“We were able to get some turnovers, but we’ve got to be more gap-sound defensively,” Standley said. “It’s all correctable. What’s important is that more than anything these guys are focused on getting better.”
One area that looked sound was the offense. As expected, Cornwell has re-ignited an offense that scored in bunches last season. Sophomore Quan Hogan provided a big-play threat at running back and broke several long plays on Thursday, creating a balance that North lacked a season ago.
But the T-Wolves did falter inside the red zone. Four times they failed to put points up after advancing past the 20-yard line, something that senior Payton Prince said has to change.
“We just couldn’t finish tonight,” he said. “We have to be 100 percent in the red zone; it was a few plays that turned the game. We’ll come out next week and we have to focus in practice and get better.”
