Monroe won the game 24-14 to win their first game of the year, their first under new Head Coach Kevin Reach, and their first win over Loganvile since 2013 to put the all time series rivalry record at 9-3 still in favor of Loganville. The Red Devils must now regroup and travel to Cumming, GA to play the North Forsyth Raiders (1-1 overall), who will be looking for their second consecutive home win having beat Johns Creek last week 28-6. The Red Devils must work the "kinks" , as we called them last week during the broadcast, if they want to improve and get a win. They looked to be out of place and shell shocked, fumbling the ball both on snaps and on carries, bad snaps and being uncharacteristically undisciplined committing inexcusable penalties to give Monroe somewhat of an easy field to play with at times. They cannot make these mistakes against a higher ranked North Forsyth, who through just two games, are averaging 250 passing/receiving yds per game as well as 123.5 rushing yds per game with Senior half back Jonathan Perez. North Forsyth has already scored 8 Touchdowns in their two games, they have combined to score 58 points so expect a heavy load from a higher classification opponent this week.
Keys to Watch for:
*Has LHS worked out the kinks and new year/team jitters? (Undisciplined Penalties, Mistakes etc)
*Can LHS keep up with North Forsyth's offense and limit them?
*How will the Devils handle their first test on the road?
I hope you guys enjoyed a look into my thoughts here on Pemberton's Place. We had a great first week and broadcast last week. It was a pleasure to keep you guys updated all game long. Be sure to listen again to us this week.
Thank you guys so much for supporting the Red Devil Network.
