The Castleberry team, winless in 7 games, is struggling this year but has been battling in most of their games. The Lions, 4-7 last year, changed from a spread to a wing-t type of offense and pass very little.
The Lions have 1106 yards total offense with 959 yards in rushing and 147 yards passing. The Wildcats have 3496 yards of offense with 3178 by rushing and 318 by passing. Kennedale has been scoring at an average of 57.3 per game while Castleberry has scored an average of 8.1 points per game.
Castleberry has been stingy on the rushing defense allowing only 119.7 yards per game and lead the district in this category. Kennedale is second in rushing defense, allowing 134.3 yards per game. On total defense, the Wildcats lead the district by allowing only an average of 216.3 combined yards per game. The Lions total is 281 yards per game.
Castleberry?s defense has had an average of 33.0 points per game scored on them, while the Kennedale has given up a very stingy 11.1 points.
What to Watch: Look to see how Washington/Hayes/Michener and the Cats offensive line do against Castleberry?s best on defense.
The Take: This should be just a tune-up to next?s week game against the Alvarado Indians who like Kennedale should be undefeated in district play entering the game.
