The Coaches: Williamsport's Kevin Choate (0-6, 1st year); Berwick's George Curry (418-90-5, 43rd year)

Last Meeting: Berwick 43-0 in 2011

All-Time Series: Berwick leads 18-7

Quick Fact: Berwick won the first meeting 14-0 in 1946.

Scouting Williamsport: A problem Choate mentioned in the preseason has continued – defense. The Millionaires fell 36-8 to Coughlin, which wasn't bad considering past efforts. They've surrendered 40 or more points in six of their last eight games.

Sadiq Burkholder took over the QB position last week, the third guy to do so this season. He is one of the top athletes in the WVC, but wasn't able to do much via pass or run. RB Devin Miller was held in check once again, gaining just 45 yards.

Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs were in a bit of a tussle with Tunkhannock until hitting big plays late in the second quarter and cruising to a 49-0 victory.

QB C.J. Curry tossed three TD passes, his first since week 3, on five completions. WR Jake Pecorelli hauled in his sixth TD catch, while Andrew Force had two. RB Matt Cashman sealed the game with a couple short touchdown runs, but had a season-low 12 carries for 65 yards.

What To Expect: Curry's Berwick teams in the past would take an opponent like this and stomp it quickly. It might take a little bit longer, like last week vs. Tunkhannock, but the Dawgs will land a knockout.
