Turnovers cost Lowry JV the game against Elko on Friday.
The Buckaroos were really hoping that they would pick up a win in front of their home crowd. However, multiple turnovers resulted in a lopsided 49-6 win for the Elko.
Elko was constantly penetrating the offensive line.
“Having four turnovers in five plays did not help,” said coach John Brooks after the game.
Quarterback Christian Gray echoed Brooks’ sentiments.
“We moved the ball well but couldn’t finish our drives. Passing worked well except for the interceptions we had. Turnovers definitely played a major role in this loss,” said Gray.
The score was 28-0 at the half and Lowry came out in the second half looking for a comeback.
As the second half started the Bucks started out with an interception that gave them a great field position for the offense.
They did complete the drive scoring the only touchdown for them in the game.
After the game coaches reminded the team that although it wasn’t their best performance, Elko JV is one of the best teams in the league right now.
“We need to keep our heads up and prepare ourselves for Spring Creek,” said Brooks.
The Bucks have two weeks to prepare for Spring Creek.
