Game preview: Fisher at Flanagan-Cornell-Woodland/Roanoke Benson

Fisher (3-0) at FCW/RB (0-3)

7 p.m.

Flanagan

Storyline

Bunnies

When the schedule came out, most people figured a 2-1 start for the Bunnies would be good enough. Everyone except the players and coaching staff.

In Week 3, Fisher took down Tri-Valley 21-14 for a gigantic win that puts it halfway toward an automatic playoff berth.

Falcons

It has been the opposite of smooth sailing for the Falcons. They are off to an 0-3 start to the season and have yet to score a point, with shutout losses to Rockford Christian (34-0), Heyworth (53-0) and Eureka (52-0) on the bill.

The Hornets passed all over the Falcons last week, showing that FCW/RB could be vulnerable on the ground and through the air.

Keys to the game

Bunnies

Keep things simple

If the Bunnies don’t get too fancy, as expected, they should be able to control the game at the line of scrimmage with a heavy dose of inside runs on option reads.

Falcons

Create takeaways

If the Falcons, who are 1-29 over the past three-plus seasons, pull off an upset, it will be sparked by forcing two or three turnovers and perhaps taking one to the house.

Players to watch

Bunnies

Tyler Wilson

Honestly, who else? The tough-nosed running back already has 10 TDs this season. He might be deserving of some rest after toting the ball 67 combined times over the past two weeks.

Falcons

Clayton Sibert

The Falcons’ third-year quarterback will be working with fellow veterans Jake Albertson, Mitchell Lawless and Christian Harms to try and make plays against the Bunnies
