Lycoming play’s Bridgewater, Va. on Saturday at David Person Field, a 1:00pm start.  Bridgewater has gone to the NCAA Playoffs in 2000-2005, but this is has started out with a 1-2 record.  Lycoming is trying to win two in a row and five in a row at home.

We’re Going Streaking
The Warriors carry a home winning streak of four games into today’s matchup. Lycoming won the final three home games of the 2007 season, defeating Wilkes, FDU-Florham and King’s, and opened the 2008 season with a win against Susquehanna last weekend.Eyes on 255. Lycoming has won 254-of-345 games since assistant head coach Steve Wiser joined the staff in 1974. Now in his 35th season, he has been an integral part of the Warriors 254-86-5 overall record in that time. Wiser, who serves as the defensive coordinator and also works with the secondary, has the team holding opponents to 246.0 yards per game this season.

Exacting Some Revenge
Lycoming has opened the season by making a statement in each of its first two games through shutting down a player that was successful in the previous meet-ing between the two teams. Ithaca quarterback Dan Juvan threw for a career high 309 yards and three touch-downs against the Warriors in 2007. In the opener, the Lycoming defense held him to just 142 yards and no touchdowns and held the team to 266 total yards. Susquehanna running back Dave Paveletz rushed for 116 yards and two touch-downs in the Crusaders’ 2007 victory. He entered the game last weekend averag-ing 102.5 yards per game before the Warrior defense shut him down. Paveletz finished the game with 56 yards.

Last Time Out
Bridgewater dropped to 1-2 on the season after suffering
its second-straight home loss last weekend, falling
21-14 at the hands of Ferrum. In the previous week,
Shenandoah defeated the Eagles 10-6 in the home
opener.

Bridgewater scored first when Tyler Kelly connected on
a 29-yard field goal on the Eagles’ first drive. Ferrum
then scored 21 unanswered points in the first half to
lead 21-3.

The Eagles scored on the final play of the half, when
Kelly kicked a 36-yarder to send the game to halftime
with Ferrum leading 21-6.

Bridgewater opened the second half with an onside kick
recovery and then quarterback Hagan Driskell hit Tyler
Beiler on a 65-yard touchdown pass. The Eagles faked the PAT and holder Patrick Smoot ran in for the two-point conversion to make the score 21-14 in favor of Ferrum.

The Eagles had the ball in Ferrum territory four more times in the second half, but could not score. Driskell completed 18-of-46 passes for 321 yards and Beiler set a Bridgewater record for receiving yards in a game with eight catches for 217 yards.
