TURBOTVILLE — Warrior Run won its first playoff game in school history last season. Saturday afternoon’s opponent, Mount Carmel Area, won six playoff games in the last three years, and has five state championship banners.

Couple that with the realization that most of the players who helped Warrior Run win that playoff game last season have graduated, and it tells a daunting task for third-year head coach Chris Long and his Defenders in this Pennsylvania Heartland Athletic Conference Division III (PHAC-III) game. Mount Carmel has won all four previous matchups, outscoring them 211-54.
