Monroe gets extra day off

September 17, 2007

Albany -- It wasn't the prettiest of wins, but the Monroe Tornados did walk out of Hugh Mills Stadium with another win Friday night.

Monroe struggled in the first half, but played strong after the break, and picked up a 25-12 win.

It's their third of the season.

The Tornados take on Hancock Central of Region 7-A this Saturday night.

Monroe head coach Charles Truitt says the extra day off will be a big help to his team as they try and repair the mistakes of last week.

"It gives us the opportunity to work on some basic things (Monday)," says Truitt, "when we would normally be preparing for Hancock. The extra day gives us the chance to work on some things, get in some conditioning, and understand what we did wrong in Friday night's game."

Monroe will host Hancock Central Saturday night at 7pm.
