COACH GERRY STANFORD'S COMMENTS: "The biggest part was about four minutes in the second quarter where the score went from 21-14 to 48-14. During those four minutes, we just didn't play real well. And it was us doing it to ourselves, more or less: two turnovers on special teams, an interception and a couple things here and there where we hurt ourselves.
"McKinney North is a quality opponent and has a really good chance of winning our district. We've got to get back to taking care of ourselves, know that we control our own destiny, and we need to work hard."
