Holy Redeemer





7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Redeemer's Pat Reece (1-5, 1st year); Nanticoke's Ron Bruza (9-16, 3rd year)

Last Meeting: Nanticoke 52-36 in 2011

All-Time Series: Redeemer leads 3-2

Quick Fact: Redeemer averages 32 points per game in the series.

Scouting Redeemer: Redeemer has given up more points than any other WVC team the past two weeks – 134. The Royals lost 69-28 last Saturday to Wyoming Area in a game that was decided midway through the second quarter.

QB Jimmy Strickland threw for 216 yards and has six TD passes in the last two games. That could bode well since Nanticoke was torched by Meyers through the air three weeks ago. The running game had 82 yards, its second-best output of the season.

Scouting Nanticoke: Things unraveled a little quicker last Friday than in previous games with Meyers and Wyoming Area. The Trojans gave up 21 second-quarter points and didn't recover in losing 45-7 to Northwest.

The offense failed to score as Nanticoke got its only points on a punt return by Pat Hempel. The defense allowed over 300 yards rushing for a second consecutive game after being decent through the first four weeks.

What To Expect: A hard game to figure out. Nanticoke took a step backward last Friday after making progress. Do it again, and Redeemer could win another.
