Rustlers In Playoff Mode

Posted: Updated:

An 0-4 start left the CMR football team needing to dig itself out of a very deep hole. Players say getting two things back, their injured teammates and their confidence, have helped them run the table since going 6-0 down the stretch. The Rustlers say they never focused on having to win out to make the playoffs, but feel ready for the post-season, because they did.

Rustlers Linebacker Tyler Pfennigs said that "we were bit by the injury bug a little bit.  We got healthy and got rolling.  We feel like we have the edge, we've been down before, and we know what it's like.  We're finally gelling together."

Rustlers Head Coach Jack Johnson said "When we went 0-4 to start, I don't think our kids ever lost confidence or faith.  They knew it was just a matter of getting some kids back healthy, getting our team together and we knew we were going to start playing really good and that's what has happened."

The Rustlers will play Capital Saturday at 1pm.  The Helena Bengals host Skyview Friday night at 7pm.  Both games are at Vigilante Stadium.  We will hear from the Bruins and Bengals later in the week.
