Stevenson-Pacific Grove football

Friday's game
Stevenson (2-1) at Pacific Grove (2-2), 7:30 p.m.
 Two teams that are day and night offensively.
 The Pirates could throw the ball 40 times while Pacific Grove hopes to run it 40 plus times, chewing up the clock and keeping the opponents aerial attack grounded.
 Noah Cryns showed no ill effects from a two-week layoff, compiling over 300 yards in total offense last week while accounting for six touchdown in a lopsided win over Marina.
 An all-league tailback last fall, Cryns has been efficient behind center, completing 8-of-10 last week, three for touchdowns.
 Counting the first five minutes of last week's game with Carmel, Stevenson had outscored opponents 102-13.
 But that 12-0 lead quickly evaporated as the Pirates gave up 41 unanswered points in dropping their 15th straight game to Carmel.
 Stevenson rebounded well from last year's loss to Carmel, falling to Pacific Grove on a failed two-point conversion in the final minute.
 Casey Mornhinweg has thrown for over 900 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Pirates. Pacific Grove  has been torched for over 300 yards threw the air twice this year.
 Will Lansbury and Kenny Pich are two big targets for Mornhinweg, with the 6-2 Lansbury having caught 32 passes for nearly 500 yards and seven touchdowns this year.
 Don't be surprised if Cryns lines up against Lansbury. But if Pacific Grove doesn't get any pressure on Mornhinweg, it won't matter who is defending the Pirates receiving core.
