Sunshine preps for John Essex

Published 12:00 am Thursday, October 7, 2004

Tonight’s game features the Sunshine Tigers playing host to the John Essex Hornets.

The Hornets are coming off a 28-14 sting against the Linden High School Patriots last week at home.

The Tigers, meanwhile, enter tonight’s game after a 41-8 loss to the highly touted American Christian Patriots.

Sunshine is only 1-4 overall, but don’t let their record fool you.

The Tigers one win so far this season came against 3A Calhoun, a game in which Sunshine was heavily favored to lose.

Tonight’s matchup is a 1A regional showdown between two teams trying to get better.

Although the Hornets are favored to win this game, it should be a good one.

The Tigers held Linden scoreless until the fourth quarter when they played the Patriots at home a few weeks ago, so look for more of the same tonight against the Hornets.

My prediction: John Essex 21, Sunshine 15
