DeMatha is off to one of the best starts in recent memory, but in the Washington Area Catholic Conference, there is no rest. This weekend the Stags face a tough Bishop McNamara squad that has a high-powered offense. DeMatha Head Coach Elijah Brooks knows the Mustangs are a threat to the Stags unblemished WCAC record.
One of the biggest question marks for the Stags comes at quarterback. John Lovett will miss the game for DeMatha, and Lovett has played exceptionally all season. Brooks addressed his QB situation:
Injuries are a part of football, but Brooks has the team focused on beating the Mustangs.
We hate to have any injuries, especially at the quarterback position, but we have other guys who are ready to step up and fill in. We have the utmost confidence in the team that they will pull everything together for Saturday.
McNamara started the season 5-0 before losing last week to Good Counsel. The Mustangs look like an up-and-comer in the WCAC, especially with new coach Keith Goganious. DeMatha will square off with McNamara at 2 p.m. Saturday.
