Sentinel and Big Sky Prep for Crosstown

Posted: Updated:

"You know we try to not get caught up in the hype of it being crosstown and look at it like it's just the next game," said Big Sky Head Coach Matt Johnson.

"It's not a big game because it's Big Sky it's a big game because it's our next opponent," said Sentinel Head Coach Dane Oliver.

If you haven't heard the term coach speak well there you have as both Big Sky and Sentinel coaches tried to down play the hype that comes along with a cross town football game, but c'mon we all know these games are huge especially for the players.

"There's going to be a lot of emotions on the field because we know these kids and we don't know a lot of the other kids on teams as well," said Sentinel Senior Austin Violette.

"Being cross town it's a big deal as this will be the last time I will ever get to play Big Sky in a football game," said Sentinel Senior Zach Mustard.

"Oh we are very excited you know you come out here and you really don't have to say much.  Cross town games bring out the best in both teams, we both know what is happening this week and you don't have to say much really," said Big Sky Senior Alex Mustard.

Sentinel comes into the game 1-1.  They knocked off CMR in an upset in week one but followed it up with a disappointing performance last week in Bozeman and they don't want to go 1-2.

"It's not a must win for us but we have to improve upon the mistakes we made last week and that's been the approach for us this week.  Let's learn from what we did wrong and make those changes and if we can do that we know we are going to perform well on Friday night," said Oliver.

As for Big Sky they are 0-2 but have played some competitive football against Helena and Billings Senior.  But they have failed to put the ball in the end zone when needed something they will try to fix this Friday.

"The big thing is we have to be able to stop people when we need to and get them off the field.  We have to continue to move the football and then our big thing in Billings was we got in the red zone but didn't get anything out of it so we have to capitalize when we have opportunities and make the most of each situation," said Johnson.

Kickoff is Friday 7 PM at Missoula County Public Schools Stadium.
