GAR (2-7) at Meyers (3-6)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: GAR’s Paul Wiedlich Jr. (31-15, 4th year); Meyers’ Corry Hanson (11-19, 3rd year)

Last Meeting: GAR 50-12 in 2012

All-Time Series: Meyers leads 42-38-1

Quick Fact: GAR has defeated Meyers in the last six meetings.

Scouting GAR: The Grenadiers won’t be heading to the postseason for the first time since 2005. A reason — performances like last Friday in a 16-7 loss to Nanticoke. Good first half, not-so-good second half. GAR also turned over the ball five times. RB Anthony Maurent finished with 90 yards, but the 166 yards rushing by the Grenadiers was a disappointment coming off a very good effort vs. Wyoming Area a week earlier. The run defense allowed more than 300 yards for the fourth time this year.

Scouting Meyers: Meyers didn’t bother throwing a pass last Friday in defeating Holy Redeemer 38-19. QB Matt DeMarco, the team’s leading rusher, toted the ball seven times, as he continues to recover from an ankle injury four weeks ago. If he’s healthy, he could reach 1,000 for the season. RBs Mark Robinson (148 yards) and Nate Mahalak (117) both had career days against Redeemer’s weak run defense. The defense allowed a season-high 203 yards through the air, but Redeemer did throw the ball 41 times.

What To Expect: The Wilkes-Barre city rivals are done after tonight, so expect both teams to leave everything on the field. Pretty much a toss-up between two teams that have been plagued by inconsistency throughout the season.
