Improving Junior Indians closing in on .500 season
One goal for a coach is to see his team get better with each week and each game. Coach Waylon Dunn said he could see some definite improvement in his junior Indians (3-4-1) following their 14-6 win over Cross County last Thursday at Marked Tree.
"I thought we played pretty good," said Dunn. "We were able to spread the ball around a little and that helps when we can take some pressure off. They've seem to have gotten a littler better each week. I'm really proud of them. They've done a good job."
Chris Montague gave the Indians their opening score when he scored from the one in the first period. Darius Ivy punched over the conversion and the Indians had all the points they needed to win at 8-0.
The Thunderbirds cut the lead to 8-6later in the third quarter. But Juawn Price put the game away with a six yard TD in the final period. The PAT failed, but the final, 14-6, was set.
"Defensively we played real well," concluded Dunn. "They scored in third, but we helped them with a couple of penalties. We shut them down once inside the 10, but the whole defense had their moments.
Price led the rushing with 10 carries for 116 yards while Montague had nine carries for 64 yards. Ivy finished with eight carries for 61 yards.
Marked Tree travels to Rector tomorrow (Thursday) for their season finale. Game time is 7 p.m.
