Alright, honest opinions and pointed questions are not always welcomed on this web site. But here we go.
Zephyr JV is a better than average JV and gave Lingleville a much better game than Lohn would have. But, they are still a JV. That being said, Lingleville did not run the spread with timing routes like I expected. They ran what I would call a wing-T with some power running and a lot of timing routes off of play action. It looked really good.
I expected Gordon to beat Newcastle by more than 14. Is there a story behind this? Did Gordon hold some players out for one reason or another?
I was a little disappointed that Gustine was unable to handle Morgan.
I new May had a way to go in bringing their blocking around to near last years form. I really thought they would score a few more points than they did.
Coach Lee at Strawn is doing his usual superb coaching job, building the offense around the talent that he has to work with. Strawn scored a few more points than I expected, without any power running game! Hey, just run around a little, find someone deep and connect on the bomb. Why I ever thought that someone who can throw a discus 150+feet couldn't throw a football even further is beyond me!
Gordon run blocking was very weak. Borderline pathetic. Newcastle's effort had something to with that. Of note was Gordon's last drive in the 3rd quarter into the 4th: 16 plays, 57 yards; TO on downs at the Newcastle 4.....
Bulldogs turned the ball over on three kickoffs in the first quarter. Hard to score when you don't have the ball. Once Zephyr got the momentem midway through the second quarter, May never could get it back. All in all it was a good hard hitting game to watch.
