Opportunity knocks at Capitol Hill


For all the problems faced in Chickasha football over the years, they pale in comparison to what this week's opponent ,Capitol Hill, has faced.

Between 2008 and 2012, the Redskins have won all of four games, and last season they went winless. Their only win so far this year was against Grant in a 44-22 decision on Sept. 12. Last week they were dropped by district rivals Duncan 61-6. It is surely an opportunity for the Fightin' Chicks to get a game back in the win column, but they won't be taking this opponent lightly.

"We still need to make sure we get our assignments right and do our job defensively," head coach Tom cobble said. "Some nights, if they get it together they can make it a pretty close game."

A Thursday night game also makes it a short week for Chickasha, although that seems to have come at the right time.

"We came into this week a little banged up," Cobble said, "so we've had lighter hitting in practice this week. But we've also switched to having heavy practices at the beginning of the week. So, it's not too much of a difference."

Unlike their last two opponents, which produced two dramatic endings with mixed results for Chickasha, the Redskins operate in a spread-out offense. Speed on the outside will be important if they are to get away from a banged up, put still potent, Chickasha defense that has spent the past two weeks fighting battles on the inside.

It has come at a cost, however, as linebackers Evan Copeland and Triston Hill will again miss this week's game due to injury. Defensive tackle Alex Scallion is now The Capitol Hill defense should line up in a 3-3 set, which bodes well for the strongest part of Chickasha's offense: their running game.
