The Brusly Panthers look to close out the season on a three-game winning streak when they host the Madison Prep Chargers Friday night.
Madison Prep (3-6, 2-3) enters the game on a four-game losing streak following a 56-7 loss to U-High.
Some of the other Charger losses came against Zachary, Scotlandville and Carver Collegiate Academy.
“We have to make sure we play a good football game against a good football team,” said Brusly head coach Hoff Schooler. “People will look at their record, but they’ve played some good teams. We won’t be fooled by their record, we’ll be focused up and ready for Friday night.”
Schooler said speed and athleticism are what stands out about the Charger squad on both sides of the ball.
In last year’s contest, Madison Prep left Brusly with a 42-12 win. The Brusly coach said his team must play sound football to get a win to end the regular season.
“We have to play a clean ballgame and eliminate turnovers,” Schooler said.
The Brusly passing game has continued to emerge the last several weeks and has opened up more success for the running game, according to the coach.
“It allows us to have a little balance and to get people out of the box to run the ball the way we want to,” Schooler said. “The offensive line has been doing well and Nick (Penell) has thrown the ball well. I’m proud of those guys in the passing game.”
