Looking ahead...EC @ Woodville

57 posts in this topic

Going to be a battle. After getting my first look at EC this season, I’m not as confident. Still think they win the ballgame, but it’s going to be a battle. Really excited to see how this one goes. Predictions?

Two high powered teams battling it out. I give the Woodville Eagles the edge in a high scoring affair. Both teams will put on an offensive show. It could very well be determined by whose defense will step up first.

This is game is in Woodville, following an open week, and the start of district play. Woodville has outscored LC-M, Madisonville, and Hardin-Jefferson, 115-21. East Chambers has outscored Kountze, Hardin-Jefferson, and Hamshire-Fannet to the tune of 132-37. It should be a heck of a game, but coming into Eagle Stadium and playing a healthy, well-rested Woodville is extremely tough. EC has a better chance than anybody in the district, but I think Zack Martin is the best player that will be on the field by a large margin that night. His impact on offense will help Woodville pull away in the 4th.

 

Woodville by 10+.

I think Woodville wins this one by 2 scores. They are pretty solid and have a very good running game. Though, I do not think Woodville can get past a top 3A team with just their good running game. With their athletes, i think they should spread defenses out a little more at times. Solid, fundamental, athletic 3A teams will knock them out again.

The EC defense is average at best, HF was able to move the ball on them; if not for untimely holding penalties, overthrown passes and T/O's their game would have been much better. The EC offense however is as good as advertised; they have speed and the QB can make just about any throw on the field with good accuracy. Woodville will need to get a pass rush on him in order to keep it close. I will go with Woodville in this one 35-28

EC will be just as rested and healthy. They also have a bye this week. Both teams get two weeks to prep for each other. Give me  EC in a close one. Fontenot gets the defense straightened out in two weeks of preparation.

EC will have to take away what Woodville does best and that is they put 11 players tight and pound the ball. They run a lot of misdirection. I'm not saying EC can do it, but EC will have to make Woodville find another way to beat them. Which is not a small task. Woodville QB look ok to me, but I would take my chances on the passing game over the running game. Woodville will execute their offense very well. Their guards pull well, they block well, and their backs find the hole and hit it hard. Again, saying it and doing it are two different things. This game will be like a playoff game early, early in the season. I would like to have seen this game played late district play to set up playoff atmosphere.

EC struggles a little on defense, but the defensive game plan may be as important as the players against Woodville. If EC can get everybody in the right place at the right time then they have a chance to keep this one close. If they are not spot on when it come to being gap sound then Woodville will score at will. EC does not have the dudes to stop Woodville, they have to play perfect defense. 

Now on the other side of the ball, EC has an experienced and potent offense. Woodville will have to deal with all the motion and backfield action to stop the Bucs. EC also throws the ball early and often and Woodville may struggle against the pass. I think the key to EC keeping this one close is the play of the EC QB. If he makes good decisions and runs the ball some to keep the defense honest then it will be a game.

I think EC will have to use all their playbook on offense and defense. I think EC has a great game plan on both sides of the ball for this game. Just have to execute it to the "T", without turnovers and EC will be fine. Playing Woodville in Woodville will be a challenge !!!! Heck, I like a good challenge.

A close friend of mine who knows both of these programs very well says that Woodville will win this game by 18-22 points.

 

As for myself, I believe EC will keep it close and tight until a late score by Woodville in the 4th quarter to pull away. Woodville by 6 points or less.

Sorry, but EC's defense is almost inpenetrable. This is not last year. Woodville will be lucky to even reach double digits. I don't usually predict scores, but if I had to, EC 31, Woodville 9. Woodville scores a late TD on EC's reserves.

Slow your roll. I hype EC more than I should, but unpenetrable?? That’s quite of a stretch. Woodville will scores their fair share of a points in this game. EC has to to hit the deep ball for big plays, and score TD’s in the red zone.

E.  Chambers usual weak schedule catches up with them. There wins were over Kountze (0-3), H. Jeff.(1-2)who's only win was over a 0-3 team, and H. Fannett (1-2) who's only win was over a 0-3 team. Woodville's schedule has not been much stronger. Woodville wins this one by two scores.

      j Aj has played extremely well this year.  From the 3 games I've seen Dayton play the edge defense is good.  The middle is soft and so is the secondary.  Orebo and pike have looked good on defense.  My buddy called me after the Nederland game and he was completely disgusted.  He seems to think there is more to Dayton losing than "not having the talent!" He knows the kids personally some of these kids tell stories that if they got out it would be a mess. Going to be an interesting off season.  I hope Dayton can turn it around but I don't see it happening.  I pray all kids go injury free for the remainder of the year.

      I don't care what matters to you and you will get my opinion.

      What comments do I have to be concerned about to be "getting called out on" . I'm pretty sure I haven't posted lies or talked negatively about anyone or team.

      Here are my thoughts. Crosby is a great school district who is obviously going through some tough times right now. I think as a district mate of Crosby that I would like to offer up my thoughts and prayers for all of the affected, and all of the kids in the district. I would even consider buying something from the fundraising to help in whatever small way that I could. Remember THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO THE KIDDOS of the district. They deserve better than whatever has hit the school. I hope and pray that the situation is fixed in the near future and also hope for the best for the departing coaches and teachers.  Your fellow district mate and a PN-G Indian.
