ABOUT THE GAME
This game has possible playoff implications for each squad – Union/ACV in Class 1A and Keystone in Class 2A.
Both teams are coming off big wins over D9 League Small School North opponents last week with Union/ACV taking down Port Allegany at home to improve to 2-4 on the year, while Keystone (3-3) went up to Sheffield and rolled past the Wolverines Saturday.
If both teamsm, who are under first-year head coaches (Brad Dittman at Union/ACV and Ryan Smith at Keystone) want to stay in the playoff hunt, a win Thursday night is imperative.
Union/ACV is paced by quarterback Luke Bowser as well as freshman playmaker Caden Rainey.
Keystone looks to quarterback Isaak Jones and running back Nick Weaver to run the offense.
