It’s another battle of Marion County teams on the gridiron tonight, as Pleasantville welcomes Pella Christian to town for a district showdown.
The Eagles (3-2) are starting to find their stride after a gruesome non-district schedule including coming off of a 51-18 shellacking of Woodward-Academy last week. Even though Pleasantville has had a slow start to the season, Eagles head coach Rich Kacmarynski tells KNIA/KRLS Sports he expects the same level of intensity from the Trojans as years past.
“If you look at them on film they look really similar from a schematic standpoint. The only difference is the new faces but they still play hard and are well coached.”
While the defense has kept the Trojans (1-4) in most games, the offense has struggled to find rhythm including last week’s 13-12 loss against Colfax-Mingo. Head Coach Mack Jorth tells KNIA/KRLS Sports the team needs to be more consistent to churn out wins.
“We just need to be a little more consistent with everything we do and do a better job of executing. Losing close games comes down to a couple plays and while the effort is there we need to be a little more consistent.”
The matchup gets underway at 7 p.m. this evening at Pleasantville High School. Tune into FM 92.1 KRLS for the Pella Christian perspective and KNIA3 at for the Pleasantville perspective starting at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame shows.
