This game will be a measuring stick for both teams! For the next 4 weeks WOS faces Richmond Foster (5A), Jasper (4A) , Silsbee (4A) & Newton (3A). This Young Mustangs Team gonna have to grow up really fast these next couple weeks. Starting this up in coming week against PNG. All I know is that WOS coming to The Reservation expecting to leave with the Win. These kids don't have to be reminded that this is a big game that's gonna have a hostile crowd. Every game @ WOS is a big game. An they know they gonna have to win all phase of the game to Leave The Reservation with the Win.
WOS has an 18-7 lead against PNG with 4 of those 7 wins coming before 1984. So since 1984 WOS is 15-3 against the Indians. Not making any conclusions just stating facts. The games are always tough at the Reservation. Good luck to both. Should be a good game for both and both should learn from it. Hopefully no injuries. 1977 PNG 36, WOS 13 1978 WOS 28, PNG 20 1979 WOS 28, PNG 24 1980 WOS 36, PNG 24 1981 PNG 30, WOS 7 1982 PNG 19, WOS 14 1983 PNG 17, WOS 14 1984 WOS 23, PNG 14 1985 WOS 14, PNG 2 1988 WOS 51, PNG 0 1989 WOS 25, PNG 20 1990 WOS 35, PNG 14 1991 WOS 35, PNG 16 1992 PNG 14, WOS 13 1993 WOS 42, PNG 10 1996 PNG 35, WOS 7 1997 WOS 35, PNG 0 1998 WOS 17, PNG 12 1999 WOS 21, PNG 14 2000 WOS 7, PNG 0 2001 WOS 28, PNG 0 2002 WOS 3, PNG 0 2012 WOS 34, PNG 13 2013 PNG 37, WOS 34 2014 WOS 33, PNG 27 (OT) PNG points against WOS since 1997 = 93 WOS point against PNG since 2012 = 101
I realize Newton/WOS are coming off historical seasons and they should be proud, but to say their isn't a team 5A and down that can COMPETE at their level is a little ridiculous. Especially when I think of the WOS/LCM game, yes WOS won but it wasn't like a blow out or total thrashing. I agree with that both these programs are very good year in and year out, but I guarantee if you match up them up with PNG, Nederland, Ozen, and Central their will definitely be some COMPETING going on. I hope Newton/WOS both make it back to state because its fun to see local teams go all the way. Good luck and have a great season
