Warriors look to upset undefeated Rams

Guam - The #2 seed Pepsi Warriors will meet the undefeated Cars Plus Rams for the 2nd time this season Sunday at the UOG Field. The Warriors fell victim to the Rams in the second week of play for their only loss of the season. This time around the defense looks prepared for Quarterback Brant McCreadie and his high-powered offensive. In order for Pepsi to be successful on Sunday they need to watch the run and shut down the pass, come kickoff.

Starting cornerback for the Warriors Justin Cruz told KUAM Sports, "We are just going to play the pass like we did and watch the run too because they really improved on their running game from last season. 'Pompy' (rookie Jess Manglona) is a real dangerous runner and also Anthony (Viemana) who is a real powerful runner, powerful back. They have so many dangerous weapons on the receiving end. We just have to tune up on that and do what we do all 4 quarters. We did a pretty good job the first the meeting we just started slipping away 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarter. The first quarter was pretty good, so we're just going to try and capitalize on fixing all our mistakes for this game." 

On the other side of the ball the Warriors offense needs to control the ball and keep their defense off the field as much as possible. In the last game the offense was out of sync having to play catch up ball the entire second half. With a new quarterback under center now, the offense will have to get things going early and make a statement through all four quarters.

Warriors receivers Sandy Fejeran added, "The Rams have a really young, really fast defense. I know the last game with us we were having a tough time finding the openings as far as the receivers. They were stuffing our run so we're just going to have to come out hard. We started messing up and it was a snowball effect from the beginning of the game all the way to the end so we couldn't really get anything going and the fact that our defense is so good we can't afford mistakes like that.

"I guess everyone knows that we Tommy Morrison back at quarterback, Eric still injured so the game against the Angels Tommy really showed that veteran leadership pays off in the long run and I think having Tommy back this weekend is going to help us out a lot."
