Hoxie are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 30.8 points per game before their next game. They will challenge Rison on the road at 7:00 PM on Friday. Hoxie strut in flaunting some offensive muscle with an average of 35.7 points per game.
Hoxie have relied on a stalwart defense averaging points allowed per game, but that average took a hit last Thursday. They lost to Walnut Ridge by a decisive 27-44 margin. On a positive note, senior Chandler Spradlin put forth a good effort for the losing side as he picked up 99 yards on the ground on 16 carries and threw 2 TDs. If you haven't heard Spradlin's name lately, then you haven't been paying much attention: he has loomed large in Hoxie's past eight games.
Meanwhile, if there were any doubts about the heavy odds in favor of Rison coming into their match against Dollarway last week, the squad laid those doubts to rest. Rison took the contest with ease, bagging a 59-6 win over Dollarway.
Rison's victory lifted them to 10-0 while Hoxie's loss dropped them down to 5-5. We'll see if Rison's success rolls on or if Hoxie are able to steal their positive momentum.
