Glasgow Scotties eager to face No. 2 Somerset

GLASGOW — The Glasgow Scotties, a young football team with nine new starters on each side of the football, has shown a lot of maturity so far this week in practice. After dropping a frustrating loss last week to Monroe County, the Scotties have impressed coach Rick Wood with their work ethic and focus in practice. While some teams let losses affect them in a bad way, the Scotties seem to have turned that around into a positive thing.

And that’s a good thing because the Scotties play host to the No. 2 ranked Somerset Briar Jumpers on Friday night at Royse Stadium.

“I think the game at Monroe County will affect us in a positive way,” said Wood. “We were 4-0 going into that game and a lot of times, a young team, because you’re winning, won’t see the mistakes and the flaws it is making. They don’t understand the urgency for them to get better.

“We’re hoping last Friday’s game was a wake-up call for us, that we better start cleaning some things up and become a more physical, more consistent football team.”

Kickoff for Friday’s game is 7 p.m.
