(Avoca) In a mouthful of a game on Friday night OA-BCIG will play at AHSTW in a game that be broadcast on KSOM2. More simply put, the Falcons will be taking on the Vikings in Week 4.
2-1 AHSTW made a lot of noise last week with their big win over Clarinda. Prior to that meeting, the Cardinals had steamrolled a pair of Class 3A teams, but in came Class 1A AHSTW who beat the Cards on a 75 yard TD pass from Nathan Herbst to Terry Shannon in the 2nd half.
This week's Viking opponent, OA-BCIG comes into the game at 3-0. They are one of only eleven Class 1A teams that remains undefeated. Coach Davis Pattee says they are very agressive and fast. The Falcons use a 3-5 defensive approach trying to utilize all of the speed they have at linebacker. They are coached by a former AHST Viking Larry Allen. Allen finished his high school career in the early 80's played collegiately at Simpson, and has been at guiding his current program ever since.
These teams come in with very similar philosophies. Both run the football first, and are led by a variety of rushers. The leader of a balanced attack for OA-BCIG is state champion wrestler Cash Wilcke who went over 200 yards last week. Dustin Engel leads AHSTW with 266 yards this season on the ground.
