COACHES COMMENTS:

“A very good win, considering the team had another two week gap in our schedule. The kids executed what was asked of them defensively very well, keeping the shifty running of Walthill backs in check. The offense only ran 33 plays and several were for younger kids, so efficiency was good as well. This team still has business to take care of, and it will be paramount that they are prepared for Emerson-Hubbard on Friday. The team is now to the point of the year, that every game could be the last game, whether by a loss or by Covid-19, so we will do what it takes to protect our interests as a team, either by the preparation for opponents or protecting of our team from exposures. Good win team!”
