The Maryville Spoofhounds will have yet another challenge on their hands this week as they host Cameron on homecoming.
Coming off of a narrow 18-16 win last week, with the game winning touchdown in the final minute, the Hounds are looking to stay unbeaten.
Maryville trailed for the first time this season against Bishop LeBlond.
The Hounds had difficulties on third down on both sides of the ball, but were able to come through with a win.
"It was a good high school football game," Maryville head coach Matt Webb said. "I'm proud of our team and the way they came back and won."
The low-scoring affair was unusual, but both teams seemed to have the answer to everything the other threw at them.
"We responded all night, going down the field and putting drives together," Webb said. "We were able to take advantage of opportunities that LeBlond gave us."
As the Hounds get into the meat of the Midland Empire Conference portion of the schedule, Webb said the week-to-week philosophy still holds true.
"Cameron is a very good team," Webb said. "There are quality coaches at every school. You have to bring your 'A' game."
Webb said he and the Hounds will be watching for Cameron's triple-option offense, and the fact that their defense blitzes frequently has played a role in Maryville's preparation for the game.
"They'll be cranked up to come in here and try to beat us at homecoming," Webb said.
But coach Webb's "win the day" stance hasn't changed, the Hounds are still looking to defend the state championship title, and he is confident in his team and quarterback Trent Nally.
"We have a great 'man-up' atmosphere," Webb said. "They've done an outstanding job, and I'm proud of (Trent's) mentality. He stays humble and carries himself well on the field."
