FMQ: Douglass powers past Harrah
Here’s your Friday Morning Quarterback breakdown of Douglass’ 47-0 win at Harrah.
Impressive performance by the Trojans on all levels. Aside from some occasional trouble getting the snap — which led to six fumbles (two lost) — Douglass did pretty much everything well.
On the other side, nothing seemed to go right for the Panthers, who suffered their first loss.
Harrah breakdown: It was just one of those nights. Positive yards on first down, positive yards on second down, high shotgun snap on third down that kills a drive. Stuff like that kept happening all night long. The Panthers are better than the score represents.
And in one of the more emotional plays of the night, senior running back Trey Tuggle sustained an ankle injury. He just returned after breaking his hand, and was still playing with the left hand in a cast. He played just two series before hurting the ankle. He was in a lot of pain, but the frustration of another injury seemed to bother him more. He came out of the pile pounding the ground with his fist and slammed his helmet into the ground as he was helped off the field.
The key for Harrah is bouncing back with as much confidence as they had during the first seven games of the season. Nothing is over for them. They still have Glenpool on the schedule in Week 10, which means — with a little help — they can forge a tie for the top spot in the district.
Defensively, the Panthers struggled to contain the Trojans’ speed, but they’re tough and physical. That and their ability to run the ball will make them a dangerous team in the postseason.
