7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Lehman's Jerry Gilsky (17-10, 3rd year); Northwest's Carl Majer (33-18, 5th year)
Last Meeting: Lehman 35-7 in 2011
All-Time Series: Lehman leads 24-10-3
Quick Fact: Lehman has won 17 of the last 18 meetings.
Scouting Lehman: The Black Knights had their four-game winning streak snapped by GAR 35-26 last Saturday. Until the loss, they had won nine of their last 12 games.
The run defense surrendered just 29 yards, but GAR was able to pick apart the unit with short-to-intermediate passes for 293 yards. The secondary has been thrown at 91 times the last three games.
RB Dustin Jones had 88 hard-earned yards running up the gut, but the perimeter attack was lacking. Lehman threw a season-high 21 with little production. Big guy Pete Borum had a strong game on both side of the ball.
Scouting Northwest: Lehman is the first of three tough WVC teams for Northwest. The Rangers will need to win at least two of them for a 67 chance to make the District 2 Class A playoffs.
Northwest road Tony Politz to a 45-7 victory over Nanticoke. He rushed for 225 yards and three TDs, becoming the first WVC back to 1,000 yards. QB Marcus Welliver chipped in on the ground. Special teams scored a second TD this season when Kenny Jones jumped on a blocked punt.
What To Expect: It's only week 7 and it's Northwest's last home game of the regular season. So the Rangers will be pumped up. But so will Lehman after last week's loss.
