Injuries. Who is banged up. St.david coming off of a tough one against a traditional hard nose program. What appeared to be a dog fight. Superior coming off of a practice game on a weak valley Lutheran team.
Word on the 8 man street is that the score of the St David Mogollon game was not an indicator of what the game was really like. I heard St David had 2 TD's called back & Mogollon tagged their 2nd TD on late when the game was nearly over! It's tough to win in Mogollon, but this years Mogollon Team is not quite as strong as the traditional Mogollon Teams.
Copy. Looked at the box score and you are right. However I would still imagine that a potent offense like st David has only scoring 20 points until the 4th quarter I would bet they got hit a smug harder than superior did in their bout against VL.
I like both teams, I still think that Home Field Advantage is in effect; then turnovers & defensive stops will be the difference maker. I really like the 1 2 punch of Superior's QB/RB, but St David has a really good QB with weapons around him. IMO 2/3 best QB's in the division are playing in this game!
St David would have been without a starter who got a collapsed lung on a late hit in the Mogollon game. There was also a tragic student death in St. David on Thursday. I was suprised St David was beat so bad up in superior but the've had a lot to deal with this week and that probably was a factor. I hope they can bounce back like Benson did after a whipping.
