Old Forge (2-0) at Holy Redeemer (1-1)

1 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Old Forge’s Mike Schuback (91-40, 12th year); Redeemer’s Pat Reece (4-8, 2nd year)

Last Meeting: Old Forge 56-7 in 2012

All-Time Series: Old Forge leads 4-0

Quick Fact: Old Forge set a school record with 56 first-half points the last time the teams played.

Scouting Old Forge: Old Forge topped Meyers 49-6 last Friday, stifling another running attack. Now the Blue Devils need to stop the throw-first Royals. They saw 28 passes in their first two games, an amount they’ll surly see tonight. It shouldn’t matter. Old Forge’s ground attack – led by 6-foot-2 Brandon Yescavage – will be too much for Redeemer.

Scouting Redeemer: Redeemer had another big day throwing the ball in last Saturday’s 44-20 win over Holy Cross. The bigger news is the rushing game has shown some punch as well. The Royals will always be a throwing team, but countering with some runs can only help. Unfortunately, the run defense was not very stout and will be tested throughout by Old Forge.

What To Expect: The game of the year in the Lackawanna Conference is next week – Old Forge at Dunmore. Old Forge won’t let the Royals come close to wrecking the anticipation.
