The Westran Hornets and Scotland County Tigers both look to improve to 3-3 in a crucial Lewis and Clark Conference and district matchup. Scotland County sits at third in the district, with Westran three points behind in fourth.
Westran enters week six on a three-game losing streak after falling to Fayette 44-23 last week. Hornets head coach Aaron O’Laughlin says his defense needs to improve its tackling.
Offensively, running back Quinn Massey has been the focal point of the Hornets offense. The senior has rushed for 539 yards and eight touchdowns this season. O’Laughlin praised Massey and the rest of the seniors on the roster for their selflessness and hard work.
Scotland County has won two of its last three games after losing its first two games of the season by a combined four points. Head coach Troy Carper was impressed with his squad’s 52-14 win over Salisbury last week.
Senior quarterback Hayden Long leads the Tigers in passing and rushing yards. Long has 257 yards through the air, 433 on the ground, and 14 total touchdowns. Carper says he’s been impressed with his quarterback’s versatility and leadership.
