O’Leary said he would prefer going against a spread or straight I-formation team, but it still comes down to the basics.
“It’s still block and tackle,” he said. “Brockton has it going pretty good now; they beat up on Bridgewater-Raynham (Prep also won, 20-7 against BR). We’re playing 10 minute quarters again, and we’d like to score early.
“They feel if Roberts didn’t get hurt (in the first game), it could have been a different outcome. Maybe it would have been a 40-40 shootout. Who knows?”
