“It is important that there are no injuries and the next thing that awaits us is the match in Kragujevac, the most difficult away game we will have this season.” 

Defensively, the capital city defense features linebacker Kieren Wilson, who bring experience from Missouri Valley University (NAIA). Ilija Jovanović helps anchor the defensive line, while Dušan Ćurčić contributes as a defensive back and receiver.

The Wild Boars go into this game after a 64-7 victory over the Novi Sad Wild Dogs. Running back Ashton Heard put on a show, scoring three touchdowns and rushing for over 150 yards on the day. Meanwhile, quarterback Isaiah Weed was able to spread the ball around to Serbian talent and help the Wild Boars cruise to a 34-7 halftime lead. This week, they’ll face an opponent who also has an explosive offense.

Weed on the preparation for Belgrade:

“We had a great week of preparations with the skills positions, implementing new plays and putting in the work on extra days has helped build our chemistry. Also, trusting in my legs to run when needed will be vital to contributing to the team’s success on the offensive side of the ball.”

Defensive backs Courtney Etienne and Ivan Radojicic will be crucial in stopping Belgrade’s dynamic playmaker Carson Ouellette and the Blue Dragons offense. Look for the Wild Boars secondary to play aggressively in order to force the Blue Dragons into turnovers today.

Etienne commented on the matchup with a dangerous Belgrade offense:

“‘We just have to play our game. We have our game plan and we just have to make sure that everyone is on the same page. It is important that we keep our focus and discipline and the game should play into our hands. I have confidence in our front seven to cause some disruption and make life easy for us in the secondary.”

Fans should expect some fireworks in this game as both teams feature dynamic playmakers. Look for the Wild Boars to play well at home after being on the road for two weeks in row. The Blue Dragons are intent on making some noise and shaking up the standings with an upset.
