Having battled injuries for much of the season, the Panthers are starting to get healthy. Running back Liam Hill returned to action last week and another one of their prime ball carriers, Luke Hunter, is expected to return this week. Newsted says they will be tasked with trying to break down a re-tooled Macon defense.
On the other side, the Macon Tigers are licking their wounds after dropping their fourth game out of their last five. Last week’s 22-8 loss to Palmyra was particularly costly as quarterback Blake Claas suffered a fractured fibula. Macon head coach Pete Claas says the offense will be a little different this week.
Claas has yet to determine who his starting quarterback will be this week. With the offense hampered, the defense wll have to come up large for the Tigers this week. Claas says the key will be figuring out how to solve Centralia’s Wing T offense.
Colin Schowe and Austin Ward will have the call for tonight’s game live on 99.9 The Captain and centralmoinfo.com. Pregame coverage will get underway at 6:40 pm.
