Raceland will more than likely have a running clock.

Oct 29, 18, 08:38 AM #4Any NKY posters that can elaborate on what we should see from Brossart?
Oct 29, 18, 03:18 PM #5Are there no Brossart posters or anyone up that way interested in this one?
Oct 29, 18, 05:21 PM #6We are very interested, and actually looking forward to our trip to Raceland and checking out the new modified digs.
This will be our third consecutive trip to Raceland, and fourth post-season playoff game with the Rams overall. In 2015 we played a very contentious game at Bob Miller Stadium in Alexandria, losing 22-14.
In our two games at Raceland the Rams have had their way with us, handing us a 47-21 loss in 2016, and we were shown the door early a year ago, falling 55-14.
We compare the Raceland program a lot to the Beechwood program, in that they are a football school, housing a mid-major football program in a Class 1A school. I counted 56 players on their roster (15-Srs, 14 Jrs, 16-So, and 11 Fr), compared to our 35, and our school offers soccer, which accounted for 11 potential senior and numerous underclass football players. We are still looking for our first playoff win, while the Rams are coming off of a State Class 1-A runner-up finish.
We are decided underdogs, and will have to catch lightning in a bottle to pull the upset. Nonetheless, our guys are practicing hard this week in preparation for the game and will play it one snap at a time on both sides of the ball. Any chance we have will be predicated on stopping the big play, and grinding out some positive yardage on offense. We have a veteran quarterback in Tyler MacDonald who has an effective throwing arm, but lost his primary target from a year ago when Bryce Donnelly walked down the aisle. We have two big, strong running backs/linebackers in Nate Bezold and Mason Dennis, who would be a compliment to anyone's roster, and an effective running back in Adam Orth.
We will play hard for 48 minutes and let the chips fall where they may.

Oct 29, 18, 06:00 PM #8@Mustang, I think you’ll find the updates to the field and the surrounding area appealing. Our field house is the next to be replaced. It is truly an eyesore.
I hope you guys have a safe trip down the AA and enjoy RamLand hospitality.

Oct 30, 18, 11:53 PM #10Yes, Raceland should win. Having said that, I am always worried when playing a NKY team. Most NKY schools / teams play a pretty good brand of football. Through the years I have found that looking at a NKY teams schedule / W-L record can be very deceiving. All teams in that area are pretty good and a bad or average record is bc they are playing good teams. Several years have found a lower NKY seed have beaten the higher seed from other areas.
As for this one … as in any game, imo Raceland's O and D line play will tell the story on the outcome. Most games, our size / depth on the line has worn the opposition down as the game goes on. Raceland's losses and close games came when the line play was matched. The Rams LB's have also played very good this season.
I hope that the travel / weather conditions are good for the Brossart fans, team drive in and that regardless of the outcome that both teams stay injury free.
BTW, Thanks @Mustang for your info.
