FARWELL – The Bucktail Bucks will welcome Muncy to Dwyer Memorial Field this Friday night, hoping to be competitive with a young and rebuilding Indian team.
Bucktail is 0-3 after a 52-14 loss to undefeated (4-0) Canton last Friday. Junior running back Gage Sutliff was again the headline-maker for the Bucks. He gave Bucktail an early 8-0 lead on the back of an 88-yard touchdown run and 2-point conversion. But Canton responded with 52 unanswered points until Sutliff scored his second 6-pointer in the final quarter. He led the Buck offense with 235 rushing yards and all 14 points.
Muncy last week fell to 2-2 with a 40-13 loss to South Williamsport. The Indians took the District 4 division title a year ago but lost a large group of talented seniors. They did put up 344 yards in the loss to South. They feature a freshman quarterback in Branson Eyer who threw for a career-high 139 yards; his cousin, freshman Ross Eyer led the receivers with three catches for 95 yards.
Muncy opened the season with a 35-6 loss to Warrior, followed by a 42-20 win over Cowanesque Valley and a 24-14 win over Towanda. They downed the Bucks, 45-0, a year ago.
