After a 9-point win last week over the Green County Dragons, head coach Rick Wood and the Glasgow Scotties (6-2, 2-0) look to stay on track Friday when they travel to Metcalfe County for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Hornets.
Over the course of the past few weeks Wood has been preaching two elements — discipline and intelligence, and the message appears to be working, as the Scotties have amassed 87 points during their last two games, while only allowing 16 in the process.
Wood said his team is aware of the battle that awaits them in Metcalfe County.
“They’re a good, young team,” he said. “I am really impressed with their backfield. Their backfield is skilled.”
Wood said the team played its best football of the season last week against Green County.
“The first three quarters against Green County, I think we played as well as we’ve played all year,” he said. “We didn’t have any turnovers and I think we had only one penalty. Anytime we don’t have any turnovers or penalties … that’s a great start, plus, we just felt like our blocking and tackling was a lot sharper.”
Wood said his message remains the same — keep plugging away and play disciplined football.
