we face a team that is coming off a tough one point loss. They beat us last year  and we fumbled a ton in that game.  they run a combination of wishbone and spread gun stuff.

Good athlete at qb, a stable of backs and a meaty offensive line.

we were beaten 28-8 last year.

I believe we rushed for 275 and just fumbled away any chances we had.

You had no 6am's last year. Your team was only together for the fall. You are a much better team.

GATA brother! Take no prisnors.

Agonizing loss. 2 point conversion pass goes through the hands of our right tight end, we lose 13-12. First play of game they throw fade, my corner trips and falls...td. We played pretty good defense all night but offensively again we suffer 4 fumbles, losing 2. Four times.....FOUR....my kids had their helmets ripped off, i had to put in my second team qb THREE TIMES because my starting qb had his helmet ripped off. Absolutely unreal, one flag thrown but they continued to rip the hats off my kids and my guys had to sit out one play. This is a DUMB rule.

You are still in the hunt. Do the top 2 make the playoffs?

Doubtful,

Man, think about this...

dropped two point conversion, fumbled at the ten after a long drive, came up short by 6 inches on a 34 power on a two point attempt when we couldnt get any of our pullers into the hole due to a missed cut block. fumbled a ball back to them after interecepting  A FOURTH DOWN PASS (why?) giving them another first down....

wow, we had our chances and just gave it away there.

I feel your pain. The hard part is putting it behind you now. I have been there, I know how gut wrenching it can be.

How teams make the playoffs?

Lost again, more competitive than a year ago for sure.

a list of positives from our game

Heres a list of positives from the game:

We have worked to improve our kickoff return, mainly pointing out that guys werent doing their jobs and showing them on film how their lack of effort was killing us. Well, we got the double team and kickout that we wanted and had a long return.

We picked off a middle screen, a play wed worked on all week and even though we got beaten by it we learned from our mistakes to make the big play later.

Our sr qb injured our thumb and the kids responded and rallied around the soph qb whos been "ready" all season. Hes never lost a football game as a starter at east, undefeated as the frosh team starter last year and undefeated as the jv starter this year. He completed a pass for a big first down.

Our soph cb came in and forced two coverage sacks.
we saw our defensive tackle not only intercept a middle screen but chased pullers to the ball on a counter play. he was on skates less and more disciplined in his play.

trap was a big play with our jr fullback takign a few long runs to the endzone on those trap plays. 114 yards and 3 tds for his career highs.

showing toughness, a senior tackle played the whole game with what might be a broken hand.

we had a few knockdowns on the ball (defending passes) which was completely absent a year ago. We also had a couple of sacks.

we forced a few punts. (also lacking a year ago).

we got a couple of lucky bounces, on a forth down play we were stopped but fumbled the ball and recovered for a first down. Might be the luckiest play we have had since I have been here.

I like the way the kids played defense to end the first half and overall they played hard in the second half, didnt quit and finished the game with effort on both sides of the ball.

the team we lost to beat us 40-20, we outscored them in the second half, they are 5-1 on the season, we are 2-4.

we have lots of work to do, some of its toughness stuff, we arent physical enough though we have improved alot since last year.  (they crushed us last year with a 40-0 half time lead).


we were young out there at times, we had 4 sophs in much of the game.
