    The only thing scaring CO is their own offensive lack of consistency. Had the scare come from something DR was doing, it may have caused CO to run something other than their main 4 plays.
    We should expect to see an unleashing this week against LA.

    LA looked just so-so against Walnut…Special teams has got to improve dramatically, they’ve already given up 3 td’s on kick-offs…

  • The stands

    Amat has some sloppy play on Friday which resulted in a couple of turnovers so it could’ve won by more points. On the bright side, the running game is becoming more consistent as the O line improves. Barrera was an absolute beast, if he were to get more than seven carries like he received on Friday, Amat could better control the tempo. Things are coming together for the Lancers, 2-0 in the Mission league is a good start.

      ts ,
      Barrera is a beast at RB but he is a bigger beast on the D side of the ball . I think when the LANCERS get within 5 yards of the goal line is the time to use him . Instead of losing 2-3 yards a play like we have been , put him in with the BEEF package and let him bust in for the score . The run game is starting to click now and that should be our forte for the season , ground and pound , with some short passes to keep the defense guessing . Eventually if we keep this going some long ball options will open up .
      GO AMAT !!!!!

      • Conq ’76

        Gano used both Harwell and Cody in exactly that scenario…

        • The stands

          Those two guys would’ve excelled at any high school, obviously. I ran into both, separately, a couple of years ago. Both look like they could still play on the NFL. Nice guys, too.

        The ‘beef’ package is NOT effective unless they run something OTHER than straight up the gut. Opposing D’s KNOW what’s coming. Getting stuffed 3-4 times is self-defeating.

          Have you seen a team stop the beef ? I have not seen team stop it when it is run from the 2 yard line in . It is not always an up the gut run , and a different back can carry each time . GO AMAT !!!!!

          • fb102

            Why yes I have…..MANY times.
            7/10 times it IS up the gut. IIRC, Corona Centennial STOPPED it inside the 2.

            The play is not always up the gut . I know you are referring to the semi final game . That was not the beef and it should have been Camargo = Barrera back then , who carried the ball . That was an off tackle play on 4th down . My take is 1st and goal at the 1 or 2 , beef it 3 times and we’re in . I have not seen it stopped in 3-4 tries one after the other . It is not a one time play , 2-3 shots of it = TD !!! GO AMAT !!!!!
