The Look Ahead: Bellwood

Tyrone is looking to defend its Backyard Brawl title

Both teams are better than their record indicates, so whoever wins tonight’s Bellwood at Tyrone game might look back at this game as the turning point in what has thus far been a tough season for both Blair County rivals.

The Golden Eagles are coming off back-to-back road losses with the most recent against Bald Eagle Area.

While the 1-3 record might not look good on paper, Tyrone showed last week that they can compete with anyone as the Golden Eagles put up 19 unanswered points just after Tyrone went down 21-0 early in the first half.

While Bellwood has not been victorious yet this season, they also have some bright spots on the team that could cause problems for Tyrone if they do not respect the Blue Devils.

Freshman running back Alex Mccartney is the heart and soul of the Blue Devil offense. So far this season Mccartney has rushed for 575 yards on 95 carries finding the endzone 4 times.

The Blue Devils have struggled to move the ball through the air to start the season off. Starting quarterback Holden Schreier has been held to only 395 yards in his first year as a starter with 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

The most productive receiver for the Blue Devils has been Colin Gibbons pulling in 11 catches for 162. Gibbons has yet to find the endzone this season.

The Blue Devil defense has not had much success this year in terms of getting to the quarterback. Bellwoods’ only sack this season came from Sophmore Logan Ridgway.

The Golden Eagles have to work hard to limit mistakes if they are to defend the Backyard Brawl trophy.

The Golden Eagles have struggled with turning the ball over this season. They have a -7 turnover ratio in only four games.

For the teams to have success this season they must do a better job holding onto the ball if they wish to compete with elite competition in the LHC

With the athletic ability the Golden Eagles have this season, it’s hard to understand the 1-3 record. The Golden Eagles. They will look to get over their recent defeats and show the community this Friday why Bellwood will always be the little brother.
