No predictions...just thoughts and keys to victory?
I believe Montwood will shock everyone in El Paso. Everyone seems to think of them as young and weak and I truly hope everyone sleeps on them and if they do, they'll be in for a rude awakening!! And I will predict a victory of 28-21 Montwood!!! Go Rams!!!
I don't think anyone is sleeping on montwood. Don't have any idea where you get that idea. I don't think they will beat frenship though. It's too soon for the wood to step up and beat this established program. And i mean too soon in the season. Playoff time maybe but now frenship will be a solid veteran group.
Supporter, I respectfully disagree. If Eastwood, a team that Montwood beat last season, can score 30+ points against Frenship, also last season. I know Montwood can do just as well or even better. What Eastwood didn't have last season that Montwood has this season is a good defense. Which is why Montwood was able to beat teams like Eastwood and Americas last season. That, coupled with a solid offense will make the difference against Frenship. So we shall see. Go Rams!!!
Frenship: O/D 7/5
Montwood: O/D 5/6
frenship isn't the friend of el paso. they will take this by 7.
Win or Lose...I'm here to support any team from EP against all outsiders. GO RAMS!!!
all for el paso schools just keep it real. rams always plays hard
Sad but true. Mark my words. Frenship 42-14
I don't care about the score I am rooting for all EP schools against outsiders! I am a Franklin fan! Lets go M Wood
Montwood 7 Frenship 17
Penalties and turnovers hurt MW in the first half.
Frenship 17 Montwood 7 at the half. Defense looks solid with a questionable secondary. Offense moving the ball well but to many mental mistakes being made (ball security). Hopefully we make the right adjustments next half!!!
Montwood 14 Frenship 17. 3rd qtr
17-14 Frenship. 3rd. 4:16. Long bomb to #88
frenship plays hard. rams must have played well to keep it to a 10 pt difference.
Final Score Frenship 24 Montwood 14
Listened on radio. Rams defense was on field all night. 75 offensive plays for Frenship. 45 offensive plays for Rams. Frenship pounded all night. Montwood probably lucky to have only lost by 10. 4 offensive TO'S by Ram offense didnt help. Rams will learn and improve from this game.
It was a combination of penalties, turnovers (2 interceptions, 2 fumbles) and missed opportunities that cost MW the game. That, coupled with the defense' inability to stop Frenship's (SOPH) RB Garrison Johnson who rushed for over 200 yards all contributed to the loss. Moving forward, MW has the rest of this week to reflect on what they did good/bad and get ready for Midland!!!
Hard fought game the weakness of the Rams is the receivers jogging routes and confused , and no blocking , if they can correct that they should be ram solid and contend the receivers are their Achilles Heel , there is too much talent there to have that
Sorry, I didn't see the confusion between the WRs. The QB completed 19 of 30 passes (a 63% completion rate)to five different WRs. Which is pretty good considering most of his passes were thrown while under pressure. I agree the offensive line did not provide him with much protection. But everyone knew going into the season that MW would have a inexperienced offensive line. Hopefully, they will get better as the season progresses.
The LBs, both #33 and #35 were awesome on defense. On the other hand, the overall defensive coaching in the game was a whole other story. I felt they were doing too much blitzing, resulting in several missed tackles on #23, and the FS #7 was no where to be found!
The ram receiving core should be the strength instead the are a weakness , they just don't seem coached. They made some catches and they should of made more to win the game in my point of view they under performed.
Montwood coaches up in the press box need to be held accountable as well. They have eyes on everything down on the field and they are not getting the job done.
Sounds like a bunch of excuses from armchair parents. The game is over...MW lost so let it rest. I'm sure the players and coaches are moving forward and getting ready for Midland. Keeping in mind there is still a lot of football to be played.
This is true, montwood d is not at their fullest potential.. I believe they can achieve more if they maybe put different or switch players around
