The Cane Bay Cobras bounced back from an opening-week loss to win their last two games, comfortably coasting past Goose Creek and Stratford.

They had to put the brakes on Sept. 8, getting a night off because they played in Week 0 on Aug. 18.

“I don’t know if a week off is ever good,” Cobras coach Russell Zehr said. “If you’re playing good, you hate to lose momentum. If you’re playing bad, that just gives you two weeks to be mad about it… It can be hard for the kids. You get them in a routine and then you have to change the routine. You might not get as much out of them.”

Like everybody at this point, though, the Cobras do have a few players dinged up, so from that standpoint a week off is not entirely a bad thing. Center Damon Price was injured in the 42-13 victory over Stratford on Sept. 1 and should be good to go on Sept. 15 at Timberland.

The Wolves have also won two in a row since losing their opener in Week 0. They also had a bye week on Sept. 8. On the season, running back Kevin Williams has over 400 yards for the Wolves and scored three touchdowns the last two games.

Zehr said the Cobras have to know where Williams is at all times.

“They’re very similar to us in what they do and how they do it,” Zehr said. “They run a lot of stuff we do and just throw it when they want to. They’re not really big but they come off the ball and hit you in the mouth for four quarters. They do all the things good teams do.”

It will be a tough test for the Wolves, who are aiming to help Art Craig win his 200th career game. He’s in his 19th year at Timberland after a stint at Cross.
