I GUARANTEE Maroa is not looking past Carrollton. Maybe some of the fans are expecting a blowout, but at this point in the season the mantra is survive and advance. I am certain both teams have seen what they perceive as weaknesses in the opponent's game, and they will do their best to expose it. It will be a hard-hitting, fast-paced game on Saturday with two spread teams playing, so both sides better strap it up and bring it!

Ocho Cinco...I believe you are 100% on that is exactly what I expect. Both these teams seem to have good team speed and the ability to score lots of points. I really think it will come down to execution,, Turnovers, penalties and who exposes the weaknesses the best. Both teams seems to have good solid defenses. Sometimes momentum is a weird thing. We found out against Salt Fork and Maroa found out against CAM how it can make a weird turn. Hawks I am sure are the underdog in this based on past successes. I believe most people expect Maroa to win but I believe most of those same people thought that CAM would beat Triopia. Can't wait to witness what happens!

There are NO Maroa fans on this board who aren't expecting a blowout.

I am have not seen one Maroa fan predict a blow out on here.. the people predicting a blow out have been fans of different schools.

Outcoached, over confident, too many "breeze" games and sat at home on Thanksgiving. Still think MF is favorite but I am not sold on anything like a running clock.
They cut off our passing attack early and we were conservative with running the ball. We had 3 very capable runningbacks. One of them the year after would finish 2nd team all state for class 4. Funny thing that he and I were in the same class together in kindergarden. Funny how your friends turn out to be.

Their QB Hockaday is also a good DB as well. He has been really good at executing plays all year. So if it comes down to that, it will be hard to stop if they have the ball in crunch time. However, same goes for Maroa. You don't want it to come down to crunch if you have face a defense like Carrollton.

Carrollton's 28-0 win over Cumby was evidence alone on how solid their defense is. There is no debate on that. Carrollton MUST win the turnover battle period. That is number 1 on the list to keys to this game. Carrollton also MUST win field position battle against Maroa. Make Maroa have to sustain long drives to score and by contrast Carrollton must give them self a short field to score. If they can accomplish those two goals then I think Carrollton can hang around for a little while. They must be opportunistic and capitalize on any mistakes Maroa makes.

I agree with most of this but from what i've seen on film. It looks to me like they match-up pretty good in the skill position area (speed, athletic, etc). If we can win the battle in the trenches on boths side of the ball, that could be a huge advantage. Defense has been mostly about team speed and flying to the ball for the Hawks. The turnover battle has been very lopsided in there favor...something like 30 takeaways and only given it away 8 times or so. The last two weeks the Hawks penalties have been cut in half. I am sure both teams will make some changes to try and stop the other in every aspect of the game. Both sets of coaches are very capable and students of the game! One just has more deep postseason experience but none works any harder than the Hawks! Most people don't know it but our entire coaching staff is volunteer with the exception being the head coach! That goes for all sports in Carrollton! Not to get off on a side note but considering that and the baseball, basketball and now Football teams success at the state level say a lot about the work ethic of these kids & coaches along with the support of the community!

How do schools like Carrollton prevent burnouts from the athletes who play football, basketball, and baseball... etc. If my family didn't move to STL, I guess I would've gone through the same because I love playing sports. Like how do you move on from football to basketball. All summer your preparing for football and then you get ready for basketball.

FANS can expect a blowout...no one cares what fans think. That has nothing to do with the actual team. I expect a blowout as well but what do I know!

If you think Central Illinois football is bad, I can't imagine how you feel about SOUTHERN Illinois football

I didnt say it was bad, I just said I expected a blowout from Maroa

A SOUTHERN team gave us all we could handle last year at state. There are a handful that can hang I guess....

(We had a lot of skill players who were really fast. Our QB was a track star and is now a walk QB for Mizzou and one of our WR's is now at Michigan on schalorship.) Anyway they beat us 35-7. The game was held at their place, but the point is that we were overconfident.

Lesson learned.

Maroa better be ready.
Maroa isnt looking past anyone, they know what Carrollton has and can do. Maroa players and staff as well as fans know on any given day any team can win, They will be poised and ready just like Carrollton will be. This should be one heck of a game.
