|West Ouachita hosts 5A's Captain Shreve|
The West Ouachita Chiefs (1-1) will again step up into the Class 5A ranks this Friday night when they host the Captain Shreve Gators at Sims Stadium at 7 p.m.
The Chiefs will be looking to get back into the win column after a rough 41-27 loss at the Class 3A Winnfield Tigers last Friday night.
West Ouachita struggled with field position last week and could not put the breaks on the Winnfield rushing attack in time to get back in the game. Winnfield ate away at the clock in the second half which greatly limited the offensive touches for the Chiefs in the third and fourth quarters of the game.
This week against Captain Shreve, West Ouachita will look to get as many three-and-out situations as possible and keep the Gators offense off the field. If quarterback T.J. Murphy and running back Billy Minnifield keep progressing, it could be a fun year on offense for the Chiefs who are currently averaging over 27 points per game this season.
Captain Shreve, which typically operates out of the shotgun, will present a new challenge for the West Ouachita defense, which has seen its share of high profile rushing attacks over the past few weeks as they fought against both Pineville and Winnfield.
West Ouachita continues to refine their own shotgun passing attack that has seen marked improvement on the scoreboard for the Chiefs in the early part of the non-district schedule.
The passing attack came alive in the season opener against Pineville when Murphy passed for three touchdowns in a 28-21 last second victory for the Chiefs. Wide receiver Ray Moss, a senior, is a key for the passing game of the Chiefs.
The 6-2 wideout gives Murphy the tall, athletic target that can come up big on deep routes and fade routes. Murphy may have had the tallest task of all the players on this year's West Ouachita squad.
The 6-2 senior had to step into the starting role with a brand new offensive scheme that was installed at the beginning of fall camp. He has made it his mission to lead the team to victory and overcome the odds. So far, he has looked comfortable and strong armed, but was forced into too many mistakes by the tough Winnfield defense in the last game.
Billy Minnifield was held relativly quiet in the opening game against Pineville, but made some noise and showed some flashes of his potential at Winnfield after leading the Chiefs in rushing last season.
The game will be broadcast on the radio by ESPN 97.7 FM.
