Corry’s defense
 
Corry’s defense, shown here at Mercyhurst University, will need to step up on Friday.
 
After two road trips, Corry’s football team returns to Sheen Field on Friday to host winless Girard.
“They run a wing-T offense so they will be run heavy with a lot of misdirection and some play action pass,” noted coach Jeff Goodwill. “They have a pretty athletic quarterback. Defensively, they are a base 4-4 with a lot of cover three.
“They're pretty young up front,” he claimed. “Their strength will be at the linebacker position.
Tight end Logan Harrington

Tight end Logan Harrington has become a big factor in Corry’s passing attack.

 
“We’ve played some good football during the first two weeks of the season,” said Goodwill. “We lost our momentum last week (at Grove City) and we need to get that back. A big win at home would be helpful in getting us back on the right track.”
What are the keys to winning this game?
“We need to get back to playing team defense,” Goodwill admitted. “We want to see the same effort defensively that we saw during the first two weeks. We also have to be fundamentally sound.
“Against wing-T teams, you can't afford to have anybody out of position on any play,” he stated. “Offensively we're going to continue to feature our run game, but we have to get our passing game going if we expect to win more games late in the season.”
Girard is coming off a 33-6 loss to Oil City. Todd Essman rushed for 73 yards and Dustin Roesch 56.
The YellowJackets lost to Fairview in week two, 27-26. Essman had two touchdowns as did quarterback Austin Barrett. Barrett ran 12 times for 79 yards and was 3 of 5 passing for 45 yards.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
