Dan Foor Talks About Montoursville

Shamokin Area searches for their 5th win of the season on Friday at Montoursville. The last time the Indians had wins in season was 2005 after 19-16 upset of Southern Area to start that campaign. How will the Indians perform?

Shamokin Area are 4-0 at home with a home game remaining next week against the Danville Ironmen. Then the Indians will take some short trip to Shikellamy and Mount Carmel.   The end of the Indian's schedule is a little tough, but Danville will be coming off a big game with Southern.  Shikellamy will be coming off a game with Mount Carmel.  Mount Carmel will be coming of games with Shikellamy and Southern Area.  Shamokin Area may able to take advantage of someone coming out flat.

The task at hand will be this week.  Jim Bergen is stepping down after 24 years at the helm of Montoursville. The Warriors have wins against Central Columbia and Jersey Shore, but have looked bad in their four losses.  Montoursville is a very young team and the experience should pay dividends to the new coaching staff.

Last two times Shamokin hit the road, the team basically didn't get off the bus and were beaten early.  How will the Indians react to the longest bus ride of the season.  Basically, you could call this a playoff game.  Shamokin with be underdogs the rest of the season.
