Anyone know the score of the freshman game Saturday.  I just heard that Springfield dominated the Baby Cycs and SHG freshman lost????  Is this true?

I don't know for sure but it wouldn't surprise me.  It happens fairly often.  Freshman and even JV scores aren't all that important as long as the kids are learning the proper lessons.  What matters is what happens when they're juniors and seniors.

I think it ended up something like 34-14 SHS. We were running sideways on a muddy field and SHS used some quickness straight ahead.  SHS has talent, as do we, but a lot more work needed. Still very rough around the edges.

Had a 3rd and goal from the 3 in the third quarter that was repelled and seemingly opened up the dam.  Had a chance to make a game of it until then.

Ok I am not trying to stir things up here, I totally agree with Oldfan about freshman and sophomore football not being as important as varsity, but how can a team beat another team 34-14 and still be "rough around the edges"?????  That just strikes me as an odd statement.

The answer is simple. When was the last time SHS beat SHG on the varsity football field? gocycs.gif  gocycs.gif  gocycs.gif

I was referring to SHG and simply that the core of football players is solid.  Penalties, execution, some disorganization, etc. means "rough around the edges" to me. SHS was the better "team" last Saturday and earned the victory.

If you think the comment is odd because a 20-point loss indicates a more negative assessment of the SHG freshman, you must not have seen the game. A couple plays here or there or improvement of the deficiencies mentioned(and they will be corrected) and it could've been an SHG win.  That's a lot of "ifs", but not enough that makes "rough around the edges" hard to understand.
