|Sterlington hopes to slow down Winnfield rushing attack|
Attempting to bounce back after a loss can be both challenging and exciting on the football field.
That would be the case for the Sterlington Panthers this week.
The Panthers follow a hard fought 28-19 loss to the Rayville Hornets with a trip to Winnfield to tangle with the Tigers. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Sterlington (1-1) has continued to get better each week on both sides of the ball. Coaches have seen the offense become more consistent in rushing and passing situations. It has not, however, come to a point of satisfaction for the Panther Nation.
"We have to get better at execution in every phrase of the game," said Sterlington head coach Mike Collins. "Everyone needs improvement right now."
Logan Dobson led the Sterlington offense on a few key scoring drives in last week's contest with Rayville. Dobson was 11-of-23 passing for 169 yards.
Heading to Winnfield, though, the Panthers are concerned with the disadvantage they face in dealing with Winnfield's size. The Tigers (1-1) muscled out a 14-13 victory over Jonesboro-Hodge in week one before falling last week at Benton, 13-0.
"They are huge," Collins said. "They will try to run the ball down your throat."
Sterlington worked on improving its defensive pressure this week. There has been special attention paid to doing a better job of tackling and containing the vaunted Winnfield rushing attack.
While DeUndre Gray was a bright spot last week for Sterlington, the coaches want to see the offense get more people involved offensively in hopes of being successful against the Tigers.
