This week’s matchup is a good one! The Grants Pirates and our hometown Hilltoppers. The Pirates come into the game 0-2 but losing two close competitive games against tough opponents. The Toppers come in 1-1 with a huge win over Pojoaque in the opener and a brutal loss to Moriarty last Friday.
Injuries could be the story for the Toppers this week though as we lost Senior All district Linebacker Joey Sorenson to a collarbone injury early against Moriarty and timetable for his return is still up in the Air. Offensively we also lost sophomore Dillan Irish and have a few others with hurts and hobbles. Trainer Mick Matuszak has definitely worked hard this week to keep guys healthy and on a team with low numbers will have his work cut out for him going forward.
What to look for in tonight’s game will be a heavy dose of the ground and pound. Expect to see Nick Quarteri, Ryan McNiel, and Kevin Maresca carry the largest portion of the load. Defensively we will look to Aaron Waller and that big front line to continue to rack up the tackles and hold the Pirates back!
Should be exciting!!! See ya under the lights Friday Night!!! 7p.m.!
