Dunedin-Hudson Preview

After starting the season 0-2, Dunedin has bounced back with three wins in its last four games.

A resurgence for the Dunedin Falcons football program has emerged this season behind good quarterback play and a belief in winning games behind the coaching of Mitch Disney and crew.

On the other end, the Hudson Cobras football program has seen improvement this 2020 campaign. Tim Hicks’ club defeated Parrish Community 48-12 last week. Now both programs from neighboring counties will meet tonight at Dunedin Memorial Stadium and we take a closer look at the matchup.

Hudson (2-2) at Dunedin (3-3); Kickoff is at 7 p.m. 

Quarterback play favors Dunedin

This part of the game definitely goes in favor of Dunedin, with Falcons’ starting quarterback Dylan Oester has thrown for 1,189 yards and 16 touchdowns against seven interceptions. Hudson’s numbers pales in comparisons, as the Cobras average 55.3 yards through the air with starter Hunter Young. Oester’s play under center will have a big impact on this game. 

...On the other hand Hudson likes to run 

The Cobras on the other hand like to do their damage on the offensive end on the ground, as Hudson averages 184.3 yards per game. The team’s leading rusher is Bryan Lindsey, who has 277 yards this season. Hudson’s second leading rusher, AJ Blanton, is at 274 yards this fall. Young also chips in the run game and has 100 yards himself.

Shaping up for a lot of points

Both teams can put up plenty of points on the scoreboard, but they also can yield them to opponents. On the season so far, Hudson through four games is giving up an average of 27.7 points per game, while Dunedin is at 28.8 points a contest. In short, there should be plenty of points scored in tonight’s cross county game.
