ND (4-1) at Linton (5-0)
The Cougars continued to play well, after a 40-15 win over North Putnam on Friday night, however, they will now face their sternest test of the year in Class A No. 1 Linton-Stockton.
The rivarly with Linton has always been hotly contested, however Linton has won the last four meetings with with the Cougars.
This year the 4-1 Cougars faces a Miner team with a different look. Gone is all-state quarterback Austin Karizia and long-time coach Steve Weber and his spread offense.
However, ND coach Scott Helms said this year’s edition is just as potent, averaging 47 points a game and giving up just 13.
“They are running a Wing-T offense this year and quarterback Dane Rupska does a nice job of running and throwing. He is really like a big back who also throws well,” said Helms.
“Grant Stamm is a wide receiver who likes to go deep and Austin Hale is a very good back. Mitch Eberhart and Zane Hayden are a pair of fast, strong running backs as well.”
Last week the Miners dismantled Springs Valley, 48-6, with a balanced attack which saw Hale get 92 yards, Rupka add 93, Hayden add 52 and Eberhart with 48.
