Comets, Warriors ready for MWC clash

Logan visits NC in search of first NCC win.


“We’ve talked about some changes we need to make from a mental preparation and mental standpoint,” Urban said. “There’s a reason we have the record that we do and we have to figure that out. Our coaching staff has offered things to improve on to change our record and put some wins together before the playoffs, but we’ve got to make those changes in mental preparation. In practice we need to be more competitive with each other and compete in practice to the best of our ability. We have a lot of room for improvement and I don’t think we’ve tapped into our potential yet.

“This is a game we need to play well and play well on the road, which is something we really haven’t done in the conference. That’s something we’ve got to change.”

Bo Bullard has 740 yards rushing and 12 TDs to lead Logan. Isaac Eastburn has rushed for 486 yards and three TDs. Ryan Schrock has 235 yards rushing and three TDs and 315 yards passing and a TD. Braxton Berkshire has 68 tackles and 7.5 tackles for a loss.

Tri-County (1-6, 1-4 MWC) at Pioneer (6-1, 5-0 MWC)

One week before a showdown at West Central, the Panthers are hosting struggling Tri-County for senior night. The Cavaliers’ lone win was against Frontier. Two weeks ago they lost in overtime at South Newton, 53-47.

The Cavaliers are led by senior quarterback Riley Benner.

“Offensively they do a lot of things to prepare for,” Pioneer coach Mike Johnson said. “They run some option, some TCU stuff, veer and midline. They bring a lot of stuff to the plate offensively. Their record might not indicate it, but they’re not a bad team.

“I hope we’ll play well and get a W.”

Joe Miller has rushed for 1,098 yards and 15 touchdowns to lead the Panthers.

Cass (6-1, 4-1 MIC) at Mac (2-5, 2-3 MIC)

The Class 2A No. 8-ranked Kings hit the road tonight for a game against the Braves.

Cass has beaten Maconaquah 13 straight times, and the Kings own a 37-13 advantage in the all-time series. Cass coach Scott Mannering has a 23-5 record against Mac — including a 23-2 mark since 1988.

Generally, the Indianapolis Colts coach favors a long field-goal attempt to mark the end of practice. The deal being if the kick is good, practice — and camp itself — ends early. If not ... well, there's often a second chance.
