Force Open Up Against Wildcatters
GREENVILLE, SC (March 20, 2010) - Taking place on the Southern Indoor Football League opening weekend, the Lafayette Wildcatters travel to South Carolina to take on the Greenville Force for a Sunday matinee at 3:00 pm.
Lafayette will roll out in 2010 with arguably the SIFL's top two quarterbacks. Omar Haughabook joins the Wildcatters after spending 2009 with the Houma Conquerors. Omar earned All-SILF honors in 09 after finishing tops in the SIFL in total offense (161.9 yds/gm). Haughabook will unite with Bo Bartik forming one of indoor footballs top quarterback tandems. Last season, the two combined to amass 3,161 total offense yards along with 44 touchdowns giving Lafayette head coach John Fourcade with plenty of options behind center.
Greenville opens the weekend trying to resolve some issues after a 63-6 drubbing in a exhibition contest by the hands of the Columbus Lions back on March 8th. "When we faced off against the Lions our club got a rude awakening and learned we have a long road ahead of us," says Greenville Force head coach Tony Wells.
When it came to talking about Lafayette, coach was adamant about how the key to a victory will be stopping the Wildcatters quarterback play. "Biggest thing we can do to earn a victory on Sunday is constrict them from the big plays," continued Wells. "If we can force them to nickel and dime situations, I like our chances."
On Sunday, the Force will feature arguably one of the SIFL's top quarterback-receiving tandems in Andrew Webb and Isaac West. Last season, the two managed to hook up for 17 touchdowns leading Greenville to the number four passing offense in the AIFA (216 yds/gm). The tandem will look to help improve the club that went 0-3 in the red-zone and committed three turnovers in their exhibition contest against the Lions.
The Lafayette Wildcatters take on the Greenville Force in the Bi-Lo Center this Sunday at 3:00 pm. For more ticket information, contact the Force front office at 864-250-4935 or visit them on the web at www.gvilleforce.com
