Both teams prevailed in high scoring games tonight. What does MW need to do to maintain their undefeated record? And what does Franklin need to do to slow down MWs high scoring offense? Good luck.
Thursday night game?
The Cougars will go into this game with something to prove after thier loss to the Rams last season!
Can Franklin pull an upset?
Those Rams put up lots of points. 😑
Food for thought
Montwood 58 Midland 53
Franklin 48 Midland 22
Our second string will be ready if needed.They put in the work and get to play. I as a parent don't care if we win 52-0 or 52-51 a win is a win.
None of that matters anyway. Franklin beat Midland worst than Desoto did this year that means Franklin and Desoto will be a great game. Lol no!
Good luck Montwood whichever squad your coaches deside to play hope to see some great football Thursday night!
Whichever squad? You all are insane man lol. It's Franklin High School (Varsity) vs Montwood High School (Varsity)!!! Lol that's it.
You got it Pops! Lol. Well wishes for coaches parents support groups and all the brave athletes on both teams!
Montwood 75 Franklin 55
Well I hope they play 3rd and 4th quarter on Thursday.
Hey Eastsider I'm the real Eastsider been using this username forever in this message board. Make up a different username. Come on
I think FHS needs to pound #21 and try and keep that MHS offense off of the field as much as possible.
They need to keep Montwood off the field and score on every drive. Thats the key to beat Montwood.
RB Seth Dominguez won't be enough to beat the Rams. And the Cougars need to play all-around defense and not just focus on one player.
I do think we must make other guys beat us other than #1 and #4. Montwood will score regardless but put pressure on other guys to make the big plays.
Game Day bby!!!! Montwood ready to feast on some Cougar meat tonight! Good luck to both teams. Go Rams!!!
Let's GOOOOOOOOOO Rams! Good luck to our coaches and players. Praying for a safe, injury free game for all.
What did you think? Great team effort tonight by the rams.
Next up coronado
The Rams escaped with a hard fought victory tonight against the Franklin Cougars. And without reservation, I take my hat off to the Cougars for making it a very competitive game and for not giving up. They literally fought it out to the very end. Overall, it was a great game between two very good teams.
Congrats to our Rams but in no way are they ready for the playoffs with that defense. Good thing the playoffs are not tomorrow and there are more regular season games left to work on the defense.
I wasn't going to mention the horrible calls that were made by the Refs last night. Hope they can fix it and start calling cleaner games for all teams. Also I have to take my hat off for the performance from Jason our back up QB great job and great win. Congratulations to the Montwood Rams they're 6-0. And great game by the Franklin Cougars who look very good on both sides of the ball.
I was at the game and Montwood did not take command of anything. Franklin had the momentum but their receiver I believe it was number #16 or #18 dropped a pass for easy TD. That was the turning point. Montwood did escape. Montwoods defense has alot and I mean alot of holes that they better fix or else they will be eliminated in the first round of the Texas State playoffs no matter who they play.
Dads of Montwood defensive players don't get so easily offended. Just look at all the points teams are putting up on Montwood.
There will come game where Montwoods offense will not score over 20 points and Montwoods defense will have to pull out the W because in the Texas state playoffs defense wins championships.
If any person is offended by this in any way as if I am targeting your team then you dont know squat about football and all you know is drama and how to argue nonsense. Football championships ate not won by hope, being optimistic, and other nonsense. Championships in the playoffs are won by defenses and Montwood has lots amd lots of holes or rather I say weak spots.
Has Montwood shutout any teams this season or atleast held a couple of teams under 2 touchdowns???
It was back and forth. Franklins offense had it going on, great passing game. Unfortunate for the QB that receivers dropped key passes that definitely would have had 2 TDs on the board and that one by TD #3 that got called back. Those 21 points could have left Rams w a loss. #8 for Franklin giving up another 4 points in 2 point conversions was painful and needed for Franklin. Montwood offense gave Franklin a hard time throughout. FHS, what happenedbto basic D fundamentals? True that refs calls were painful for Franklin and a few for Montwood...overall, it was a good fight and I see both teams bringing it for the remainder of season.
One more thing I wanted to say is how great our second string QB played yesterday first half.
That is true Jason did play great!!
No excuses being made. #9 got hit hard and dropped key pass. Some receivers just dropped end zone passes period which is all on them. And yes, 2 pnt conversions stopped by Montwood D. Had Franklin excecuted properly, those points should have been on the board. That falls on Franklin and the win could have been in their favor.
I find it odd and funny at the same time that many of us follow EP Gridiron on their twitter and we picked one of these 4 choices.
Montwood to win by more than 15
Montwood to win by less than 15
Franklin to win by more than 5
Franklin to win by less than 5
Me personally I picked Montwood to win by more than 15 and I freaking missed it and they freaking had it it was 43-26 by 17 until freaking Franklin scored late in the game.
Anyways I find it odd and funny because the game was at first Franklin 7-0 then later Montwood pulled away and it was 22-7 which if you do the math it was Montwood by 15. Anyways the game was always near that 15 that EP Gridiron posted on twitter days before the game even was played.
How EP Gridiron does it who freaking knows but loads of props to EP Gridiron
I'll stay out of the predictions, all I know is Montwood is 6-0 and we'll see who will beat who.
My son and I just saw America’s and pebbles hill both teams are very physical upfront and Montwood defensive line is going to struggle vs these teams, they have to improve as a defensive unit fast I hope their DC can improve that defense in a hurry specially defensive line
I also was at that game and what I saw that game different. PH has speed on the defense but we'll have to see if the can hang with the Montwoods offense. PH offense love to draws and outside screens. We'll have to see if Montwood can stop PH.And I'm not sure if Ram fan is acualy a Ram fan I see alot of criticism on Montwood from his post.
Until Franklin learns to play defense they will never compete at a respectable level. Who's the defensive coordinator?
Man that #4 from Montwood is a beast but did you see that LB # 16 from Franklin on him most of the game , that kid did a pretty good job. He never got score on plus he stripe the ball away from the Montwood QB when they were going to score and had an interception. It was a better good game but both need to improve on defense.
MWs backup QB Jason Fernandez started the game because his brother missed practice during the week and as a result didn't play until the 2nd half of the game. Jason did okay but he doesn't know all of the plays, therefore play calling was very limited and it showed. Otherwise, the margin of victory would have been even larger for the Rams!
Jason knows every play the offense runs. He's been at every practice and runs the second offense. Every district game will be contested from film study to playing each other every year.
