Area (1-1) at
The Coaches: Wyoming Area's Randy Spencer (22-23, 5th year); Lehman's Jerry Gilsky (13-10, 3rd year)
Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 43-10 in 2011.
All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 25-5
Quick Fact: Last year's game was moved from Wyoming Area to Lehman due to the flood.
Scouting Wyoming Area: The Warriors bounced back nicely from an opening loss to Scranton Prep to defeat Mid Valley 28-12. They used two big plays – a 56-yard TD catch by Cody Schmitz and a 55-yard TD run by Nick O'Brien – to take control. The story, though, is the defense, which has been impressive in consecutive weeks vs. very good offenses.
Scouting Lake-Lehman: After falling apart in the opener vs. Old Forge, the Black Knights rebounded with a 49-0 win over Montrose as expected. RB Dustin Jones rushed for 145 yards as Lehman piled up 429 yards, but it must be noted that Montrose is among the weakest teams in District 2.
What To Expect: It will be a lot tougher for Lehman to move the ball vs. Wyoming Area. But if the Black Knights play like they did vs. Old Forge – minus the second-quarter debacle – they could make things interesting.
