COACH JOSH GIBSON'S COMMENTS: "We are getting better each week, and I was really proud of the team. The kids are playing with confidence and belief.

"Durmon had a great game. He was cleared to play, but was in some pain; he came up big for us. I am proud that we had so many different kids contribute on offense. Several kids ran the ball, and they did a great job. I was proud that we held them to just seven points."
