Area football previews: Week 5
By Jay Neal [email protected]
Groveton Indians (2-2) at Alto Yellowjackets (0-4)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Cam’ron Matthews Field at Jacket Stadium: Home of The Mean Sting
Last Week: Garrison 63, Alto 12; Groveton 23, Grapeland 8
Next Week: Both teams have an open date.
Game Analysis: These two schools first met way back in 1928. Alto has won five of the last six meetings against the Indians. It has been 11 years since Groveton last defeated the Yellowjackets. The Indians are a good football team. Their only losses have been to undefeated Lovelady (20-14 in Week 1) and to 3-1 Frankston (14-7) in Week 3. Indian defense has been giving up just 12.5 points per game. The Mean Sting will have to capitalize on all their scoring opportunities this week. Homecoming will be celebrated in Alto this week, which could give the Jackets a little bit of extra motivation.
