After watching his team play its fall jamboree Friday night at Ider, Pisgah head football coach Luke Pruitt was not happy with his team’s performance.
But upon further review afterward, his discontent began to ease.
“I wasn’t happy Friday night, but after watching the film, (our mistakes were) just correctable stuff,” said Pruitt, whose opens the season this week at Woodville.
“We were one guy off from a big play. One guy here, one guy there, stuff we can fix. I felt a lot better after I watched the film.”
Pisgah played to a 7-all two-quarter tie with the Ider starters. The Eagles’ back-ups outscored the Hornets 16-0 in the second half for a 23-7 jamboree victory.
Pisgah trailed 7-0 in the second quarter before tying the game on sophomore Parker Law’s 30-yard touchdown pass to senior Nate Cornelison on a fourth-down play.
Logan Bryson had a touchdown run and Levi Arnold caught a touchdown pass from Mason Holcomb in the second half for Pisgah.
Pruitt said the Eagles were also hurt by “penalty-killing” drives and penalties all together, including one to extend an Ider possession on its eventual scoring drive.
“Take away three plays and we were pretty clean defensively,” he said. “But we’ve got to cut out the mistakes and the penalties, that we made.”
