|OCS travels to Mangham Friday|
The Ouachita Christian Eagles will hit the road Friday to take on the Mangham Dragons in a battle of former Class 1A rivals.
Mangham now resides in Class 2A with the new district alignments and OCS remained in Class 1A for the next two seasons.
OCS squeaked by St. Frederick High School in their jamboree contest last Friday night by a score of 22-21.
The bright spot in the jamboree for the Eagles was on special teams where the OCS unit returned a pair of kickoffs back for touchdowns and had a third return go deep into the oppositions' territory.
"Special teams were real good the other night," OCS head coach Steven Fitzhugh said. "We did not get to see too much offense. We had just 11 plays and they had 52 on offense."
The OCS defensive unit had some breakdowns in the second half of the jamboree contest that Fitzhugh and his staff have worked on correcting in practice this week.
"On defense we need to get better at assignment football and make some better tackles."
OCS is most concerned with the speed and athletic ability of the Mangham team which could present a real challenge during the 7 p.m. contest.
"Mangham has some quick, game-changing players on both sides of the ball," Fitzhugh said. "We have to keep everything in front of us and not let their speed get by us."
A new coaching staff and new offensive weapons await at Mangham where the Dragons are replacing Josh Wilson at quarterback.
Mangham will be looking to avenge a 51-29 thumping they received from OCS last year to begin the season.
OCS later went on to reach the Class 1A quarterfinal round of the playoffs.
Fans not able to attend the game in person can hear the game broadcast on the radio on 100.9 FM and the internet at www.hillradio.com.
