PSN Game of the Week: Stephenson vs Miller Grove As Jaguars Look To Remain Unbeatean
1. On Friday, the Stephenson and the Miller Grove Wolverines will face off in a key region match up in which the Jaguars will look to improve to 2-0 in the region standings and 6-0 overall. Meanwhile, the Wolverines look to bounce back from their first region loss to Arabia Mountain last week and move to 2-1 in the region standings, 5-2 overall. For Miller Grove head coach, Melvin Brown, in order for his guys to get back on track, they’ll need to “take care of the little things,” as they get set for battle with Stephenson.
“We made a lot of mistake,” Brown said of the Wolverines’ performance last week in their 20-6 loss to Arabia Mountain. He continued, “After we broke down film, if we had just took care of the little things, we would have won that game.” Brown added that he and his staff believes that if their guys take care of business when they face the Jaguars, if they loss to Stephenson, it will not be because they helped the Jaguars beat them. “If Stephenson is going to beat us, make sure we don’t help them to beat us,” Brown said.
Up until last week, the Miller Grove defense had not been very generous to opposing offenses, only allowing no more than 13 points to an opponent and Brown credits their “fast, physical and relentless” efforts to being key for them on the defensive side of the ball. Heading into Friday’s tilt with Stephenson, Brown says. “Make sure we stay fast, make sure we stay physical, stay relentless and get after it, be aggressive as we possibly can,” Brown says will help Miller Grove get back on track this week.
