There is more than one way to skin a cat.  There is four ways.  If you don't believe me, just ask the Greenwood (AR) Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs are gonna need a few boxes of toothpicks to get the cat meat out from between their teeth.

From the opening kickoff, Greenwood absolutely ate the Greenbrier Panthers alive.  Greenbrier turned the ball over on their opening possession, then fumbled a Greenwood punt shortly thereafter, and the roadkill feast was on.  If cats have nine lives, the Panthers might have one of them left.

How did Greenwood skin the cats? Four ways>  Defensively, offensively, kicking, and coaching.  Clearly, the Panthers were ripped apart in all four of those facets of the game.

The Bulldog defensive line dominated Greenbrier's offensive line, pressuring QB Neal Burcham from start to finish, never allowing him to set up in the passing game.

The Bulldog offensive line dominated the Greenbrier defensive line, as Greenwood most often moved the ball on the ground in what looked like a smooth effortless cascade.  Greenwood hogged the ball for 31 minutes of possession time and 80 plays compared to 17 minutes and less than 50 plays for Greenbrier.

The Greenbrier coaching?  What coaching?  On an occasion in the first half, after Greenbrier had made a decent drive into Greenwood territory, on third down, Burcham was pulled in favor of a player who has not even taken a snap all year.  If someone figures that one out, please tell me.  The same null move was pulled again in the second half when Greenbrier was again driving, and again the move proved to be blunderous.  

Greenwood's kicking game was flawless, while it seemed the Greenbrier coaching staff, when faced with an obvious 4th down punting situation, were content with calling simple, short quick kicks by the QB.  You have to be able to punt to win the war of field position.  It seems the Greenbrier coaches have no faith in their punt team, and if you have no faith, you have no game.

Credit Greenwood on their 33-0 shellacking of Greenbrier.  The Bulldogs were prepared to play, and Greenbrier wasn't.  No tricks by the Bulldogs, just straight up hardnosed football.

If anyone sees my cat ran over in the middle of the road, please be kind and stop and move it over into the ditch.
