Monett will try to get back on the winning track tomorrow night when the Cubs host the East Newton Patriots in a Class 3A District 12 and Big 8 Conference fooball game.
Last week the Cubs, 7-1 overall, 4-1 in the league and 0-1 in the district, sustained their first loss of the year when Cassville beat Monett 27-0.
East Newton, 1-7 for the year, 1-4 in the conference and 0-1 in the district, fell to Seneca last week 40-6.
The Cubs beat East Newton last year 42-6. East Newton last beat Monett 28-7 in 2002.
Offensively tomorrow, the Cubs will likely start Matt Hinkle, 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 Obermann and Bounous at ends, Kyle Fellwock at nose guard, Ethan Davis, Tristen Homfeldt, Jacob Childress and Matt Schiffner as linebackers, Spenser Witt and Eimer as cornerbacks and Marcus Enloe and Brandon Marion as safeties.
Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
