|Ouachita on road to Pineville|
The Ouachita Lions (1-2) will look to bounce back after a 16-7 rivalry loss to the Ruston Bearcats last Friday night.
"We didn't execute as well as we needed to," said Ouachita head coach John Carr. "You are not going to win against good teams with mistakes. Physically we have some talent, but we are not playing very smart right now."
Ouachita also lost another important rivalry game when they lost at Neville 55-34 to start the 2009 campaign.
"I think that playing Neville and Ruston in back-to-back weeks was good," Carr said. "Those kind of games are going to help us down the road."
Carr said the number of turnovers and penalties are keeping the Lions from winning consistently right now. The team has fumbled 14 times with three turnovers while also being whistled for 24 penalties in just three games.
Ouachita had too many fumbles and miscommunications against Ruston and has worked very hard this week to get that corrected, Carr said.
"We need to get back to fundamentals," Carr said. "We had some communication problems and fumbles. I would also like to see us be more aware on defense to know the situation and looking for a pass on 3rd and 10 and things like that."
Quarterback Quinton Wheeler has progressed well and coaches believe when he has been in more game situations, he will be an even bigger asset to the offense.
"Hopefully he will grow and play more consistent," Carr said. "And not go overboard with things."
The Lions hit the road for their first long road trip of the season as they travel to Pineville to open district 1-5A against the Pineville Rebels (1-2).
"Pineville is looking for a win, they are hungry," Carr said. "It will be our first long bus ride and a new environment for our kids and coaching staff. They are physical and they have a real good running game."
The Pineville Rebels will host Ouachita for the first time ever. It is also the first meeting between the two teams in a district contest.
Running back Derrick Milton for the Rebels is one of the top rushing threats in central Louisiana this year.
The kickoff at Pineville is slated for 7 p.m. and the game will be on the radio with a 6:30 p.m. pre-game show on Rock 106.1 FM.
