Niagara Gazette — GI coach Dean Santorio said Corrao had a high ankle sprain and would be a game-time decision, while Stone isn’t expected back until next week.
Santorio said the key would be how his defense handled the option offense.
“It’s the type of offense where you have to be very disciplined and play assignment football,” he said. “It’s hard to simulate in practice, and you don’t want to get beat because of the speed of it.”
The Vikings won last year’s meeting, 35-21.
Niagara Falls at Frontier, 7 p.m. tonight
The Wolverines (0-1 Class AA) were blown out by a big, mauling team last week at Jamestown, and they get another in the Falcons.
“We are far better than we showed Friday,” said head coach Don Bass. “We only had one guy on both sides of the offensive and defensive lines that had any experience.”
Frontier blew out Clarence in its opener, 38-12, and Bass said his team knows the challenge the Falcons present.
“It was a sloppy game (against Jamestown), but we kept fighting,” Bass said. “We hurt ourselves. We have to play mistake free football.”
Barker/Roy-Hart at Lew-Port, 7 p.m. tonight
After beating Niagara-Wheatfield in a non-league rivalry game last weekend, the Lancers (1-0) open their Class B North schedule against the Raiders (0-1), who lost a league game to Albion in Week One.
The Lew-Port offense struggled against the Falcons, particularly along the offensive line. Head coach Jon Hoover said it’s simply a case of having to work harder.
“We kind of challenged (the line) this week to step up and come together as a unit,” Hoover said. “They had a big, strong line, and we didn’t match up well against that, but we still have to be able to play harder than we did. We didn’t finish our blocks, we didn’t move people, and that’s what we have to get better at.”
