KINGMAN - There's one thing the Lee Williams football team has in common with tonight's opponent, Holbrook High School: Both teams were shut out in their season openers last weekend.

While Volunteers coach Eugene Kramer will not take today's game lightly, he also sees a window for opportunity.

"I really felt the score did not give us a good prediction of what it actually was. It was a different game, if you really look at the film," Kramer said. "There (are) a lot of times we just had one or two miscues. We'll eliminate those."

Lee Williams lost its season opener 43-0. Holbrook lost its season opener 47-0. And that's not the only reason Kramer is encouraged about what his Volunteers squad will go up against.

"I think our interior line matches up with them real well. That, we're really excited about," Kramer said. "I think we can move the ball on the ground. We could have done it last week, too. This week, we're ready to go up there and get a win."

The Volunteers now have their first varsity game under their belt. They got over that hump, but last weekend's final score is still eating at them.

"I'm not going to lie. We saw the score, and we kind of got a little silly about it like, 'Here we go.' We still think that," Kramer said.

"We've just got to go out and play every game to the best of our abilities."

They're ready to move past opening night, starting with today's away game against the Roadrunners at 7 p.m.

"This week, we're a lot more confident. The ice was broken. Once that was broken, every quarter from that point on we played a little bit better," Kramer said.
