Houlka hosts Smithville for season finale
The Wildcats were a little off-balance last week but coach Adam Gentry said the overall outcome was positive despite some hurdles.
The weather forced the Wildcats’ game against Coldwater to change date and location and injuries called for reorganization on the field but Gentry said the team responded well to both.
“I am pleased with the overall team effort,” Gentry said. “Each week our attitude keeps getting better and better and we approach the game with a better football mentality.”
The Wildcats made the road trip to Coldwater and came up short against the Cougars, 15-46, but Gentry saw positive sparks on the field.
“We were short some guys this week and started some guys in new spots but I think they stepped up and responded well to the challenge,” Gentry said. “Sawyer Byars and Tyreque Reed shared quarterback duties this week and, I felt, did a great job stepping in. Larry Jones had another interception and continues to be very consistent. James Buggs turned in another good performance and ran the ball well. We threw Matthew Huffman in there at safety and he busted his tail out there for us covering guys with a lot of speed. Anthony Boyd has worked so hard and become one of our more consistent players and Q Beaty is a leader out there on our defense.”
The Wildcats (3-7, 2-5) will head to Smithville for their final game of the season Friday, taking on the Seminoles (7-3, 5-2).
“We very much respect what they have going on with their team and the season they are producing,” Gentry said. “We know we are in for a battle and will face a very good team Friday night.”
Gentry said he expects 100 percent from the team and has no doubt he will get it again this week.
“It’s another oportunity for us to get better at the game of football,” Gentry said. “We can play with the most passion out there.”
