Woodstock vs Cherokee: Cross county rivals clawing for bragging rights

Scouting the Wolverines

The Woodstock Wolverines are looking to continue improvement on the first two weeks of the season. Not only did the Wolverines improve their point output in the second game of the season, they also seemed to have found a reliable receiving threat in senior Luke Renninger. Now that the Wolverines have found some success through the air, we won’t be surprised if Coach Devine and his staff look to continue to develop the ground game. Through two games, Woodstock is averaging 10.5 points per game.

Scouting the Warriors

The Cherokee Warriors dropped a heart-breaker last week and will certainly be looking to right the ship this week as they visit rival Woodstock. If they Warriors are going to win on the road, they’ll need to clean up ball security as they had two red-zone turnovers last Friday night. Despite the turnovers, there were many bright spots for the Warriors including quarterback Tanner Savasir, who showcased some of his mobility and defensive lineman J.D. Burn and Javon Hobson. Junior running back Christian Irwin looks like he is on the verge of a breakout season. He had a few punishing runs as the game wore on. The Warriors will need that style of play as they get into region play in a few weeks.

Pundit's Pick

Both Woodstock and Cherokee are in need of a win. We have noticed the improvement that the Wolverines have shown and they are definitely on the right track. However, Cherokee is too experienced and too deep in this one. We like the Warriors by 20.
