“We made too many mistakes to win against a team like them,” said Coach Scott VanDusseldorp. “We fumbled the ball inside the 15-yard line that they returned for a TD and we threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. We also need to do a better job of controlling the clock and finishing drives.”
