  • Could a 30-point loss be considered a good thing?
        Meade High School head football coach Scott Moshier says it's possible.
        The Buffaloes (0-1) lost 36-6 at Canadian (Tex.) High School last Friday. Considering the competition, however, Moshier wasn't down on his team's performance.
        "That is the best high school football team we have ever seen or I have ever coached against," Moshier said of Canadian, who was playing its second game of the season when Meade came to town.
        Meade forced three turnovers, held strong on two goaline stands and outgained Canadian by 60 yards, but several big plays on blown defensive coverages doomed the Buffaloes.
        Canadian scored 22 points in the second quarter.
        "We felt disappointed in the loss, but, in hindsight, we felt pretty good," Moshier said.
        However disappointing, the game graced the Buffaloes with some valuable experience. From Week 2 on, no other team should compare with Canadian in terms of overall team speed, Moshier said.
        "It made us have to react to speed we will not see throughout the season," he said.
        On Friday, the Buffaloes will move from speed to size as they take on Lakin High School for their home opener.
        "They are huge," Moshier said of Lakin. "They're definitely a team to be reckoned with."
        Lakin (0-1) lost its opening game 26-16 at home against Stanton County.
        If Meade wants to earn its first victory in 2010, the Buffaloes will have to match Lakin's size with their own brand of physical play, Moshier said.
        "We know it's going to be a good football game," he said. "We've got to try to knock them off the ball."
    Moshier said the Buffaloes were no worse for wear following their trip to Texas and he didn't expect to make any personnel changes.
        "We're still solid," he said.
    Moshier said one of his offensive lineman told him he "just wanted to feel that again," in reference to lining up and throwing a block against a fellow Kansan.
        "We're ready to get off the ball and hit someone from Kansas," Moshier said.
        On Friday, the Buffaloes will have a chance to do so.
