Cam Meyer, Editor In-Chief

MV football Rams have not been able to find their groove over the past couple of weeks.

The Rams fell once again to the Mascoutah Indians on September 3, 2021, with a final score of 47-12.

Now, losing two games in a row is never fun, but losing the first two games of the season makes it even less fun.

“Our head wasn’t in the game,” stated varsity head coach Greg Graves

After a loss like that there has to be some way the Rams bounce back.

“[We will have] a great week of practice and we will also utilize our players,” expressed Coach Graves.

One would have to think that travel had some part to play in the Rams back to back losses, in just the past two games they have traveled over three hours combined.

“I think it played a little bit, but not a big part,” Coach Graves responded.

Looking back the Rams could have made a few changes to their lineup.

“We could have had more aggressive players on defense to slow down the mobile quarterback,” acknowledged Coach Graves.

You always have to have confidence, even if you are coming off back to back losses.

“Yes, I have the confidence that we can defeat Triad,” stated Coach Morrison.

With this upcoming game against Triad, fans might think that the players and fans will bring the energy from start to finish.

“Everyone likes to play at home,[and] I think it will get everyone very excited,” Coach Morrison responded.

Even if fans are not able to go see the game in person, they are still able to listen or watch the game through 94.1 WMIX.

“The game was broadcast through WMIX, they provided video and audio,” stated Mr. Seth English, MV Athletic Director.

“They will always broadcast the game if they have the ability,” added Mr. English.

“All of the home games will be broadcast on WMIX with audio and video, but the game against Mascoutah could not be broadcast because they are not a part of NHFS [an exclusive network],” Mr. English added.
