With 628 net yards gained against the Alberta Golden Bears, the Huskie offense seems to be getting on track at the right time of the season. “It was a big game for the entire offense,” stated slotback Jeff Moore. “We clicked on all cylinders – the OLine played great, the quarterbacks hit everything, and the receivers had a good day as well.”
“We had a good week of practice,” added Garrett Burgess regarding the preparation leading up the the UofA game. “We just started to gel. We struggled a little during our 1st drive, but once we got going we were hard to stop.” A personal highlight for Burgess was his 1st CIS touchdown. “I’ve been close a lot of times – getting within the 5 yard line and getting tackled. I just caught it and fought until I got in – I was tired of getting rejected.”
Moore has had a lot of key catches in the last two weeks. “I just go out there and do my job.” He was quick to give some credit to Trent Peterson. “Trent’s been looking at me all season basically.”
The Dogs will hope to continue this momentum as they head to Vancouver to face a tougher challenge in the UBC TBirds. “We need to be prepared for the coverages that they play, and run crisp routes with good timing,” Garrett commented.
“They’re playing at home,” Moore added about the TBirds 1st home playoff game in over a decade. “They’ll probably be comfortable, and we’ll have to be ready for a battle.”
Later today, Huskie Outsider followers will hear from defensive end Jon DeWitt, and perhaps one or two other members of the Huskies as well.
