Sequoyah vs Rome: Chiefs look to corral the big bad Wolves

Scouting the Chiefs

The Sequoyah Chiefs got a come from behind victory last week as they outlasted the River Ridge Knights. Sequoyah had their largest offensive output of the season last week as they scored five touchdowns. Two of those Touchdowns by Ean Marria, who also doubles as a run stopping defensive end. The Chiefs were able to run the ball when they needed to and that’s a credit to their offensive line led by seniors Brady Curl, Dmitri Morris and Asher Martineau. Will Rajecki (274 yards, 2-TDs), Jackson Hancock (204 yards, 1-TD) and Ean Marria (162 yards, 4-TDs) have been the beneficiaries of that blocking by the Chiefs front five. Sequoyah is averaging 19.6 points per game. Defensively, the Chiefs have sacked opposing quarterbacks 22 times this season with sophomore Matthew Matz leading the way with 7. They’ve also forced 11 turnovers on the season.

Scouting the Wolves

The Rome Wolves flexed their muscle last week and run away from Woodstock for their second consecutive region win. Rome quarterback Reece Fountain added to his passing numbers, as the senior signal caller has now thrown for 1,242 yards and 17-TDs. Special teams might come into play this week and if they do, watch for D.K. Daniel and Toot Stallings to show up big there for the Wolves. Rome’s defense has been dominant; in their five wins this season, they’ve only allowed three touchdowns. Speaking of defense, since joining Region 6-6A last season, Rome’s defense is allowing 4.5 points per game. In that eight game stretch, they’ve only allowed five touchdowns.

Pundit's Pick

All signs point to Rome to continue their domination of Region 6-6A, but if there is a team defensively that might be able to slow them down, we believe Sequoyah might be up to the task. The Chiefs will have to force Rome into a few turnovers and keep Fountain and the Wolves offense on the sidelines. We believe it’s possible, but not probably. Rome by three touchdowns.
