"Zane Trace is a very athletic,
experienced, and well-coached football
team. They have a nice group of
lineman on both sides of the ball that
create a lot of opportunities for those
athletes to make plays...We're
expecting a great game."

Scott Keller
Westfall
Week 6 will leave the Scioto Valley Conference with just one unbeaten team as the two remaining 2-0
football teams do battle in Williamsport Friday night. After a rough 0-2 start for Westfall, the Mustangs
have regrouped winning their last three and seem to be a different team.

"Definitely," said WF head coach Scott Keller when asked if he felt his team was starting to play with
more confidence. "Prior to this season we hadn't lost a game since these guys were freshmen. With
everything that we lost from last year, we were ripe for the picking early on. We didn't have a group of
leaders that we could rely on, we didn't have anyone offensively that was stepping up to make plays,
and we were thinking too much defensively instead of reacting. Since those two losses, we've basically
been playing like our back is against the wall. They've become more focused, and they're playing with a
sense of urgency.  Add that to the fact that they are becoming more comfortable with themselves and
each other every week and you have a team that is playing confident football right now."

As you can see from the stats above, both teams have the ability to do some explosive things on
offense. Both also have solid defenses that contain a lot of great athletes. With this in mind, special
teams could play a big role. Both teams have solid kicking games and great return people; however,
Wesftfall really struggled in the early season with special teams but are showing signs of improvement.

"I was disappointed in our special teams earlier just like I was with our offense and our defense," said
Keller.  "We were being too tentative and and passive with everything that we were doing.  It came
from a lack of experience mainly.  We have improved greatly in all three areas, and while we had a
great game special teams wise last week, we still have a few areas there that need to be ironed out."

Check back late Friday night for a full recap of this game as well as the other games around the
conference which include the following:
Paint Valley's Wes Parker
enters Week 6 with a TD in
each of his last four games
including an INT return, a
kick-off return, a rushing
TD, and one TD reception.
Piketon at Paint Valley
Piketon QB Kenny Helton leads the
SVC's #1 offense as his Redstreaks enter
Week 6 averaging a league best 36.2 ppg.
Helton is completing over 60-percent of his
passes while averaging nearly 170 ypg.
through the air.
Paint Valley enters Friday with a 4-1
overall record, and the Bearcats will
welcome the Piketon Redstreaks to
Bainbridge. It is probably fair to call
this an elimination game in terms of
continuing to contend for this year's
SVC title.
