Although it was only an exhibition game, the George George McDougall Mustangs opened the season with a 29-12 win over Grand Prairie over the weekend.
Christopher Glass, the Head Coach of the Mustangs talked about the game.
“They were a tough team. They hit hard, they were physical and they were big. But our skill really shined brightly and the biggest strength was our grade 10 play. The Player of the game was Kohen Bohnet, our grade 10 quarterback, and the player of the game on defence was Gabe Osenda, our grade 10 defensive tackle. So, it's good to see the youth movement taking over.”
Glass went on to talk about how their next game is against another Airdrie team, W.H. Croxford High School
“We play at four o'clock on Friday here in Airdrie against W.H Croxford. We've played this team last year in the inaugural West Side championships, and last year, we won, but this year it is going to be quite competitive. They just came off a 48-0 victory over Chestermere. It's going to be a beautiful day for a football game.”
According to Glass some keys to the game will be stopping their big defensive line.
“Croxford has a huge defensive line, their D line play is excellent. So, we're going to need to find a way to neutralize them. They also have a brand-new offence, that looks really slick, we're going to have to find a way to shut that down. We just need to play our game and, and execute.”
Glass finished off by saying he hopes to see a huge crowd as school will be back and rolling.
