WILLIAMSTOWN -Preparing for South Harrison is like going on a blind date.
No matter how well you prepare, you don't know what you will get.
Williamstown travels to Lost Creek on Friday night looking to keep its perfect season intact. The Yellowjackets picked off two Class AA programs with relative ease before taking last week off.
South Harrison runs out of the double wing formation - an attack Williamstown rarely sees. Last year when these two schools met in Williamstown, the Hawks forced the Yellowjackets to punt on four of their first five possessions.
Williamstown eventually solved South Harrison for three touchdowns in a four-minute span just before intermission and defeated the Hawks 48-7.
The 2-1 Hawks are coming off an impressive 55-20 win against Tygarts Valley.
"South Harrison scored at will against Tygarts Valley," Williamstown coach Terry Smith said. "In their offense, they run two tights and two wings, and it's hard to simulate. They run the ball over 80 percent of the time and it's kind of like you are at their mercy because they get everybody to look for the run then they go play action and send guys deep."
Jacob Stroupe receives a majority of the carries for the Hawks. The senior has rushed for 432 yards and scored six touchdowns. Four other individuals have rushed for at least 100 yards.
As a team, the Hawks average 294 yards on the ground.
"They outnumber you at the point of attack," Smith said. "It's like a big scrum. Everybody gets caught up inside.
"In all honesty, we can't seem to simulate that in practice."
For Williamstown, its offense has been like a juggernaut through two games. Trey King leads the ground game with 401 yards rushing and six touchdowns. His backup Zach Zide - has contributed 115 yards on only 13 carries.
"Trey can really fly if he gets a hole - it doesn't have to be that big and he gets through," Smith said.
More and more responsibility has been added to the repertoire of Williamstown's quarterback Jake Tracewell. The sophomore has completed 6 of 16 passes for two touchdowns and limited the number of mistakes.
"He's smart, plus he is a good player and a good athlete," Smith added.
On the injury front, lineman Evan Smith suffered a knee injury and will not be available for this week's game. He was scheduled to be re-evaluated on Wednesday.
This week also marks the first of five road tests for the Yellowjackets.
