Deja vu strikes again this season, as the Lancers are headed back to Pinkerton to play the Astros. In the Mack Plaque game, the Astros won 24-20, but the Lancers are hoping to change the outcome this time around. 

In the Mack Plaque game, the Lancers had a bright spot in the loss: linebacker Ty Parsons, who had an interception and four tackles in the game.

Parsons’ expectation is to have a similar game to last time, just with a different result

“Have a great game and hopefully come out on top,” Parsons said. 

Parsons believes in his coaches, and trusts they will be able to stop Pinkerton this time around.

“Well we’re starting with a new gameplan,” Parsons said, “We should be able to stop their offense much more successfully and minimize our mistakes.”

Parsons looks at the game from a moral standpoint and believes chemistry will be the key to winning the game. 

“Staying locked in, playing physical, not getting down on anyone, and keeping the energy high,” Parsons said. 

Parsons thinks that getting stops on defense may be the difference on the scoreboard. 

“Stop them on third downs,” Parsons said. “We have been able to hold them to third downs, we just couldn’t stop them before getting a first down.”

Along with Parsons, quarterback Sam Ogden also played very well in the game, rushing for 79 yards and throwing for 45 yards with three completions on the night. 

Ogden expects the defense to “play different” and pull out all the stops to try and win.

“We expect them to give us their all,” Ogden said. “When they play us they tend to dig deep in their bag and pull out a few tricks to throw us off, and we just have to prepare for that.”

Ogden believes that the adjustments they have made will pay off, and believes that Londonderry “knows how they play”.

“We are going to make adjustments according to their strengths and their weaknesses and attack with different execution,” Ogden said. “This game is a bigger stage with a lot more to lose.”

Ogden feels that they cannot “overlook” the Astros. 

“I think before – coming off an undefeated regular season last year and being undefeated going into that game week four – we might’ve underestimated them, but this time it will be different,” Ogden said. 

The Lancers would come out of this game victorious, winning 42-7. They were led by many big plays from the defense, and now they head to Exeter where they will face Bedford in a huge rematch.
