"Offensively we put some drives together and it was good to score right there at the end of the half. You know, we're going to build on that. We have a young quarterback, and he is a second-string quarterback. He's only a freshman. So, you know we're going to work on the positives. We got to put drives together and not shoot ourselves in the foot defensively. We have to execute plays. We have to get stronger on the defensive line. You know, we got to be able to hold on," said coach Scott Nugent.

You know we got five, six guys to block three and we're not blocking them. It has to be addressed. We've struggled with that all year. We have to execute better. Some missed tackles and some areas where we're not good in our coverage. So, we got to fix that in the second level with the linebackers," said coach Scott Nugent.
