This Friday at 7:30 PM, Fort Stockton (3-6) is pitted against Monahans (7-2). Monahans will be looking to take advantage of a struggling Fort Stockton defense that has allowed an average of 29 points per game.
Fort Stockton had a lot of difficulties with Seminole last game and took a hard 41 - 7 hit. Junior Cole Daggett didn't go down without a fight, though. He put up some defensive resistance with 16 tackles.
Meanwhile, Monahans didn't have too much trouble with Sweetwater in its last game, where Monahans won 45 - 27. Senior Tylan Mccalister deserves a lot of the credit as he earned two touchdowns and 211 yards rushing the ball. The longest touchdown for Mccalister was a punishing, defense-defying 51-yard dash in the fourth quarter. This marked the 3rd consecutive game in which Mccalister had 100+ rushing yards. Junior Kye Noyola was in the mix too, providing Monahans with two touchdowns.
The last time they met, Monahans was the clear winner with a 49 - 16 finish. Fort Stockton was already in too deep by the half, where the score was 42 - 8. Can Monahans repeat its success? We'll find out this Friday.
