Offensive fireworks expected in Sioux Central game

Thursday, October 5, 2000

Harris-Lake Park has averaged 39 points a game in their last two outings.

"They put a lot of points on the board, so they concern us offensively," Sioux Central coach Jeff Tiefenthaler said. "They run some trips formations and they have some pretty good skill kids. Our secondary will get tested this week."

The best defense against Harris-Lake Park may be Sioux Central's offense.

"The best way to combat a team that scores a lot of points is to control the ball yourself and keep their offense off the field," Tiefenthaler said. "We'll still look for balance on offense, but I'll still try to establish the run this week."

Sioux Central, which enters with a 6-0 mark, could have a field day when it has the ball.

"Their defense I think is suspect," Tiefenthaler said. "Their secondary is the strength of their defense, so that's why we'll try to run the ball more. I don't think their run defense is as strong. That's probably why we'll try to dominate the line of scrimmage."
