Kutztown, Albright looking to build off strong performances

The Golden Bears and Lions are looking to build off strong performances last week.

BERKS COUNTY -

The Kutztown and Albright football teams played well last week. The Golden Bears and Lions hope that success continues this week.

The Golden Bears (0-4) are preparing to face a talented 3-1 Slippery Rock team at University Field on Saturday.

Kutztown was within an eyelash of upsetting nationally-ranked West Chester on the road last week. Despite the outcome, the Golden Bears are happy that they were competitive.

It's been the trend through the first four weeks for Kutztown as the team searches for its first win under Drew Folmar. They've been close in many games, but they've come up just short. The Golden Bears are hungry for a win and they're confident they'll get one in October.

Albright (2-2) will play its second consecutive road game on Saturday at FDU-Florham. The Lions snapped a two-game losing streak last week with a win at King's.

After a slow start in that game, John Marzka's offense came alive in the second half and showed what it is capable of doing if rolling on all cylinders.

Finding that consistency will be Albright's focus this week as they look to take a 3-2 record into their bye week.
