Every time Boylan steps on the field history is going to be made one way or another. Either their NIC-10 record winning streaks extends on Friday at Hononegah or it’ll come to an end. The game this Saturday might mark the biggest threat to that seven plus year streak.
"Their skill kids on offense are incredible. They’ve got typical Hononegah size. I don’t see any flaws in what they did in
week one," said Boylan head coach John Cacciatore. The Indians dominated their first contest of the year, 50-0 against East. But the Titans had a much harder time, barely edging Auburn 16-7.
"We just have to have better execution by 11 guys," Cacciatore said, adding that the team expects to play better in their second game.
But Honoegah is not a sure thing to pull off the upset. Their head coach Tim Sughroe had some ideas for why the Indians haven't beaten the Titans in close to a decade.
"Consistently not getting big plays. We’ve had to work for everything that we’ve gotten. Defensively they’re so fundamentally sound that it’s tough to break a big play on them."
One thing is for certain: When the dust settles on the Titans and the Indians after week two, the title picture in the NIC-10 will be a lot more clear.
