Ada Cougars second round preview

Posted: Updated:

ADA, OK -- For eleven weeks now we've been talking about how the Ada Cougars have been rolling. Every Friday another notch in the win column.

They'd leave no doubt in their first round match up trouncing Woodward 54-22, but two nights from now they'll face one of their toughest foes yet in Cleveland.

The 9-2 Tigers are bringing in a powerful offense hot off a first round win against Broken Bow.

They're a force to be reckoned with, winning all five road contests so far this season thanks in large part to a gun slinging quarterback.

Containing him will be one of the keys to victory for the Cougars, plus it definitely helps to have home field advantage.

"I think it's really important, the crowd gets into it and I know it helps me out when I have the crowd there going crazy. And I just love playing at home in front of our fans and it's a lot of fun," said senior running back Mason Girdley.

"They have an outstanding quarterback, probably one of the best in the state and he's really fast and he's kind of a Brett Favre type when some of his best plays are off broken plays. So we definitely need to be good tacklers on him, and offensively, as always, the key for us is just not turning the ball over," added head coach Matt Weber.

Kick-off from Norris field at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
