Line Mountain (5-2) and Newport (7-0) are set to face off this Friday at 7:00 PM. Line Mountain has witnessed its point totals drop over the past five games, a trend the team will certainly want to reverse.
Line Mountain claimed a 13 - 0 victory over Upper Dauphin Area last week. Line Mountain especially relied on sophomore Evan Herb, who threw for 209 yards and gained 32 yards on the ground, and junior Breven Derk, who caught for 106 receiving yards and netted one rushing touchdown. Derk has been a consistent playmaker for Line Mountain as this was the 4th good game in a row from him. Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Newport beat Juniata 14 - 7 last week.
The last time they met, Newport was the decided 37 - 0 victor. Line Mountain couldn't get the same offensive movement going as Newport (381 yards compared to 135 yards), so it will surely be hoping to change that this time around. Can Line Mountain avoid another defeat? We'll see on Friday.
