WEIMAR WILDCATS AT SHINER COMANCHES
The Wildcats make their second trip to Shiner, having faced St. Paul at the end of September.
The game marks the first time Shiner has played at home since September 21, a 48-6 win over Tidehaven.
"It is nice to come home after three weeks of games on the road,” Comanches head coach Steven Cerny said.
The Wildcats are 5-1, with a loss to Schulenburg 28-21, had their game with Burton cancelled due to weather and won their district opener against Kennedy 47-22.
Shiner is 6-1, only falling short to Lexington and is 1-0 in district after winning big at Yorktown,
The ‘Cats are a 75-percent run offense out of the pro style and shotgun. Ravondre Wicks, Reed Purdy and Clay Barton are the main threats running the football for Weimar.
“Wicks is a good all-purpose back,” Cerny said. “Barton has the highest passing percentage in the district and averages 9.7 yards a carry when he runs the ball. Our defense will have to keep a close eye on Wicks and Barton.”
Weimar runs the 3-3 stack defense and the down linemen are the strength on that side of the ball for the ‘Cats.
“Our offensive line will need to have another great game as Weimar’s down linemen are very strong,” Cerny said.
