DuBois, Karns City to Air Live on exploreJefferson Tonight

KARNS CITY, Pa. (EYT) – DuBois (5-4) visits Karns City (9-0) tonight in the RRR Roadhouse KSAC Game of the Week.

In their first-ever meeting last year, the Beavers beat the Gremlins 35-31 in DuBois, so it’s now a matchup in Butler County for the rematch.

The unbeaten Gremlins are rolling along, coming off a 62-6 rout of Punxsutawney last week. Other than a 48-40 double overtime struggle of a win against Keystone in Week 8, the Gremlins have been impressive defensively. They outgunned Central Tech, 58-34, in Week 7, but other than that, they’ve limited their other seven opponents to just five touchdowns and 33 points.

Offensively, Karns City averages 415 yards of offense, sporting two quarterbacks with nearly identical passing numbers and four players with 400 or more rushing yards.

In the backfield, Collin Dunmyre (603 yards, 6 TDs), Chandler Turner (500 yards, 7 TDs), Maverick Kelsea (489 yards, 11 TDs) and quarterback Cullen Williams (432 yards, 6 TDs) have all gotten carries. Williams (24-for-45, 423 yards, 3 TDs) and Jacob King (32-for-51, 465 yards, 6 TDs) have taken similar snaps at quarterback.

Evan Stitt (23 catches, 352 yards, 2 TDs) is the top receiver.

Defensively, Kelsea leads the team with 7.4 tackles per game. Turner has a team-high five interceptions, tie for the district lead. They’ll have their hands full against a high-flying Beavers offense averaging 540 yards per game.
