Owls back in HHC action against Panthers; Seymour travels to Jennings County in Week 6

Fresh off a much-needed win over the Brownstown Central Braves in Week 5, Seymour will now hit the road on Friday to battle a neighboring foe in Jennings County.

The Owls lit up the scoreboard in the 21-point win over Brownstown, improving to 3-3 and getting back to .500 on the season.

Seymour head coach Tyson Moore was asked about getting back on track with the win after losing two straight one-score games.

“Friday was a big opportunity and a big showing for us,” Moore said. “I thought overall, we were in sync for most of the night on offense and defense. We had some highs and lows, but we were on the same page throughout the evening. We were very pleased with how we played.”

Seymour now goes to North Vernon to face the Panthers in a Hoosier Hills Conference matchup.

The Owls currently sit at 2-2 in the conference this season, defeating Jeffersonville and Columbus East but dropping two heartbreaking games to Floyd Central and Bedford North Lawrence. Moore spoke about the upcoming matchup with Jennings County on Friday.

“They are probably more athletic than they have ever been since I have been here,” he said. “They are an experienced team and have great size. They have grown as a program and have been playing good football. It’s a total shift in their team dynamic, and that says a lot about their coaching staff and how well they have been prepared this season.”

We now prepare for the final stretch of the high school football regular season with two more games left after this week.

Seymour hosts New Albany next week before traveling to Bloomington South in the final week. Moore spoke about keeping the team focused through the end of the season.

“We spoke to the team about having focus and keeping the energy going forward,” he said. “We have to prepare each and every day. This is the part of the season where teams start to separate themselves. The great teams play their best football in October and November. We have to continue to do things the right way.”

The Owls coach believes in his guys as they make their way toward sectional.

“In a month, half the teams in the state will be done with high school football,” Moore said. “We believe we have a team that can make a run. We have to take advantage of film, fix mistakes and continuously build off of what we do well. We’re taking the approach of getting better and better, which will take us into sectional when that comes.”
