Another game of Warrior football has been played against the Corydon Panthers, making this the Warriors’ fourth game of the season.
In the first quarter, both teams were tied with 6 points. Corydon later excelled in the second quarter by scoring 21 points, while the Warriors scored none. The Warriors did not score in the third quarter either, but Corydon scored a touchdown and an extra point. Finally in the fourth, the Warriors scored a touchdown followed by an extra point as Corydon did not score anything that quarter. Corydon won the game with the final score being 34-13. The Warriors are now 1-3.
According to Jeremy Beswick (11), the team lacked in defense and there were many missed tackles and opportunities.
“We started out slow. For the first couple of quarters, we were just trying to find a rhythm offensively, but we could not get anything going until the third or fourth quarter; but even then, turnovers caught us,” said Beswick. “We are definitely a better team than we showed Friday. We are a young team, and we will continue to learn and grow from the mistakes made during this game.”
Brantley Deaton (11) said that the team lost because they did not play as one.
“Our lack of effort and togetherness is what made us lose. We are a better team than Corydon, but they came out and played harder than us. We showed that we could play with them in the fourth quarter, but it was too late,” Deaton said.
Coach Kyle Mullins said, “We need to have offensive consistency and not turn the ball over.”
