Game preview: Cache at John Marshall
Cache (1-0) at John Marshall (1-0)
When: 7:30 tonight
Where: Taft Stadium
Why Cache could win: They might have pulled off the biggest surprises last week with their 15-14 win over Tuttle that wasn’t settled until Tuttle missed a field goal in the closing moments. QB Tanner Thompson is a playmaker who ignited the rally from 14-0 down against Tuttle with a 73-yard TD run.
Why John Marshall could win: The Bear defense was strong last week, and should give them a chance to be in just about every game. And there’s some talent on offense. I’d look for Kody Shields to break free for some good yardage tonight. Denzelle Johnson is a big guy who will impact both sides of the ball as well.
Key matchup: Cache defense vs. John Marshall QB Davion Smith. Smith is a freshman, and will play like one at times. He can’t make too many mistakes against a good team, or it will be costly. But he has a lot of ability, and if he plays clean, the Bears can put up enough points to win.
The pick: Cache 10, John Marshall 7. It’s hard to know just how good Cache is after pulling the shocker last week, but it certainly makes you take notice. That said, I’m always concerned about the team making the long bus ride to or from Lawton. It can be an equalizer.
