After a long three hour travel, the Warriors lost a game against Mount Vernon and are now 1-5. Like many other games, the team took this as a learning experience. Coach Kyle Mullins said, “I think our players learned the importance of off-season development. Obviously, Mount Vernon had a lot of players back from last year, and they have improved very much due to a great off-season. I think we also learned that we can move the ball on the ground.”
In the first quarter, Mount Vernon scored 42 points while Scottsburg scored none. Neither teams scored anything in the second quarter, but both scored two touchdowns and Scottsburg scored two extra points while Mount Vernon only scored one. In the fourth, neither team scored any points, resulting in the overall score of Mount Vernon winning 55-14.
“We weren’t able to stop their high-powered, pass heavy offense. They had 15 seniors on their roster, compared to our 5. I was happy to see us put up 300 yards rushing, with Jordan Bristol having a breakout game at running back,” said Mullins.
Ethan Clark (10) said, “I feel like we finally got some success on offense, but the team’s defense was not good. Mount Vernon beat us at almost every asset of the game. We just need to execute and show better effort.”
