Shamokin vs. Lewisburg 2013 Preview

Although hopes seemed high for Shamokin Area coming into 2013, the Indians find themselves at 0-4. A 3-1 Lewisburg team comes into town looking for the 4th win and being in the mix of the AA playoffs.  The Indians have been competitive against Pottsville and Danville, while lackluster against Jersey Shore and especially Selinsgrove.

For Lewisburg, the scribes are calling this a possible trap game with Montoursville on the schedule for next week.  The Green Dragons may not be as big and strong as the 2012 (subtract PSU run on Brandon Smith), but they will be in the thick of the AA playoff race.  With a lone loss to Mount Carmel and a close game with Shikellamy, it is hard to gauge the overall strength of the Green Dragons.

Shamokin at time could play with anyone.  The problem has been consistency.  Their offensive has left their defense on the field for huge chunks of time throughout the season.  That is not a good formula.

In talking to Coach Cove this week, the staff feels once the ball gets rolling in the right direction things will really take off and snowball from there.  Let's hope that happens very soon.
