Lycoming looking for a piece of first place in the MAC

Jr WR John Sibel makes great catch
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - For the second straight year, the Lycoming College football team will enter the final week of the season looking for a piece of the school's 15th Middle Atlantic Conference title. The first piece that will need to fall into place is that the Warriors need a win against Stevenson in the season finale to have a chance at the conference title.
The second piece in the puzzle is that first-place Lebanon Valley needs to love to fourth-place Albright. The Warriors (6-3 overall, 6-2 MAC) also have a chance to secure a bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the 13th time in school history if Widener defeats Delaware Valley.

Stevenson (4-5 overall, 3-5 MAC) is looking to complete its first .500 season in the third year of the program's existence.

Warrior Notes
• The Warriors are 6-7 all-time in the state of Maryland, but have not lost there since a 10-7 loss to Western Maryland in 1980.

• Senior Kabongo Bukasa became the 25th player in school history to record 200 tackles in a career with his first of four stops against FDU-Florham.

• Junior Craig Needhammer needs 89 more yards to move past Cory Sheridan (2,398, 1989-92) and into the top five in school history in career rushing yards.

• Junior quarterback Tyler Jenny need 169 more yards to become the 14th player in school history to throw for 2,000 yards in a season.

• Senior Matt Atkinson needs three more receptions to tie Tim Dumas (1997) and Steve Verton (1995) for third in school history with 58.

• Senior Dwight Hentz needs half a sack to become the 14th player in school history to record 20 in a career.
