This week Tyrone takes on the 4-5 Huntingdon Bearcats, who will defend their home field against the 2-7 Golden Eagles.

Last week Huntingdon clinched a spot in the playoffs beating Central 14-7. That win also knocked Tyrone out of the playoffs, so Tyrone will be playing for pride in their final game of the season.

Like Tyrone, the Bearcats have had a rough season with injuries and loses. Huntingdon has been getting whooped by most of the same teams as Tyrone, so both teams have had a very similar season and record.

“For us seniors this is our last game as a Golden Eagle and I’d like to get a win. Hopefully we can go out on the field one last time together and make it happen,” said, senior lineman Kaleb Snook. ”

The Bearcats and Golden Eagles share many common opponents.  Among them Huntingdon lost to Bellefonte 47-3, Clearfield 28-16, Penns Valley 43-28, and lost to Bald Eagle 34-0.

They beat beat Bishop Carroll 20-6, Philipsburg-Osceola 56-0, and they beat Central last week 14-7 to knock Tyrone out of the playoffs.

Huntingdon’s offensive line is small, so they will most likely pass the ball and run to the outside.

This will be one of the first games that Tyrone has a size advantage.

“For us seniors this is our last game as a Golden Eagle and I’d like to get a win. Hopefully we can go out on the field one last time together and make it happen,” said senior lineman Kaleb Snook.

On the season Huntingdon has  1213 receiving yards, averaging 12.1 yards a reception. They also have 963 rushing yards, averaging 3.4 yards per carry. In total they have 2177 yards.

Due to their lack of size they like to run an offense very similar to what Penns Valley ran.

They like to pass the ball to their receivers, and let them make big plays happen for their team. They like to throw to number 80, senior wide receiver Andrew Miller. They also like to throw the ball deep to the 6’4″ Miller to let him go up and get the ball.

The Bearcats are trying to beat Tyrone to get a better playoff spot. Huntingdon is also talking trash on social media on how they are going to beat Tyrone to get their 700th win.

Expect to see a close game due to the very similar team strategies and players.

This is Tyrone’s last game this season, so above all they need to go out onto that field and have fun competing.
