(Festus) These types of games are what we’ve come to expect between the Festus Tigers and the Farmington Knights
Both teams will write the next chapter in the series tonight on KREI. The Knights are 5-2 and are coming off a throttling loss from the Jackson Indians, however, Coach Kruppe says that the game last week doesn’t have a large impact on the rest of the season.
The blemish in the Knights record doesn’t show how dynamic this team is, as their 4 headed monsters of Jeremiah Cunningham, Brady Cook, Drew Felker, and Kaeson McClain have combined to rush for over 2,000 yards this season and over 300 a game. Head Coach for the Tigers AJ Ofodile says containing the big run play is the key for their defense tonight (Friday).
Turning attention to the Festus Tigers, they are currently 4-3 on the season and pulled away from Pacific last week 36-32. This offense for the Tigers averages 431 yards per game and gets into the endzone at least five times each outing. It all starts with the arm of senior QB Cole Rickermann, who has thrown for over 1700 yards and 18 touchdowns. Coach Kruppe says his defense will be challenged tonight.
Ofodile says that having a lot of weapons on the outside allows his offense to spread the football around and creates favorable matchups for Rickermann.
The Farmington Knights take on the Festus Tigers tonight on AM 800 KREI. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 with the Fliegs Equipment Pregame Show at 6.
