“They play real close to the line of scrimmage and they stop you a lot, but they can also give up big plays,” GM head coach Gary Sloan said.

Gehling and Leichtnam are both over 1,000 yards rushing on the season now.

The Superlarks (9-1 overall) will host No. 2 seeded Houston (8-2 overall) Friday at 7 p.m.

Houston, which beat Spring Grove 24-21 Saturday, beat GM in the regular season.

“We were hoping for a rematch with them,” Sloan said.
