Carbondale (2-0) at GAR (0-2)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Carbondale’s Larry Gabriel (17-28, 5th year); GAR’s Paul Wiedlich Jr. (29-10, 4th year)

Last Meeting: GAR 20-19 in 2012

All-Time Series: GAR leads 1-0

Quick Fact: GAR stopped a two-point conversion pass with 15 seconds left to preserve last year’s win.

Scouting Carbondale: The Chargers defeated Riverside 26-0 last Friday and have outscored their two opponents 60-0. The caveat is that neither foe is expected to be very strong this year. So the jury is still out on how good Carbondale really is. The Chargers are a run-oriented team, but the rushing numbers haven’t been overly impressive considering the competition.

Scouting GAR: Teams can get away with mistakes and poor tackling against lesser opponents. GAR found out what the two mean against a powerhouse last Saturday night as it was run over 48-7 by Dunmore. The only touchdown came via punt return as the Grenadiers lost the yardage battle 495-151.

What To Expect: GAR is probably a better team than it showed in its first two games, while Carbondale probably isn’t as strong as its record indicated. Still, the Grenadiers will be in a battle once again.
