Sheffield travels to Coudersport

It’s been a tough start to the season for the Sheffield Wolverines, and things don’t get any easier tonight when they travel to Coudersport to take on a 2-0 Falcons squad that has outscored its opponents 99-6 through two games.

The Wolverines have been hit hard by the injury bug, with Matt Dunham going down in Week 1 against Smethport and a couple more starters may be out against the Falcons.

The Wolverines are coming off of a 54-6 loss to Smethport and a 47-0 setback at Union/ACV as they attempt to get something positive going.

Steve Lojewski had 73 yards through the air in the Union/ACV game, completing nine passes.

The Wolverines will attempt to move the ball on a Coudersport defense that shut down a talented Elk County Catholic squad last week.

“They’re still working towards that family goal,” Sheffield head coach Chris Korbar told the Times Observer following last week’s game against Union/ACV. “I got to go back to the drawing board in some essence. A lot of injuries, a lot of different things. Guys just not talking and communicating.”

The Falcons do almost all of their offensive damage on the ground.

Running back Stephen Kelly leads the way with 261 yards, averaging 9 yards per carry, while quarterback Hayden Keck has 103 yards on the ground. As a team, Coudy has rushed for 630 yards through two games.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. from CARP park in Coudersport.
