The Coaches: Coughlin's Ciro Cinti (37-34, 7th year); Williamsport's Kevin Choare (0-5, 1st year)

Last Meeting: Coughlin 28-0 in 2011

All-Time Series: Williamsport leads 28-17

Quick Fact: Williamsport won the first meeting 1 1-0 in 1900.

Scouting Coughlin: The Crusaders enter with a two-game losing streak. Moreover, they have just two touchdowns in their last two games and the stout rushing game has had its two worst performances in that span.

That should change against Williamsport, which has one of the WVC's worst run defenses. So that means RB Zac Evans and FB Paul Cole could have big games. More good news is the defense has remained difficult to run against and is giving up a WVC-low 180 yards per game.

Scouting Williamsport: The Millionaires were blown out for a fourth time last Friday, losing 31-7 to Dallas. The run defense has been poor, allowing its last four opponents to rush for 276 or more yards. Only two other WVC teams allow more yardage on the ground.

The offense is out of sync as well. RB Devin Miller is on pace for a third 1,000-yard season, but had just 41 yards on the ground vs. Dallas. The passing offense has produced just one score, that coming late in a 42-7 loss to Abington Heights.

What To Expect: It might take Coughlin a few series to get its legs back, but once the Crusaders do they should run away with a win.
