COACH GERRY STANFORD'S COMMENTS: "The kids played really well; we just missed some scoring opportunities. We had two called back on penalties and then missed a field goal, from a points standpoint we've got to capitalize on those chances.
"Defensively, we played about as good as we've played in a while. The kids hustled to the ball and gave great effort. Offensively, everything we did wrong are correctable mistakes; we just need to get better on our execution."
