Area (0-1)


Lackawanna Trail (1-0)

7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Hanover Area‚??s Ron Hummer (34-24, 7th year); Trail‚??s Steve Jervis (37-57, 10 year)

Last Meeting: never played

All-Time Series: never played

Quick Fact: This is the second consecutive week Trail plays a WVC team for the first time in school history.

Scouting Hanover Area: The young Hawkeyes were steamrolled in their opener 48-14 by Mid Valley. They trailed 42-0 at halftime and didn‚??t score until the fourth quarter. RB Brian Belcher managed 94 yards rushing, but Hanover Area‚??s offense finished with just 149 yards overall.

Scouting Trail: Trail did last week what veteran teams do. The Lions made Nanticoke pay for mistakes for a 34-8 victory. The game was close until RB Jon Zeder broke off a 44-yard TD run late in the second quarter. The defense held Nanticoke to 118 yards.

What To Expect: Hanover Area‚??s offense has the same characteristic of Nanticoke‚??s ‚?? a lot of new faces trying to learn on the fly. That doesn‚??t bode well for the Hawkeyes after what Trail did last week.
