WEEK THREE FOOTBALL PREVIEWS
This week's seven-game schedule features five Friday night games and two Class 3A tilts the following night. Each night features a game with first-place implications. Several longstanding series will also be renewed as the 2020 regular season reaches the halfway point for the area's 13 squads.
Sharpsville at Wilmington, 7:00 p.m.
It's a battle for first place in Region 2 (Class 2A) when Wilmington (2-0) hosts Sharpsville (1-1). Both teams used strong second-half performances last week in earning road wins. Wilmington outscored Farrell, 21-0, over the final 24 minutes in a 41-20 victory last week. Meanwhile, Sharpsville scored twice in the third quarter as the Blue Devils edged Greenville, 14-12.
Wilmington's Wing-T offense amassed 465 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns last week. The Greyhounds also integrated the Single Wing into their offensive attack in the second half as both senior quarterback Caelan Bender and senior halfback Ethan Susen took snaps. Bender gave Wilmington the lead for good, 27-20, with a 17-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. He finished with 93 yards and two touchdowns.
Susen ran for 234 yards and two scores on 21 attempts. He finished the game with 286 all-purpose yards. Senior fullback Darren Miller added 118 rushing yards and a score. Miller and Susen helped seal the wins with touchdown runs in the fourth quarter.
Defensively, Wilmington blanked Farrell's high-powered offense in the second half, holding the Steelers to 44 total yards. Bender intercepted a pass in the end zone to preserve the 27-20 lead in the closing seconds of the third quarter. Susen also intercepted a pass.
Susen leads the area with 389 all-purpose yards. He leads the county in yards per carry (11.5) and ranks third locally with 277 rushing yards. Miller ranks second in the 13-team area with 284 rushing yards. As a team, Wilmington leads the area in rushing yards per game (414.5) and yards per carry (9.3).
Sharpsville's defense also came up with critical plays inside the red zone at Greenville. Greenville led 6-0 in the first quarter and after a Sharpsville fumble, the Trojans moved to the Sharpsville 6. However, the Blue Devils stopped Greenville on downs. Early in the fourth quarter, Zack Tedrow intercepted a pass in the end zone on fourth and goal, preserving Sharpsville's 14-6 lead.
Sharpsville senior safety Danny Henwood also picked off a pass for the Blue Devils. Offensively, his 68-yard touchdown sprint in the third quarter and Liam Campbell's subsequent extra point gave the Blue Devils their first lead, 7-6. Sophomore quarterback Stephen Tarnoci pushed the lead to 14-6 late in the third quarter by scoring on a one-yard sneak.
Henwood ran for 115 yards on 10 carries while fullback Chris Roth added 65 yards on a season-high 19 attempts. Henwood leads Sharpsville with 128 rushing yards, five receptions and 58 receiving yards. His 296 all-purpose yards rank third in the county.
Wilmington is the only local team to have not turned over the ball during the first two weeks of the season. Sharpsville has committed a county-high five turnovers in 2020. Only Reynolds (7) has attempted fewer passes this season than have Wilmington (13) or Sharpsville (19) among the area contingent.
Wilmington has won 20 straight home games. Wilmington leads the all-time series, 11-4. The Greyhounds have won six straight meetings, including a 37-0 home win October 11, 2019. Miller ran for 122 yards and a touchdown while Bender added 78 rushing yards and two scores. Wilmington held Sharpsville to minus-28 rushing yards.
The teams first met October 28, 1994, with Wilmington earning a 40-0 home win. Sharpsville is 1-5 against the Greyhounds at Wilmington. That win came October 24, 2014, as the Blue Devils earned a 40-0 triumph. The Blue Devils are 6-1 in District 10 playoff games at Wilmington. Sharpsville also defeated Mercer, 23-15, November 4, 2006 at Wilmington in the regular season finale for both teams.
Last Friday night, Sharpsville head coach Paul Piccirilli earned his 211th victory in 25 seasons at the helm. He now ranks fourth all-time in Mercer County area coaching history after having been tied with legendary Farrell head football coach Lou Falconi.
Piccirilli is the father-in-law of Wilmington head coach Brandon Phillian. This is the fourth matchup between the two men as head coaches. The fifth matchup -- this year's return game -- will be the regular season finale October 16 at Sharpsville.
The game can be heard on 790 WPIC.
Farrell at Greenville, 7:00 p.m.
For the first time since 1937, Farrell (1-1) and Greenville (0-2) will play as league opponents, when the teams meet Friday night at Stewart Field. Both teams look to bounce back from home defeats in which each squad allowed its respective lead to evaporate.
Farrell led Wilmington throughout the first half but ultimately dropped a 41-20 verdict. Meanwhile, a pair of missed conversions helped foil Greenville in a 14-12 loss to visiting Sharpsville last week.
Both teams feature juniors as their primary ball carrier. Farrell junior Anthony Stallworth ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns against Wilmington. He also caught two passes for 80 yards and a score. Stallworth, Mercer County's leading rusher in 2019 with 1,768 yards, currently ranks fifth in the area with 205 rushing yards. His five total touchdowns and 30 points both rank second locally.
Greenville junior running back Levi Swartz missed the opener against Wilmington but debuted in Week Two with 111 rushing yards and both of the Trojans' touchdowns against Sharpsville. He ran for 675 yards last year, second to Stallworth among the area's sophomores.
Defensively, Farrell and Greenville rank 12th and 13th, respectively, in the area in rushing defense. Both teams have faced Wilmington's powerful ground attack, however, which affects early season statistics. Farrell allows 6.4 yards per carry while Greenville yields 7.2 yards per rushing attempt this year.
Conversely, both passing defenses rank among the area's best. Farrell ranks second in pass efficiency defense, compiling a 69.5 opponents' rating. Greenville has held its two opponents to a 27.8 completion percentage.
Farrell senior quarterback Christian Hartley has completed 64 percent (16 of 25) of his passes this year and ranks fourth in the county with 286 passing yards. Kylon Wilson leads Farrell with six catches while Stallworth leads the Steelers with 87 receiving yards.
Greenville senior wide receiver Rufus Byler has been the favorite target of first-year starting quarterback Jalen Ritzert. Byler has caught 11 balls this year. Ritzert, a junior, has thrown for 112 yards in his first two starts.
Greenville has not started 0-3 since 2005. An 0-3 start has happened only four other times in Greenville history: 1927, 1928, 1946 and 2002.
The Steelers won last year's meeting at Greenville, 39-0. Stallworth ran for 155 yards and two touchdowns while current senior Jaden Harrison added 90 yards and a score. Harrison continues to recover from a preseason leg injury. Swartz paced Greenville with 42 rushing yards.
Farrell and Greenville played in what could be defined as a Mercer County "league" during the 1930s, along with Grove City, Sharon and Sharpsville. After the 1939 season, Greenville, Grove City and Sharpsville joined Corry, Franklin and Titusville in a District 10 "Class A" conference. Greenville did not play Farrell in 1937, 1938 or 1939.
Farrell leads the all-time series 20-9-2. Greenville's last win over Farrell came November 11, 1983. The Trojans pulled out a 7-6 home win over Farrell in the second annual Northwest Conference-Keystone Football League playoff game.
It is notable that in this COVID-delayed 2020 football campaign, the first meeting between Farrell and Greenville took place during an abbreviated season. Greenville earned a 39-0 win at Farrell on October 12, 1918. The Spanish Flu epidemic later halted the season that November.
Farrell will host Greenville in the regular season finale October 16.
Mercer at West Middlesex, 7:00 p.m.
Of the weekend's seven games, the Mercer-West Middlesex clash is the only encounter that features a pair of 1-1 teams. Friday night's winner will have sole possession of second place and potentially a share of first place in Region 1. West Middlesex has a short week after pulling out a 10-0 win last Saturday afternoon at Kennedy Catholic. Meanwhile, Mercer fell at Reynolds, 47-0, in the Mustangs' road opener last Friday night.
West Middlesex owns the area's top statistical defense as the Big Reds allow only 141.5 yards per game. West Middlesex also allows only 3.5 yards per play, which ranks second in the area. Mercer has forced a county-high five turnovers through the first two weeks.
West Middlesex held Kennedy to one first down and to minus-34 yards of total offense. The Big Reds opened the scoring with a safety in the third quarter when junior linebacker Ian Smith tackled Kennedy's Sky'Ler Thomas in the end zone.
West Middlesex's double-slot offense and Mercer's Delaware Wing-T scheme both feature the ground attack as their respective offensive foundation. However, the teams are both averaging less than three yards per carry. West Middlesex averages 2.9 per attempt and Mercer averages 2.7 yards per carry through the first two weeks.
Fullback Smith leads West Middlesex with 129 rushing yards. He ran for 107 yards at Kennedy. Mercer has featured halfbacks Aidan Bright and Logan Turton as its primary ball carriers. A senior, Bright has 99 yards this season while junior Turton has added 74 yards on a team-high 20 carries. Turton leads Mercer with three receptions.
Senior split end Chris Smith leads West Middlesex with seven receptions for 115 yards. He sits fourth in the county in receiving yards and yards per catch (16.4). Senior quarterback Ty Tate has completed 65.4 percent of his passes.
Mercer is the area's least-penalized team, having been flagged only seven times for 45 yards through the first two weeks.
West Middlesex clinched a District 10 playoff berth last year by defeating visiting Mercer, 35-0, October 11. The Big Reds went 7 for 10 on third down and converted both of their fourth-down situations in the win.
Current senior Alex Rea ran for one score and also caught a touchdown pass from Tate. Tate completed 7 of 11 passes for 107 yards. Led by Zeb Rubaker's 174 yards, West Middlesex amassed 315 rushing yards. Bright led Mercer with 85 rushing yards on 11 attempts.
West Middlesex has won seven straight in the series. Mercer last defeated the Big Reds in 2011. Mercer closed that regular season with a 42-6 win at West Middlesex. Two weeks later, the Big Reds toppled Mercer in the District 10 Class A semifinals, 44-34.
Mercer leads the all-time series 29-22-1. The modern era of the series began in 1971, when Mercer capped a 9-0 season by blanking West Middlesex, 30-0, in the season finale.
Mercer and West Middlesex competed in District 7's Tri-County League from 1971 to 1981 and then again from 1984 to 1989. The football programs moved to District 10 and the Mercer County Athletic Conference in 1990. Mercer is 17-16 against West Middlesex since 1990. The teams also played in 1928 and 1929. West Middlesex earned a 13-0 home win October 13, 1928. The lone tie between the teams came November 9, 1929 -- a scoreless draw at West Middlesex. West Middlesex discontinued football in the 1930s and resumed the varsity program in 1964.
West Middlesex will visit Mercer in Week Six.
The game will be heard on Sports Radio 96.7. Live stats available here.
Kennedy Catholic at Reynolds, 7:00 p.m.
Reynolds seeks its second straight 3-0 start to a season as the Raiders close the first half of the regular season Friday night against a quickly-improving Kennedy Catholic squad.
Both squads produced strong defensive performances last week in their respective home openers. Reynolds held Mercer to eight first downs, 145 yards and zero points in a 47-0 victory. Meanwhile, Kennedy's defense stonewalled West Middlesex three times inside the Golden Eagles' 20. However, a safety and a short field after the subsequent free kick helped West Middlesex pull out a 10-0 victory at Butala Stadium.
Reynolds shares the county lead in scoring defense, allowing 10.0 points per game. The Raiders also rank third in the county in total defense, allowing an average of 173.0 yards per game. Kennedy Catholic ranks fourth in that category, holding opponents to 192.0 yards per game.
Each team's offense also features an individual statistical leader in the area. Reynolds senior halfback Cole Toy leads Mercer County with 352 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Meanwhile, Kennedy sophomore wide receiver Dajaun Young shares the county lead with a dozen receptions.
Toy ran for 151 yards and two touchdowns in last Friday night's win over Mercer. Fellow senior halfback Dreyvin Livingston added 74 yards and a score while senior fullback Aidan Mull rumbled for 60 yards and a touchdown. The Raiders accumulated 367 rushing yards in the victory.
Young and running back Matt Jordan both caught two passes from sophomore quarterback Nick Ondo in Kennedy's home opener. Jordan made his season debut at running back and linebacker for the Golden Eagles after missing the season opener. He combined with Elijah Smith for one of Kennedy's four quarterback sacks. Smith also had a solo sack, as did Malachi Owens and Kole Tarary. The Golden Eagles have recorded seven quarterback sacks this season.
Ondo has completed 22 of 43 passes for 213 yards this season. Senior Sky'Ler Thomas leads Kennedy with 129 receiving yards on five catches. He ranks second in the area in yards per catch (25.8).
Reynolds last opened back-to-back seasons with three straight victories in 1990 and 1991. The Raiders also went 3-0 in 1988. The 1989 Reynolds team opened 2-0-1, thanks to a 12-12 tie at DuBois in Week Two.
Reynolds leads the all-time series 20-8. The teams first met September 16, 1967. Kennedy won each of the first four meetings. This is the first meeting since October 12, 2013. Reynolds picked up a 49-0 win that day at Kennedy.
The teams will square off in the regular season finale October 17 in Hermitage.
Lakeview at Maplewood, 7:00 p.m.
Lakeview opens the road portion of its 2020 schedule Friday night by visiting 2019 District 10 Class 1A finalist Maplewood in Region 4 action.
The Sailors evened their record at 1-1 in Week Two with a 26-0 victory over visiting Cochranton. That marked Lakeview's first shutout in league play since a 27-0 win over Kennedy Catholic September 28, 2012. Meanwhile, Maplewood dropped to 0-2 with a 13-0 setback to visiting Cambridge Springs.
The Lakeview defense held Cochranton to 90 yards and five first downs while also forcing three turnovers. Lane Barber, Anthony Bonanni and Kendall Crocker all intercepted passes for the Sailors. Lakeview's defense ranks fifth in the county, holding teams to 192.5 yards per game.
Offensively, junior quarterback Gavin Murdock piloted a balanced attack. He completed 10 of 16 passes for 94 yards, including a touchdown toss to Ryan O'Polka. Crocker led Lakeview with 73 rushing yards, along with two touchdowns. Murdock also scored on a touchdown run.
Murdock ranks seventh in the area with 173 passing yards. Senior wide receiver Hunter Miller is seventh locally with eight receptions.
Maplewood dropped its opener at Northwestern in overtime, 17-14, before falling at home to Cambridge Springs. Junior quarterback Jason McFadden missed last week's game, which forced the Tigers to move his brother, junior Jesse McFadden, to quarterback. Jesse McFadden completed 7 of 20 passes for 89 yards. He threw three interceptions.
Senior Kaleb Donor leads Maplewood with 111 rushing yards this season. He ran for 1,668 yards last season to help Maplewood advance to the D-10 title game.
The Maplewood defense allows only 203.5 yards per game. With a new quarterback and four new starters on the offensive line, the Tigers' offense has averaged only 145 yards over the first two weeks of the season. Head coach Bryan Borkovich is in his ninth season.
Maplewood defeated visiting Lakeview in the 2019 season opener, 40-0. Donor ran for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Crocker led Lakeview with 35 rushing yards.
Maplewood leads the all-time series 18-10. Maplewood has won six straight home games against the Sailors. Lakeview's last win in Guys Mills came September 11, 1992, when head coach Bernie Davis guided the Sailors to a 25-8 victory.
The Maplewood field has historical significance for Lakeview. Lakeview defeated Fairview, 17-0, November 7, 1986 in a District 10 Division II semifinal held at Maplewood. That marked Lakeview's first-ever playoff game and playoff victory. Lakeview had been scheduled to play at Maplewood in the fifth week of the 1986 regular season but a teachers' strike in the PennCREST School District caused the game to be canceled.
The teams first met October 21, 1978 as Crawford County League opponents. Maplewood prevailed at Lakeview, 27-7. The teams played annually as French Creek Valley Conference foes from 1980 to 2003.
Hickory at Slippery Rock, 7:00 p.m.
Region 3 leader Hickory (2-0) could take firm control of the league race with a win Saturday night at Slippery Rock (1-1). However, the host Rockets could grab the inside track to the region title by handing the Hornets their first setback of the season.
Saturday night's game features the area's top two passing attacks as both teams average over 220 passing yards per game. Hickory senior quarterback Michael Henwood has thrown for 465 yards and a county-high five touchdown passes.
Meanwhile, Slippery Rock sophomore quarterback William Mokel has 443 passing yards and three touchdown strikes in his first two starts. He has completed an area-best 65.5 percent (38 of 58) of his passes this year. He also leads the 13-team area in completions and attempts.
The quarterbacks have produced comparable numbers but their respective styles vary significantly. Mokel has attempted only two runs this season. Henwood, a District 10 sprint champion in track and field, has rushed for 132 yards and four touchdowns in 2020. He averages 10.2 yards per carry.
Henwood scored on touchdown runs of 13, 72 and 35 yards in the second half last week at Sharon, helping Hickory pull away to a 48-16 victory. He also threw three touchdown passes and finished with 198 passing yards on 13-for-24 accuracy.
Senior H-back Matthew Cannone caught five balls for 93 yards and two scores while junior wide receiver Ramarion Whitehead also caught a touchdown pass.
Henwood ranks eighth overall -- and first among local quarterbacks -- in rushing yardage. Junior tailback Clay Wiesen is sixth in the area with 155 rushing yards. Senior tight end Rocco Iacino leads the county with 145 receiving yards. Whitehead is fourth in the area with 10 receptions.
Hickory's pass defense has held opposing quarterbacks to 42.6 percent (20 of 47) accuracy this season. The Hornets will be tested by Slippery Rock's multiple spread attack.
Last week in a 34-21 setback at archrival Grove City, Slippery Rock executed 73 offensive plays. The Rockets finished with 23 first downs and 317 yards. Slippery Rock also converted 11 of 16 third-down opportunities.
Mokel completed 20 of 35 passes for 212 yards. He completed passes to six different receivers. Senior wide receiver Ethan Plesakov caught nine passes for 98 yards while junior John Sabo added four catches for 32 yards.
Plesakov is tied with Hickory's Whitehead for fourth place in the local rankings with 10 catches. Sabo and fullback Shane Thompson have both caught seven passes. Thompson leads the Rockets with 141 rushing yards. He ranks seventh in the area in rushing. Sophomore halfback Brett Galcik has added 66 rushing yards. He also leads the area in yards per catch, averaging 27.2 yards on his four receptions.
Hickory pulled away from Slippery Rock for a 42-21 home win last season. Henwood ran for 179 yards, including a 92-yard scoring run. He also completed 12 of 18 passes for 156 yards and three touchdowns. Cannone, current junior Jackson Pryts and Whitehead all caught touchdown passes. Plesakov caught four passes for 66 yards. Current junior Brendan Earl caught a touchdown pass for Slippery Rock.
Slippery Rock won the last meeting on its home field, a 28-17 triumph October 12, 2018. The Rockets trailed 17-14 after three quarters before rallying for the win, which clinched a playoff berth.
Hickory leads the all-time series 20-10. The teams first met in 1988 as members of the Keystone Football League. That marked Slippery Rock's first season of football in District 10. Hickory won the first meeting, 28-7, October 14, 1988 at Slippery Rock. This is the first Saturday night regular season meeting between the programs.
In 1996, field renovations prevented Hickory from playing on its home field. The Hornets played six road games, two "home" games at Kennedy Christian (now Kennedy Catholic) and one "home" game at Farrell. Hickory fell to Slippery Rock, 14-2, in Mercer County Athletic Conference action Saturday afternoon, October 19, 1996 at Kennedy Christian's Butala Stadium.
The start time for this year's game had been 1 p.m. However, kickoff has been pushed to 7 p.m. due to Saturday being a Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) date.
The teams will play Saturday, October 17 in Hermitage to close the regular season. That will also be a Saturday night game.
The game can be heard on 790 WPIC. Live stats available here.
Grove City at Sharon, 7:00 p.m.
Saturday night, Sharon hosts Grove City in a rematch of the 2018 and 2019 District 10 Class 3A championship games. It is the second of three consecutive home games for Sharon (0-2).
Sharon and Grove City both opened their home schedules last week against each team's respective archrival. Sharon tightly battled Hickory for three quarters before falling 48-16. Meanwhile, Grove City pulled out a 34-21 home victory over Slippery Rock in a game that featured 145 offensive plays and 50 combined first downs.
Grove City's no-huddle offense accumulated 27 first downs in last week's win. That's the highest total for the Eagles since picking up 27 first downs October 7, 2016 at DuBois. Grove City finished with 468 total yards, including 252 rushing yards. Junior running back Curtis Hovis ran for a career-high 181 yards and two scores on 28 carries while sophomore Anthony Nemec added 90 yards and a touchdown.
Senior quarterback Logan Breese completed 17 of 22 attempts for 216 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman Gavin Lutz, who shares the county lead with 12 receptions, grabbed six passes for 75 yards. Junior Anthony Pereira added five catches for 85 yards and a third quarter touchdown that put the Eagles up 28-14.
While the Grove City defense yielded 317 yards and 23 first downs, the Eagles also came up with several critical stops. Grove City forced Slippery Rock to turn over the ball on downs twice inside the Eagles' 30. Sophomore cornerback Trey Reznor intercepted a pass at the Grove City 10 with 1:18 left in the first half, preserving a 14-14 tie.
Hovis leads the county with 53 rushing attempts this season. He ranks fourth with 255 rushing yards. Breese is the area's third-leading passer with 372 passing yards. Pereira is second locally with 142 receiving yards while Lutz's 112 receiving yards are No. 5 on the county chart.
No Mercer County player has been involved in more offensive plays this season than Sharon senior quarterback Brett Salsgiver. The first-year starter has 67 combined rushing and passing attempts this season. His 247 total offensive yards rank 10th overall and sixth among county quarterbacks through the first two weeks of the season.
Salsgiver opened the scoring last Friday night against Hickory by throwing a three-yard touchdown pass to sophomore Labrae Norris. Salsgiver finished the game 5 of 16 for 52 yards. He also ran for 63 yards on 15 attempts.
Junior wide receiver Ja'On Phillips returned a kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter against Hickory. Phillips leads Sharon with eight receptions and 96 receiving yards. He is seventh in the area in receptions and sixth locally with 277 all-purpose yards.
Saturday's game features two of the area's top kickers in Sharon senior Jake Auchter and Grove City junior John Hake. Auchter drilled a 23-yard field goal last week while Hake kicked four field goals last year.
Sharon opponents are 10 for 18 (56 percent) on third down this year. The Tigers have been outscored 61-9 in the second half. Grove City opponents have converted 15 of 26 (58 percent) third downs. The Eagles have been outscored 27-7 in the first quarter this season.
Sharon won both meetings last year. The Tigers held on for a 30-23 home win October 4. Grove City drove deep into Sharon territory in the closing moments but defensive tackle Thomas Dawson preserved the win with an interception at the line of scrimmage.
The teams combined for 891 total yards, with Grove City owning a 471-420 edge. Breese threw for 328 yards. Sharon quarterback Lane Voytik threw for 386 yards and four touchdowns. Phillips caught five balls for 71 yards.
Sharon then captured its third consecutive district title by outlasting Grove City, 33-21, November 16 at Slippery Rock University. Then-junior Tyvell Richardson sealed the win for Sharon by scoring on a 37-yard touchdown run with 1:39 remaining in the game. He ran for 89 yards on 13 carries.
The Tigers held a 15-minute edge in time of possession, thanks in part to a 10-for-15 effort on third down. Grove City went 2 for 11 on third down. Sharon held Grove City to a season-low 241 offensive yards.
Sharon leads the all-time series since 1916, 40-15-2. Since Sharon rejoined District 10 in 1982, the Tigers have won 26 of 34 meetings with Grove City. The teams did not play between 1940 and 1982. After the 1939 season, Grove City joined Corry, Greenville, Oil City, Sharpsville and Titusville in a District 10 "Class A" conference. Sharon joined District 7 in 1944.
Grove City played at Sharon on Thanksgiving Day in both 1928 and 1929. Sharon won the 1928 meeting, 13-0. The teams tied 0-0 the next year. In 1930, snow postponed the teams' Thanksgiving Day meeting at Sharon. Nine days later, December 6, 1930, Grove City secured a 6-0 win.
Grove City is 3-18 all-time at Sharon Tiger Stadium, including a 3-16 mark against Sharon. Grove City fell to Reynolds in the 1987 District 10 Division II title game, held at Sharon, 33-7. Fifteen years later, Warren defeated Grove City in the D-10 Class AAA semifinals, 18-9, at Tiger Stadium.
This is the first Saturday regular season game between Grove City and Sharon since September 15, 2001. That game had been scheduled for Friday, September 14, but the schools moved it to Saturday night in Grove City after the September 11 attacks.
Grove City will host Sharon in the regular season finale October 16.
The game will be heard on Sports Radio 96.7.
