A two hour bus trip may not sound the most pleasing right before a game, but the Crimson Tide had to deal with it.

This didn’t stop the players from playing any harder. Freshman Joey Palko said, “I’m excited for the R&J buses and the two hour ride will be a good experience for the team. I feel our team may be more focused before this game because we have a long bus trip for our team to think about the game and get mentally”.

Not only was the game two hours away; it was their first game not at home, and winning on the road is never easy.

Head coach Tom McGeoy said, “I am not overly excited that our first away game is a two hour bus trip. Anytime you travel for a game, the players and the coaches have to adjust to getting off the bus, the new locker room, and what it is like walking out to the stadium, which is usually very different than here at Pottsville”.

Getting prepared for an away game can be harder and different for a team. Pottsville sticks to the same routine when they play at home.

Coach McGeoy stated, “In terms of game preparation, we really do not change things up much.”

Sophomore Raeff Dicello also wasn’t too fond of how far away the first game was. Dicello said, “I don’t like how far away the game is, I wish it were a little closer.” Dicello prepares before away games by “staying more focused and locked in throughout the entire pregame – a lot more than usual”.

After the Crimson Tide won over Interboro, 57-8, the Tide looks to continue the season with a 4-1 record.
