Saturday
The Coaches: Berwick’s George Curry (425-92-5, 44th year); Dallas’ Bob Zaruta (7-6, 2nd year)
Last Meeting: Berwick 28-7 in 2012
All-Time Series: Berwick leads 11-4
Quick Fact: Berwick defeated Dallas 50-14 during the 2012 regular season. The last meeting was in the D2-3A playoffs.
Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs rolled another opponent, smoking Pottsville 56-7. RB Dain Kowalski had three TD runs, but Berwick hasn’t opened the throttle yet on the running game. That’s because QB C.J. Curry and WR Andrew Force are putting up crazy numbers. The defense has its swagger back, holding the Crimson Tide to minus-1 yard rushing on 27 carries.
Scouting Dallas: The Mountaineers failed to score once again, being shut out 17-0 by Abington Heights last Saturday afternoon. There were a couple bright spots on offense, but the unit is still devoid of a solid playmaker. A huge red flag was how Abington exploited the defense via pass between the hashmarks. A repeat performance will yield disastrous results vs. Berwick.
What To Expect: The Dawgs have a huge game next week against rival Wyoming Valley West. As long as they’re not looking ahead too much they should leave the Back Mountain as big winners.
