Owensboro will look to stay hot on Thursday, hoping to grab their first road win of the season when they travel to take on Muhlenberg County.
The Red Devils are coming off of a second straight win in which they put up at least 50 points, defeating Ohio County 56-7. Senior Kenyatta Carbon led the offense with three rushing touchdowns and 75 yards on nine carries, while senior Deion Winstead got a pair of touchdowns and 90 rushing yards on three carries.
Senior quarterback Kasey Boone was nearly perfect on the day, throwing for 103 passing yards and a touchdown on 7-8 passing. Senior Gus Cecil was the lone receiver to grab a touchdown, getting two catches to go along with 26 receiving yards.
Owensboro’s defense was also on top of its game last week, holding its opponent in single digits for the second game in a row. They’ll be taking on a Mustangs team that has been struggling as of late, still searching for their first win sitting at 0-7.
This week the Red Devils will look to stifle sophomore quarterback Kanyon Johnson, who Head Coach Jay Fallin described as a dynamic player that makes them go on offense. To do so, Owensboro’s defense will have to be in sync and aware of the many schemes their opponent will run.
“There are multiple threats in their offensive attack and will use a variety of formations and motions to try to get us out of position,” Fallin said. “It will be vital that we communicate and line up properly to their various looks.”
Despite the Mustangs record, the preparation and expectations for Fallin and company won’t be any different this week. Fallin and the Red Devils will look to get healthy and improve in every facet of the game on the road, hoping to come away a bit stronger while grabbing a win.
“We want to be at our best at 7:00 on Thursday evening,” Fallin said. “And [we will be] ready to play fast and confident in all three phases of the game.”
