SaberCats see action in first scrimmage

MOORE — In their first scrimmage of the season, Southmoore traveled to Edmond North Friday.

It was a mixed review for the SaberCats, who easily had more talent than the Huskies. However, they weren’t always able to get the players to do exactly what they were supposed to.

“Offensively, we were really sloppy,” Southmoore coach Jeff Brickman said. “In the past we’ve just kind always ran two or three formations. This year we were trying to formation people. In practice, there are no lights on and they are lining up. You get out here, some of those young guys forget how to line up.”

With freshman Conner Uselton getting the start, the SaberCats didn’t accomplish too much through the air. Senior wideout had a couple of opportunities to make some plays downfield, but was unable to come down with the ball.

The success Southmoore did find was in its running game. Especially with Pierce Spead running the rock. The 5-9, 191 pounder had some big blast up the middle, running over North defenders.

It was Spead who scored the only touchdown of the final scrimmage when the teams played one 15 minute quarter. Even though it was senior Jaelon Walker who carried the team down the field with a few bruising runs, Spead ran for nine yards without being touched.

“I think overall we did good as a team” Spead said. “But we just need to work on the mental breakdowns we had. We are learning new stuff everyday and we put in new things everyday at practice. We just have to get it down quicker.”

But maybe what was more disconcerting for the SaberCats was the play of its defense. They did a great job of slamming the door on the Huskies run game. But were picked up by North No. 1 and No. 2 quarterbacks.
