"Offensively, they run the exact same thing that we run, so it'll be like playing us. We're very familiar with what they're trying to do offensively," Alta coach Kevin Hammer said. "We haven't figured out yet if it's easier to prepare for defensively or not. When you have two teams with the same offense, the biggest thing is which team executes the best offensively is going to have a real good chance of winning the football game."
Alta and Galva-Holstein are the top two teams in the district in rushing.
"The best defense is a good offense," Hammer said. "We have to try to keep our offense on the field as much as possible and have long, sustaining drives."
Galva-Holstein is 4-1 overall, and Hammer is impressed with the personnel of Friday night's opponent.
"They do a lot of things well," he said. "Obviously, they're playing with a lot of confidence right now. They're very quick on defense. They've got good team speed. They get out and pursue real well and they're real aggressive."
Alta, which comes in with a 2-3 record, must improve on a couple of things from last week's loss to Pomeroy-Palmer in order to get back on the winning track.
"Last week, we didn't execute very well," Hammer said. "We really have to do a lot better job of our offensive execution. We had breakdowns in our blocking schemes and fumbles that hurt us that we have to eliminate."
