The Coaches: Berwick's George Curry (416-90-5, 43rd year); Selinsgrove's Dave Hess (41-16, 5th year)

Last Meeting: Berwick 45-0 in 2011

All-Time Series: Berwick leads 15-10

Quick Fact: The Dawgs snapped a four-game losing streak to Selinsgrove last year.

Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs' 11-game winning streak didn't just end against Valley West, it was demolished. They were dominated in every aspect of the game. The 33-15 final wasn't as close as it looked.

C.J. Curry had three terrific games to start the season, but was harassed all night and finished 1-of-12 for 8 yards. RB Matt Cashman has his excellent start come to a halt as well. The defense 352 rushing yards, more than its first three games combined.

Scouting Selinsgrove: Two years removed from the Class 3A state title, the Seals slipped to 1-9 in 2011. Part of the reason was turmoil as eight players were dismissed from the team after the first game.

The Seals, though, have turned things around. They have two shutouts, but have been winning close games. They needed a 2-yard TD run by QB Tyler Krebs with14 seconds left to defeat Shamokin 20-13 last week and have won three games by a combined 12 points.

What To Expect: Berwick isn't as bad as it showed last week. Selinsgrove might not be as good as its record indicates. Looks like a toss-up.
