Friday night the Pelicans will be playing away against West Feliciana.
The 2012 Saints held a 7-4 record under Coach Rob Odom.
This is Odom’s eighth year as head coach at West Feliciana. So far, the Saints are 2-1 this season.
“They’re a very well coached team and they have some really great athletes,” said Port Allen’s head coach Guy Blanchard. “They have the same style offense we have. It’s a good and bad thing because we know what they can do. We will have to come out and play a really sound game. We’re going to have to find a way to contain them and limit them because they’re going to present us some challenges.”
Blanchard hopes his team can make a few changes from last week’s performance.
“Hopefully we can control the ball more,” said Blanchard. “Last week, we came out punching and did a great job. Hopefully we can sustain that, that’s the big thing. We can’t turn the ball over and give it up; we just can’t give up points like that. We have to take care of the things that we can take care of.”
Blanchard said Sunday afternoon that he doesn’t know that his team is quite ready for the Saints yet, but added they will be ready Friday.
