Guide to Newcastle at Heritage Hall

by Jacob Unruh Modified: October 10, 2013 at 3:40 pm •  Published: October 10, 2013

When: 7 p.m., Thursday

Where: Pop Murray Field

Records: Newcastle 3-2, 1-0 District 3A-3; Heritage Hall 2-3, 1-1

Last week: Newcastle 33, Centennial 14; Heritage Hall 42, John Marshall 17

Players to watch: Newcastle — Zack Berge, RB. Berge scored on a pair of 1-yard runs in last week’s win against Centennial.

Heritage Hall — AJ Knowles, OL/DL. Knowles volunteered to move up front just before the season opened, and on defense it’s paid off tremendously. He has 22 tackles and three sacks this season.

Storylines: Newcastle — The Racers have been solid defensively, but the Chargers present some challenges offensively that could present matchup issues, particularly in slowing down quarterback Connor McGinnis.

Heritage Hall — The Chargers have survived their brutal opening. On paper, this looks like a game they should win. This could be a chance to find some consistency after regaining some confidence last week.

The pick: Heritage Hall 35, Newcastle 28
