It will be quite a test for the undefeated and #1 Missouri state-ranked Class 3A Monett Cubs tomorrow night when the Carl Junction Bulldogs invade Burl Fowler Stadium to take on Monett in the annual homecoming football game.
Carl Junction is 3-1 for the season and in the Big 8 Conference. Monett is 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the league.
Last week the Bulldogs lost for the first time this season, 21-10, to the Seneca Indians. Monett downed Mt. Vernon last week, 33-22.
Monett beat Carl Junction, 48-2, last year. At the time the Bulldogs were unbeaten at 4-0. Two years ago Carl Junction handed the Cubs their only regular season loss, 22-7, at Carl Junction.
Offensively, the Cubs will likely start Jesse Bremer, Ryan Cody and Spenser Witt as wide receivers, Chris Eimer as slot back, Jacob Murphy and Beau Bounous as tackles, Jeff Craft at center, Jason Obermann and Ryne Johnson as guards, Tyler Green at quarterback and Christian Privett at runningback.
Defensively, Monett will probably start Jason Obermann and Beau Bounous at ends, Kyle Fellwock at nose guard, Ethan Davis, Tristen Homfeldt, Jacob Childress and Matt Schiffner as linebackers, Spenser Witt and Chris Eimer as cornerbacks and Marcus Enloe and Brandon Marion as safeties.
Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
