Gameday InformationSaint Xavier Tigers (7-3) vs. Muhlenberg County Mustangs (7-3 )
Friday, November 4th
Br. Thomas More Stadium
The Tiger Football team will play at home for the first round of the Class 6A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Football Playoffs. Their opponent will be the Muhlenberg County Mustangs.
Muhlenberg County has some good athletes, especially in the backfield with dual-threat quarterback Hunter Combs leading the way. Behind him, he has three different runningbacks lining up throughout the games they have played this season, all of whom are 200+ pounds, so they could be bruisers against the Tiger Defense. However, our defensive line will just be too physical and quick for the Mustangs to block consistently all night. Advantage Tigers.
Much like the Tiger Defense, the battle for the Offense will be winning in the trenches. The offensive line looks very favorable heading into this game and I just don’t see the Mustangs being able to put up a fight for that long. The rushing attack will overwhelm them, and ultimately that should be the plan of attack for the night. Expect the offense to tire the Mustangs out quickly tonight because they have many players playing both ways.
