The Bradwell Tigers start regional action tonight as they host the Beach Bulldogs at Olvey Field.
The Tigers come into tonight’s game 0-3 but head coach Jim Walsh said his team is prepared for regional action.
“We intentionally opened up the season against tough opponents because that prepares us to be a tougher team when we play regional games,” he said. “I’ve talked to the guys and asked them if they preferred to play easier teams in the beginning of the season and go into region action with a better ranking or play the tough teams, like number three ranked Coffee and number six ranked Griffin, and be set for when it counts. They agreed to keep the tough schedule and be prepared to execute when it counts.”
The Tigers had a bye last week, giving them extra time to practice their execution on offense and heal any injuries from the game against Coffee County two weeks ago.
Walsh continues to be impressed with the development of his offense and said having a seasoned all round player such as Josh Magaw at the helm was like having an extra coach on the field.
“We talk on the sidelines between plays and he has a good understanding of the game,” Walsh said. “He is able to see the plays and read the offense and defense at a different level than some of the others players.”
Historically the Tigers have defeated the Beach Bulldogs the last three years in a row.  Coach Robert Evans said his defense is working hard in the hopes to keep the Bulldogs scoreless throughout the game.
The Beach Bulldogs won their first two games against Savannah and Brantley County. Their game against Charlton County was cancelled and then they had a loss to Warner Robins.
Action tonight begins at 7:30 and the game will be broadcast live on WOAH 106.3 FM. Tickets at the gate are $7.
