This Friday night will be the Homecoming game for the Brownfield Cubs. The Cubs remain at 0-3 after a lightning delay at Big Spring, which turned into a cancelled game two hours later. The Cubs did find the endzone first against Big Spring, but the Steers were able to cover some ground and score before the delay, after less than five minutes had run off the clock.
Head Coach Aarrhon Flores has been proud of the fight his guys have shown in each game. “We are fired up and ready each week. We are playing some really good teams, but we know if we want to beat the best, we have to play the best.”
The Cubs will face Lakeview this week as the final preseason contest before District play begins. Lakeview comes in with an 0-4 record.
The Chiefs and the Cubs face each other every year and the Cubs have won two out of the last three meetings. According to Flores, “It is always a great back and forth game. This year, both teams are needing that first win. Look for a good contest on Friday.”
The Chiefs have a receiver and a runningback the Cubs will be looking to hold back. #3 J. Chapa and #5 R.Ramirez will be carrying the ball for the Chiefs most of the game. The Chiefs are a predominantly run offense, but Flores says they are actually about 60% run and 40% pass, so the Cubs defense will have to be prepared for both.
On the Cubs’s side, Flores says play the game as usual.”We are not putting in anything fancy or crazy. We know our offense and we do a good job with our assignments on offense. We are just going to come in and play hard football.”
Flores said he expects his guys to play a good clean game and try to keep penalties down to a minimum.
The game has a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at Cub Stadium. The Cubs will be off the next Friday, before starting District on October 8 at Shallowater.
