Coyotes Fall to Sherwood, 52-21
It is very hard to keep emotions high enough to energize your actions. After an inspired and impressive opening victory, 30-7, over Churchill, the Clarksburg Coyotes — a team which has dedicated its season to three seniors lost in a crash last June — showed heart but it couldn’t overcome the Warriors of Sherwood.
Clarksburg Head Coach Larry Hurd said it best, “We get another chance to play football next week.”
The Coyotes fell to Sherwood 52-21 on Friday night. “We didn’t come out and play,” is the way Hurd described the Coyotes first half of against the Sherwood Warriors. After allowing a 21-0 lead, the Coyotes simply could not recover fast enough to turn the tide.
“Penalties, misalignment, things we did perfect all week long in practice, we simply did not execute” in the first half, is the way Hurd described things.
Clarksburg got on the board with about five minutes left in the half, with an eleven-yard pass by senior quarterback Brian Walker connecting to senior receiver Ian Krishnan, to start a momentum shift, but it wasn’t enough to over the 27 points that Sherwood put on the board in the second quarter. The Warriors took a 38-7 lead into halftime.
