Bowling Green is at home tonight, hosting Silliman Institute in week three of the MAIS season.
The Buccaneers enter this week with a 0-2 record after a forfeit loss to Ben’s Ford.
One of the keys this week for the Buccaneers will be avoiding the big play.
“(Silliman is) 0-2, but they’ve played two close games against two good teams. Their biggest weapon is they can throw deep and that’s a weakness of ours,” Bowling Green coach David Currier said. “We have to avoid giving up the big play. We have move the ball, get some points and keep it away from them.”
Currier said big plays have hurt Bowling Green on defense this season, and he is looking for improvement in his team’s consistency.
Offensively against Ben’s Ford, Cameron Bell completed six of his 11 pass attempts for 240 yards and two touchdowns.
Currier said that Harrison Creel, who plays on both lines, is stepping up and making big plays.
The Bucs ran for more than 100 yards last week.
Silliman won last season’s match up, 19-18.
Silliman is 0-2 this season with a pair of one-possession losses. They were defeated by Amite School Center, 38-30, last week. The week before, they lost to Columbia Academy, 35-28. Last year, the Wildcats reached the playoffs, but lost to Centreville Academy, 21-13, in the opening round.
