7 p.m. today



The Coaches: Wyoming Area's Randy Spencer (23-24, 5th year); Nanticoke's Ron Bruza (9-14, 3rd year)



Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 48-6 in 2011



All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 31-6-1



Quick Fact: Wyoming Area has won the past 13 meetings, scoring at least 35 points in the last eight games.



Scouting Wyoming Area: It could be a record-setting night as QB/RB Nick O'Brien is closing in on becoming the school's all-time leading rusher. He pulled much closer with a 193-yard, four-TD performance in a 43-8 victory over Hanover Area last week, but still needs 251 more.


Cody Schmitz also returned his second punt for a touchdown last Friday. The defense continued its strong play, surrendering just 182 yards per game and 3.3 per rush.



Scouting Nanticoke: Nanticoke lost 45-16 to Meyers last Saturday, but the game was close until late in the first half. Nanticoke concentrated on stopping Meyers' running game and did. The passing game, though, bit the Trojans for several big plays.


RB Pat Hempel ran hard and his 117 yards led a season-best 220 by the team. The Trojans ran 64 plays to Meyers' 39, but mistakes and a couple turnovers hurt throughout.



What To Expect: Nanticoke to go all out to stop O'Brien and make others make plays. The Warriors have the guys if the Trojans slow down O'Brien's big-play ability.
