Woodland vs. Maplesville

The Maplesville Red Devils take their flawless record to Woodland Friday night to take on the Woodland Bobcats. Both teams bring in high scoring offenses and tough defenses.

Coach Brent Hubbert's Red Devils (8-0, 7-0) average almost 49 points per game and only allow seven points per contest. He knows his defense will have to show up for this game.

"We have to play solid defense and know where to be on defense," Hubbert said. As for his high-powered offense, they have not had a problem so far, but they are facing a tough Bobcat defense. "On offense, we can't have turnovers. No turnovers. We have to control the game."

That sounds a lot like what Woodland (7-2, 6-1) needs to do. Coach Larry Strain brings in an offense that averages over 26 points per game this season and only allows 13 per game.

The Bobcats have had an excellent season. They slipped up two weeks in a row with losses to Wadley and Randolph County, but they should be ready for the big game this week.
The keys to this game are to have no mistakes on either side of the ball. On offense, both teams need to take care of the ball and control the clock. On defense, do not give up the big play. source for Alabama high school football.
