NASHVILLE -- Berrien High welcomes Region 2-AA's newest member tonight when the Rebels (1-2) travel to Pierce County.
After defeating Wilcox County two weeks ago, Berrien head coach Mike Creasman wants to carry over the momentum his team built on offense.
"We need to control the clock," he said. "We don't need negative yardage. If we get a penalty, it's very tough to make 15 yards in the wing-T in three downs. And sometimes after an open date, you worry about the offense being out of sync."
Creasman has been pleased with Berrien's ball-control offense, but wants to see improvement in the red zone. That change began to happen against Wilcox County, but the Rebels still average under nine points a game.
Pierce County (1-2) has stuck with its East Georgia roots in the early part of the schedule, making the Bears something of a mystery to 2-AA fans. Creasman scouted their 34-14 win over West Laurens-Dublin and came away impressed.
"These games (in region play) will be a lot tougher," he said. "I think the region is more balanced than it has been in times past."
