Give Stratford's D an A-plus

I must be honest. I knew Stratford was good, and capable of beating Canadian with a great performance. But I sure didn't expect the Elks' defense to shut down the Wildcats on offense like they did. But hand it to Eddie Metcalf, his coaches and most of all the players. They played great on defense, and that's mainly why they won 17-7. The coverage in the secondary and by linebackers was exceptional against a very good Canadian team. The Elks limited Canadian's passing game to 6-of-26 for just 95 yards and intercepted three passes. Just because Canadian lost, I'm sure not about to give up on their chances to win a state title in 1A's Division I. They are still an outstanding team capable of going all the way. After all, they lost a game last year and still won in Class 2A. I've thought all along Stratford is just as capable of winning a state title in Division II and I still think that way. Hats off to two excellent teams.
