Lafayette, LA (KADN) -- Two undefeated teams go to toe-to-toe when St. Martinville comes here to Carencro to try to take out the Bears. Carencro crushed them last year 58-19, but coach Tony Courville says it is a new season. Both teams rely on speed and athleticism.
"We talked about them all week so far as dangerous," Courville said. "You make one little mistake and they'll take it to the house and defensively they will get after you from different points on the field. We are going to do what we do best and lineup and playball."
Carencro running back Taylor Prejean ran for 150 yards last week in a win over Southside.
"I told the guys we were facing adversity and let's stay with it," Prejean said. The Bears had to play the game on Wednesday because of the hurricane. They are grateful to be back to a regular football week.
The St. Martinville Tigers have been practicing on the grass on this week to get used to the field at Carencro. Both coaches say 3rd down is important to get off the field since both teams like to run the football.
"They are outstanding they have really good athletes and they have really good team speed so we have to be up for the challenge," St. Martinville head coach Vincent DeRouen said.
Kickoff for Friday's game is scheduled for 7pm at Carencro High School.
