Scouting Crestwood: The Comets enters off an impressive 55-14 victory over Pittston Area. RB Frank Aigeldinger had an “Al Bundy” game with four TDs and 323 rushing yards. RB Tanner Kahlau and QB Jay Popson also ran well as Crestwood piled up 510 yards on the ground. The ground game has worked so well that the Comets have thrown a WVC-low 10 passes. The defense has been impressive the past two weeks.
Scouting Wallenpaupack: After opening with two wins, Wallenpaupack looked like a shoo-in to win its third. But Allentown Dieruff, one of the most unsuccessful Class 4A programs in the state, pulled off a 34-21 upset. RB Jovaughn Marshall makes the Buckhorns go. He rushed for 219 yards last Saturday and has 524 yards and seven touchdowns. Passing is an afterthought as the Buckhorns have just 26 attempts vs. 130 rushes.
What To Expect: You don’t have to be Vince Lombardi to figure out this is going to be a battle of running games. The better one tonight will likely determine the winner.
