The Minutemen will look to rejoin their early season form tonight, as they take on the Goshen Redskins, as well as beginning to string together yet another series of wins, meanwhile the Redskins are finally beginning to build momentum after a rocky start to their season.

Despite suffering their first loss of the season two games ago, the Minutemen recovered quickly by winning their next game. Even more impressive is the fact that they were able to avenge their first loss to Memorial with a win against the Memorial team at a tournament only five days later. The Minutemen came out on top with 49-47. As the season progresses, the opponents seem to be getting tougher to defeat. Evidence of this is seen with a comparison from the beginning of the season, and currently. In their first three games, the Minutemen scored no less than 69 points. And were handedly defeating their opponents, including a 40-point thrashing to the Bremen Lions. Afterwards however, Concord barely managed to squeak past South Bend Riley, thanks to a clutch three-pointer as the buzzer sounded, and then suffered their first loss at the hands of the Chargers.

The Redskins on the other hand, are on an upward trend. After starting the season by losing three of four, the Redskins have rebounded nicely and have pulled off wins in four out the next five games.

The game against the Redskins figures to be a tough one. Both teams are on winning streaks, and neither team has suffered a blow out, as well as proven to be capable of pulling out close wins, however, Concord seems to have the upper hand. They have the advantage of playing at home, as well as the advantage of having more time to recover from their last game.

The game will take place today at 7:30.
