MT. VERNON —
“I think that's what we're going to be geared up for,” Shaner said. “We sure would rather be 6-3 and maybe have a chance to get a 7-2 or 8-1 team as opposed to being 5-4 and drawing somebody who's undefeated on the year.”
Shaner said the Centralia win does relieve some of the stress that would have accompanied a final week where the Rams were simply just trying to claw their way into the postseason.
“It definitely takes some of that pressure off, that's for sure,” Shaner said. “If we get win No. 6 it's icing on the cake in terms of the playoffs, making our road a little bit easier, maybe. But I'm sure glad we're not 4-4 right now. That's for sure.”
