|Neville hopes to rebound against Marshall|
The Neville Tigers (1-1) are trying to move on after a heart breaking loss to rival West Monroe last week when the Rebels scored on a touchdown pass with just 41 seconds left to defeat Neville 30-27.
West Monroe stood tall defensively in the first half and led 23-7 at halftime before Neville scored 20 unanswered points to take a 27-23 lead with 9:21 remaining in the fourth quarter. Neville quarterback Taylor Burch was 13-of-30 passing for 282 yards and three touchdowns and one interception. The West Monroe defense was able to stifle the Neville rushing game as they gained just 22 yards on 14 carries.
"We made too many mistakes," Neville head coach Mickey McCarty said. "You can't do that against a good team. We have to execute better this week and correct mental mistakes."
Penalties will be one area that Neville will likely be anxious to correct after being flagged for a season-high 12 penalties and 115 penalty yards against West Monroe last Friday night.
All three touchdown passes out of the hand of Burch went to running back Jeremy Runner who went out of the game late in the fourth quarter. He should return for this week's Friday night home contest against the Marshall Mavericks from Texas.
"I think it was just cramps," McCarty said. "He should be fine."
Runner finished with eight catches for 255 yards and three touchdowns while John Diarse caught three passes from Burch for 25 yards. Runner also added a third quarter touchdown run against the top-ranked team in 5A last week.
Marshall is coming off a 41-14 win over Kilgore (Texas).
Marshall features one of the best rush defenses in Texas this season as they held Kilgore to just 78 yards rushing and forced three turnovers last week.
Neville defeated Marshall last year in the Lone Star state which will give the Mavericks even more incentive to put together a good game this week. The Neville offense will again have their work cut out for them and fans will be watching that matchup as a true key to the Tigers getting back into the win column.
The 7 p.m. kickoff at Bill Ruple Stadium and will be broadcast on 101.9 FM.
