Coach Ted Stone was very proud of his defense and the offensive line.
"This might have been the best offense we have played all year and we shut them down. The defensive line shut the run down. My linebackers and defensive backs shut the pass down. It was an all around team effort," he said.
Head Coach Todd Shackleford was just as proud of the offense.
"We worked hard this week with the offensive line on blocking and it showed. The holes was there and the backs hit them hard. We got a lot of tough yards from our fullback Bobby Chadwell and David Fuson was running strong," he said.
