It’s the heart of WCAC season now and DeMatha can’t afford a let down after securing a big win last week over O’Connell. This week the Stags face a speedy McNamara squad, and even though the Mustangs have struggled, DeMatha coach Elijah Brooks knows his team must be prepared for a fight. DeMatha comes into the game 2-1 in the WCAC, good for second place in the league. McNamara has a 1-1 WCAC record, and last week lost a tough one to Good Counsel 45-21.
Here’s Coach Brooks’ game preview:
This game against McNamara is another important game as we head into the back stretch of the season. Don’t let their record fool you, they have a very explosive offense that we must contain. Their quarterback does a great job as a playmaker and they have receivers who can stretch the field. We have to keep the quarterback contained and force him into difficult throws. Offensively, it always starts with offensive line. They have been improving every week and we need another big week from them controlling the line of scrimmage. We have to be more disciplined as a team this week limiting the penalties. Another week in the WCAC, we have to come ready to play! Go Stags!
