Quakers take game's experience on road
September 7, 2012Eastern Indiana Sports
Earlham College has one game under its belt and a road game next on the schedule.
The Quakers travel Saturday to Gambier, Ohio, to take on Kenyon College. Kickoff is 1 p.m.
“We’re just excited to go on the road,” said first-year Earlham coach Neil Kazmierczak. “I think it’s a big step in this team’s development, how they travel. I think this will be a good test.”
Earlham is 0-1 after dropping a 33-3 decision to Oberlin last week. The Lords also dropped their season opener, falling 20-0 to Bluffton.
Brett Williams led Kenyon with 98 rushing yards in the loss at Bluffton.
“They are a very physical power running team,” Kazmierczak said. “That’s what they want to do.”
Kazmierczak also wants to establish a running game Saturday.
That, he said, is one of the goals this weekend for the Quakers.
“We definitely have to get the running game going. To be consistent on offense, you have to be able to move the ball on the ground,” Kazmierczak said. “We want to be more physical on the point of attack. We want to clean up our assignments. We definitely have to be able to move the ball on the ground.”
