Johnstown, which opened Aug. 30 against Chillicothe, plays host to Fairfield Union on Friday, Sept. 6.

The Johnnies have never played the Falcons, who finished 2-8 last season.

The Falcons have gone 5-25 the past three seasons, but return 14 starters from last year. Coach Tim Bahen is in his second season and has changed to an option offense run by returning quarterback David Wolshire.

The Falcons run a 3-5 defense led by linemen Richie Mason, Andrew McMullen and Brice Winegardner.
