GMC faces rival in final regular season game



“They’re going to commit seven guys in the box on defense to try and stop the run, which makes sense,” Williams said. “I’m sure they will look at our numbers and our production and say we’re going to make you beat us in the air.”

Going into Sunday’s game, Williams admits the number one priority is eliminating mistakes.

“We just got to go out there and protect the football and take advantage of opportunities when they present themselves,” he said.

Sunday’s game will be a heated matchup between the two teams, as the contest will be Lackawanna’s final game of the season.

“It’s going to be an emotional game for us, both because it’s become a pretty heated rivalry over the years and for them this is their last shot. There is no bowl game on the horizon for them,” Williams said. “We told the kids all week that it’s going to be as physical of a game they’ve played all year. They’re going to be trying to take us out of contention to play for a national championship, and we’re going to be fighting to give us that opportunity to play for a national championship.”

GMC and Lackawanna kick off at 1 p.m. on Sunday, with a live webcast catching all of the action for Bulldog fans at
