Hart seeks sec­ond win of sea­son against An­te­lope Val­ley

The Signal - - SPORTS - By Jonathan Smith Sig­nal Staff Writer

Af­ter a con­vinc­ing win over Ar­ca­dia last week, the Hart In­di­ans will be look­ing for an­other vic­tory Fri­day when they take on An­te­lope Val­ley at Col­lege of the Canyons.

Hart’s win last week came af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing sea­son opener, but coach Mike Her­ring­ton liked what he saw from his de­fense against Ar­ca­dia. The In­di­ans held the Apaches to six points.

“Dur­ing the first game we had a lot of new starters and they just weren’t hon­est with their tech­niques as they should have been,” Her­ring­ton said. “They were a lot more dis­ci­plined last game and they used proper tech­niques and reads.”

The In­di­ans (1-1) will be look­ing for the same dis­ci­pline against an An­te­lope Val­ley team Her­ring­ton de­scribed as ex­plo­sive. The An­telopes 1-1 are com­ing off a win against Ser­rano of Phe­lan.

“They have a lot of team speed both on of­fense and de­fense so we’ve been work­ing on that,” Her­ring­ton said. “They have a solid de­fense and ex­cel­lent skill guys.”

On the of­fen­sive side of the ball, Her­ring­ton will be look­ing for a strong at­tack, led by Hart’s quar­ter­back J.T. Shrout. The se­nior has thrown for 527 yards and four touch­downs so far this sea­son.

Her­ring­ton said he’s also ex­pect­ing his of­fen­sive line to help Shrout make plays.

“We need good, solid of­fen­sive line play for our quar­ter­back,” he said. “Also our core re­ceivers need to play well. We need to be able to throw the ball and run the ball to keep An­te­lope Val­ley off bal­ance.”
