In class A, Belle Plaine grabbed the fourth a final playoff spot in district six by winning the final two games of the season and the Plainsmen go on the road to take on top ranked and unbeaten Lisbon.
Belle Plaine coach Todd Bohlen says they have improved every week and are playing their best football right now. His team lost to Lisbon 28-0 back in week three. He says they can run power football or spread it out and go shotgun on the offensive side.
Bohlen says to have a chance they will need to use ball control on offense and grind it out without any negative plays. He says to be the best you have to play the best and the gives them a big challenge.
Class A 10th ranked BGM (Brooklyn) is at home against Danville. Danville is 5-4 and BGM coach Jerrod Burns says the Danville offense will provide a challenge. He says they spread things out and like to throw the ball, and their quarterback can also run the ball and use the option.
Burns says the defense will need to be sound in its assignments and focused. He says they will need to get some stops on third down to control the game. Burns says a team cannot afford to have an off night once the playoffs begin. He says you have to execute your gameplan and they know that Danville can score and they can’t be overlooked.
