St. Thomas More (0-7, 0-5 Metro Classic) at Shoreland Lutheran (1-6, 0-5 Metro Classic)

When: 7 tonight

Where: Shoreland Lutheran (9026 12th St., Somers)

Series note: The Pacers have won the last five meetings by a combined 182-32 score, including shutouts in 2014 and 2017. … Last season, Shoreland notched a 56-20 road victory in Week 8 behind 362 rushing yards. … The Cavaliers' last win in the series came by a 36-6 final in Week 3 of the 2013 season.

Player to watch: Shoreland is looking for a big game from senior defensive lineman Ethan Walker (6-0, 285 pounds) in what's predicted to be cold, rainy weather. … "We will need his size and strength in the trenches on a muddy field (tonight)," Shoreland coach Paul Huebner said. "We actually thought we had lost him for the season to a wrist injury in the first week of practice, but thankfully it healed much quicker than his doctors originally predicted. He's a neat kid who is strong in his faith and very active in his church."

Key stat: Thomas More has been outscored 309-52 this season. … Shoreland will try to get its offense going after scoring just 13 points over its last four games, including a pair of shutouts.

FYI: Both teams have been eliminated from postseason contention and are tied for last place in the Metro Classic but look to end their seasons by picking up a win or two.
