Anyone who caught a glimpse in person of what Northwestern did to Edison Saturday witnessed what that team can do when it plays mistake-free football.
When the Bulls aren't hitting people late or jumping offside, they are unstoppable in this county and I would say even in the state.
NW's trifecta of Dade powerhouse opponents to open the season before district play ends this Saturday at FIU south with Killian. The Cougars have a huge offensive line that should match up well with the equally stacked NW d-line and should at least keep Killian in the game longer than Carol City and Edison were.
A little tidbit of Dade trivia -- this is the first time since coach Billy Rolle took over at Killian that the Cougars are 2-0 (on the field). In 2002, they went undefeated during the regular season, but that's because a 32-0 season-opening loss to Central was wiped out when the Rockets were forced to forfeit their first 5 wins. And Columbus was responsible for a Week 2 loss, before the Cougars ran the table all the way to the 2004 Class 6A title.
Speaking of 2-0's, two teams that are 2-0 and whose fans should enjoy it while it lasts are Coral Reef (beat SW, Coral Park) and Miami Springs (Ferguson, Krop). It's been a while for both.
Each get tougher tests this week. The Cudas play Varela, while Springs takes on neighborhood rival Hialeah.
