Montclair actually scored first in the football game; however, turnovers proved fatal as the Mounties eventually fell too far behind to even think about a comeback against a team that was improving to 4-0 on the season at the time.
“We had a 7-0 lead in the game, but then had turnovers on two straight kick returns and also fumbled a punt return. Our run defense was good and we held their top back, who sometimes gets 200 yards a game to 65 yards on 17 carries in the first half.
“We still have things to clean up, like too many drops by our wide receivers, and I know we will, but our kids will grow from the experience in Ohio, and we’ll be better for it in the long run!”
