MOC-Floyd Valley vs Central Lyon/George-Little Rock

MOC-Floyd Valley faces Central Lyon/George-Little Rock this week, and Hegstad says their 1-4 record doesn’t show how good the Lions are.
Hegstad says his team just needs to be consistent this week.
Central Lyon/George-Little Rock travels to Orange City to take on the Dutch of MOC-Floyd Valley Friday in week two of district play.
The Lions are coming off their first win of the season last week with an impressive throttling of Class 2A District 1 foe BH/RV 41-14. Lions senior Kole Telford made his first start at tailback and responded with 279 yards on the ground with four touchdowns while the Lion defense came up with five turnovers.
As the Lions head into another week of district play, it’s important for them not to overlook MOC-FLOYD VALLEY. The last two meetings between CENTRAL LYON/GEORGE-LITTLE ROCK and MOC-FLOYD VALLEY has come down to the wire. Last season in Rock Rapids the Lions came out on top 23-14, but had to hold off a late rally by the Dutch in the second half. In 2017 in Orange City, the Dutch forced the Lions into 5 turnovers and came away with a 19-12 victory.
MOC-Floyd Valley has struggled offensively so far this season. Through five games the Dutch have scored a total of 14 points, and have been shut out three times. Coming into the content tonight, six different quarterbacks have taken snaps under center for the Dutch.
For CENTRAL LYON/GEORGE-LITTLE ROCK, the key to remaining undefeated in district play will come down to continuing to do the little things right and play with the same confidence they showed last week.
Kick off is at 7 pm at Korver Field in Orange City.
