7 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Lehman's Jerry Gilsky (16-10, 3rd year); GAR's Paul Wiedlich Jr. (25-6, 3rd year)

Last Meeting: GAR 37-23 in 2011

All-Time Series: GAR leads 28-13-2

Quick Fact: GAR has won six of the last seven meetings.

Scouting Lehman: The Black Knights trailed Meyers 14-13 at halftime last Saturday, but scored 30 third-quarter points and won 50-29. They have scored 41 or more points in seven of their last 12 games dating back to last year.

RB Dustin Jones pounded out a season-high 228 yards and five TDs vs. Meyers. WBs Brady Butler and Tom Donovan brought balance by exploiting the outside for 109 yards. The passing game, though, took a step backward.

Scouting GAR: The Grenadiers have appeared to have worked out the kinks in their offense the past two weeks. QB Corey Moore is throwing the ball well, completing 28-of-41 for six touchdowns in that span. WR/RB Lucas Benton continues to have his role increased, while RB A.J. Mouzone and Rich Sickler are running the ball better.

GAR was exploited on the ground in its first two games vs. Lakeland and Dunmore. Since then, the Grenadiers have allowed a total 235 yards rushing in their last three games. The secondary got a workout last Saturday against pass-happy Holy Redeemer.

What To Expect: Meyers couldn't bring Lehman back to the pack in the District 2 Class 2A playoff race. GAR has a solid chance to accomplish the feat.
