This week, the West Potomac Wolverines will play against the Woodson Cavaliers at West Potomac High School at 7:30 p.m. at 6500 Quander Road for the Wolverines’ homecoming.
The Wolverines were unable to score at all against Westfield last week, with a final score of 0-49. Westfield was successful in playing fundamental football and shutting down one of West Potomac’s key players: Demornay Pierson-El.
Wolverines Head Coach Jeremiah Davis said the team plans to eliminate mistakes to win this week's homecoming game.
"Our keys to victory this week will be eliminating those mistakes and protecting the football," said Davis. "Woodson has a strong rushing attack and an experienced quarterback who manages the game well. They are riding a two game winning streak looking to turn around their season."
The Cavaliers Head Coach Joe Dishun said the team plans to try to do the same thing and stop Pierson-El and West Potomac’s quarterback, Caleb Williams. Throughout the week, the Cavaliers have been working on execution, pursuit and reducing turnovers in preparation for the matchup against the Wolverines.
“Our key is that we must play as a unit on offense, defense and special teams,” said Dishun in a recent email.
Dishun was unwilling to speak about the team’s strengths and how they would use them on the field Friday night, stating that he doesn’t “like to tip my hand very much.”
Last week, the Cavaliers beat Annandale, 14-7, making it their second win of the season. Their season record is now 2-5, and after losing to Westfield last week, the Wolverines have a 5-2 record going into their homecoming game.
