On November twenty third at 10:30 the Brien Mcmahon Football team faced off with Norwalk High Football in a disappointing 43-26 loss on Jack Casagrande field.
With Mcmahon coming out fast once having a lead of 20-6 over the Bears. it only went downhill from there. The Bears scored a touchdown right before the half to cut the lead to just 7 for the Senators.
With the second half came a whole new game for both teams. With Mcmahon losing sophomore running back Jermaine Daniels in the first half to injury the offense struggled to move the ball. And the defense struggled to stop the Bears offense. “ we couldn't stop the passing game, we kept getting beat deep” (Tsai Zoe ‘19)
Being present at the game it looked as if the Senators had lost a lot of intensity and momentum they had in the first half. Being sluggish on defense and looking very discouraged
“ We came out in the second half thinking we had won the game, and it cost us the game.” (Michael Macari ‘19)
This Momentum change in the second half really showed in the score. In the second half, the Bears outscored the Senators 30-6 behind a great performance by AJ Hall who finished the contest with 3 touchdowns and an interception.
With such a tough loss brings blame. Outside of the program, most of the people blame the coaching staff. But the players seem to be taking most of the blame.
“ We came out in the second half and didn't play hard not them, not the coaches fault at all.” (Michael Macari ‘19)
