It was one of those games nothing went right and yet was one of the closest games these boys have ever been part of.  We will look back and have a lot of regrets and plays we wish we had over.  Turnovers and penalties got us tonight.  We finished with 12 penalties for 82 yards.  1 TD called back.  2 fumbles and 2 time in the red zone we did not score.  This is a lose that hurts but we have to get over it fast and get our focus on SCC.  Losing this way hurts but the coaches know the kids never gave up and that is what will help us win games moving forward.  The Jags had a total of 403 yards to Belmonds 258 but it just was not enough.
