Waco excited for the challenge of facing Killeen

WACO, Texas The Waco Lions hope to stay perfect early in the season with a Friday night win at home over Killeen.

The Lions won the game last year in Killeen, but the Kangaroos are a better team now than they were early last year. So Waco is preparing for a tough challenge in week two.

For Waco, defense and specifically tackling is the focus this week. The Lions know they have to slow down the big play ability of the Kangaroos. The defense wasn't as good in week one as head coach Marty Herbst wanted.

Offensively, Waco will try to run the football effectively as they did in their opener. Strong play from an improving offensive line is the key on that side of the ball.
