After falling in overtime to rival Ontario in week one last Friday 44-43, the Lexington Minutemen head to Shelby hoping to get win number one in week two. Likewise, the Whippets are also looking for their first win after getting dusted 54-6 at Madison. For Lex coach Dan Studer, he says his team has got to stay focused for four quarters not just a half. He adds that attention to detail and little things can make a big difference in winning and losing. Despite the loss, Lex did score 43 points on the evening and quarterback Trent Richwine ran for 205 yards on 24 carries with three touchdowns, while passing for 97 yards and two more scores. Studer also commented that the Whippets may have been limited as to what they could do on offense last week after the loss of starting quarterback Lukas Ousley in the team's preview against Galion the week before. Spencer Blevins started against Madison with the Whippets getting just 122 yards of offense, but as Studer points out trying to learn an offense in a week is difficult to say the least. Lex holds a five game winning streak over the Whippets. The last Shelby win over Lexington came back in week two of the 2007 season, a 21-14 win at Skiles Field. Both the Whippets(9-3) and Minutemen(8-3)would advance to the OHSAA post season that year.
