Last Meeting: Meyers 45-16 in 2012
All-Time Series: Meyers leads 46-28-3
Quick Fact: Meyers outscored Nanticoke 25-6 in the second half of last year’s victory.
Scouting Meyers: It was a heartbreaker for Meyers last Friday as the Mohawks saw a 21-7 halftime disappear in a 26-21 loss to Lackawanna Trail. The run defense surrendered just 11 yards in the first half but 239 in the second. The pass defense got burned for two second-half TD passes. QB Matt DeMarco threw his first TD pass of the season and continued to be a threat running the ball.
Scouting Nanticoke: Nanticoke trailed 21-14 at halftime last Saturday against Susquehanna and that’s the way the score stayed as the Trojans managed just 20 second-half yards and didn’t cross the 50-yard line. RB Pat Hempel had only five rushes for 11 yards. QB J.T. Levandowski didn’t complete many passes, but made them count. Bruza had no complaints about the defensive effort.
What To Expect: Nanticoke had trouble stopping a running quarterback last Saturday and get another tonight in DeMarco, whose running will be the difference.
