This week, the 1-2 Marceline Tigers Black Rage football team takes to the road for a non-Conference battle with the Putnam County Midgets in Unionville. The Tigers are coming in off of a shutout loss at home in the Bell Game against rival Brookfield.
Putnam County is 0-3 this season, with losses to Albany, Trenton, and Princeton. “Offensively they will run out of the Pistol,” said Head Coach Paul Thomas. “Defensively, we can expect a 4-2-5 formation.”
The Tigers are a healthy team, and Coach Thomas continues to look for the entire team to step up under the Friday Night Lights on the road this week.
Last season, the Midgets finished fifth in the Tri-Rivers Conference, with a record of 1-9, 1-4 in Conference. Putnam County did miss the playoffs last season.
