The Flying L’s have done it again with their September 30 win over the 1-3 Piper High School Bengals. The 20-14 win improves their record to 3-1.
The game started off a bit slow, with the L’s down 8-0 going into the second quarter. Head Coach Richard Dunbar gave his thoughts on the slow start.
“We kind of got off to a slow start offensively, but we were more or less not executing properly. We had a lot of missed blocks and missed opportunities to advance the ball,” Dunbar said. “We got stuck in situations we didn’t want to be in. We watched film yesterday and in the first drive we had about five opportunities to score. We either had some misreads from the quarterback or a dropped pass. We need to correct those things if we want to have a great game against Chaminade-Madonna.”
Dunbar also talked about going into midseason, and what it means for the team moving forward.
“We have to become better, more focused, and more consistent. We have to have better play from all three sides of the ball, offensively, defensively, and special teams,” Dunbar commented. “Do I think we’re on a downslide or in for any trouble? No. I don’t see any signs of that. We have to evolve and play better as we enter the second half of the season.”
Senior Ryan Sims (WR) gave his thoughts on the intensity of the game.
“It got pretty intense, especially after going down 8-0. We overlooked them, they were better than we thought. Even though we were down, I know we had it in us to come back and win the game.”
Sims also talked about midseason, and how the team is preparing.
“Going into midseason, I think beating [Chaminade-Madonna] this weekend would definitely give us some more motivation going into the second half of the season.”
The much-anticipated home game against the 4-1 Chaminade-Madonna Lions will be on Saturday, Oct. 9, at 11 a.m.
