Lexington at Shiner
Shiner pulled of a very gratifying win against Goliad 34-29 last week and faces an equal challenge with a home game against Lexington.
“We need to focus on Lexington now that our game with Goliad is completed,” Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. “Lexington is just as good as Goliad.”
The Eagles will run the spread but will run the ball a lot more.
Leading the way is quarterback Nic Dillon and running back Lachea Cooper.
Dillon has completed 20-of-68 passes for 237 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. On the ground is where he does the most damage, with 100 carries for 474 yards and six touchdowns. Cooper has 31 carries for 199 yards and two touchdowns.
Lexington’s offensive line has all seniors.
“Their line is big and physical, and they run the counter trey well with either Dillon or Cooper,” Cerny said. “We have to not give up big plays.”
The Eagle defense features pressure with blitzes and stunts from all directions.
“We have to capitalize on our chances on offense,” Cerny said.
Shiner threw 16 passes against Goliad and gathered 161 yards.
“We threw the ball a lot for a Comanche team but we have to be balanced and throw the ball some against Lexington,” he said.
