    Does Williamsburg stand a chance against Somerset?

    Williamsburg hasnít really played anyone yet. Leslie County is the best team they have played so far and they put a running clock on them. Can Williamsburg pull the upset?

    I think it will be a close game, but Somerset will come out on top.

    Somerset run game to strong, defense to solid. Williamsburg line will be the issues against this fast defense, and they have hitters, and that's not good for ponder if he has to scramble.

    Somerset is better, but it's foolish to think Williamsburg can't compete. I suspect this will be something like a 28-14 with a 14-7 score going in to the fourth. Going to be a lot of good defense in this one.

    If Williamsburg keeps it close they are a legit 1A title contender.

    Very interesting comment. Why do you think Williamsburg has a defense capable of keeping the score that low?

    They are giving up less than 12 points a game and a lot of the points scored on them this season have been scored after the starters are pulled. Williamsburg is well rested, they are not as tested as Somerset at this point, but I don't see anyone blowing Williamsburg out this year. I'm not sure they can win the 1a title and I'm not even sure they can beat Somerset, but I don't see anyone just running away from them. Williamsburg offense is also good enough to move the ball and eat time which I suspect will be their strategy this week, I don't see Williamsburg hurrying on offense and I do believe they will get a couple of first downs on most of their drives, they probably won't finish in the end zone but they will move the ball and be able to east some clock every time they touch the ball keeping the score lower.

    Williamsburg lead Leslie County 44-0 and Frankfort 48-0 before either of those teams scored on them. They also lead Middlesboro 47-14 before Middlesboro punched in a couple of late scores.

    Williamsburg is mostly pass. If they come in throwing the ball around every play it will make for a long night and won't eat the clock keeping Somerset offense on the field and that's not a good idea against the bunnies. The clock stops on incomplete passes, and this is the best defense they've seen. They tried it last year and got smacked 34-7, and pretty much the whole offense returns, and defense. 75% of the secondary returns, and linebackers. Somerset is no joke stacked.
