Greendale Martin Luther (4-0, 2-0 MCC) at Shoreland Lutheran (0-4, 0-2)
When: 7 tonight
Where: 9026 12th St., Somers
Series note: Martin Luther defeated the Pacers, 48-6, in last year’s contest. Current senior Darios Crawley-Reid had 193 yards rushing and five touchdowns for the Spartans.
Player to watch: Sr. QB/LB Noah Ahles, who missed the first three games of the season, but was the Pacers’ leading receiver, second leading rusher and second leading tackler last week against Burlington Catholic Central. ... “While his main position has always been quarterback, his athleticism and outstanding hands make him exceptionally dangerous as a wide receiver as well,” Shoreland coach Paul Huebner said. ... Ahles made a handful of “highlight-reel catches” last week, including a 75-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. ... “This week we plan to line him up just about anywhere offensively, defensively and on special teams against a very good Martin Luther team,” Huebner said. “It’s been a pleasure working with Noah since he was a freshman who contributed to our varsity defense during our 2015 playoff run, and I hope he gets to play more football at the next level.”
Key stat: Crawley-Reid has recorded 871 rushing yards on 59 carries and 17 touchdowns and currently is ranked fourth in the state in yards and first in touchdowns by WisSports.net.
