Lycoming Football Vs King's game notes

#10 John Sibel a Jr WR  from Morrisville, Pa. / Pennsbury HS grabs a 27 yard pass from QB Tyler Jenny. Sibel averaged 20 yards per catch against Albright, the team best. He also had the most receiving yards for the Warriors at 60. A great day for the junior wide receiver.
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Back in August, the Lycoming College football team probably looked forward to week eight when it faced a King's program that had won four games in the last three years after a stretch that included four straight games against perennial contenders. Entering November, though, King's doesn't just want to play spoiler - it enters the last three weeks of the season one game out of the three-way tie for first place, making Saturday, Nov. 2's showdown in Wilkes-Barre with Lycoming another critical piece to sort out the Middle Atlantic Conference champion.

The Warriors (5-2 overall, 5-1 MAC) are coming off a 20-17 overtime win against Albright, while the Monarchs (4-3 overall, 4-2 MAC) are flying high after a 21-14 overtime win at Delaware Valley.

Warrior Notes
• Assistant head coach Steve Wiser has been a part of 300 wins with Lycoming College, 291 during his 40 years as an assistant coach and nine during his four years as a player.

• Junior Craig Needhammer has five 100-yard rushing games this season, the most for a Warrior since Josh Kleinfelter did it five times in 2010.

• Needhammer needs 89 more yards to become the 10th player in school history to post 1000 in a season

• Senior Kabongo Bukasa is eight tackles shy of becoming the 25th player in school history to record 200 in a career.

• Senior Matt Atkinson became the 20th player in school history to reach 1,000 career receiving yards, with the last of his five catches against Albright.

• Atkinson needs nine more receptions to become the 12th player in school history to post 50 in a season

• Senior Zack Czap needs one more field goal to become the third player in school history to make 25 in a career.
